Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album Teenage Movie Soundtrack in June 2015, HEYROCCO have played over 100 live shows throughout Europe, the US & Canada. In between touring, the band teamed up in early 2016 with hugely influential artist and producer Brendan Benson. The result of their sessions at Benson’s Readymade Studios in Nashville are the tracks ‘Build it Up”,‘Yeah’ and ‘Always Something New’ with three additional tracks ‘Slice of Life’, ‘Venice Beach’ and ‘Perfect World’ produced whilst on the road in the US by Ryan Zimmerman and Alex Admiral Collier. The first single ‘Build It Up’ is available along with the EP now.
Nate Merli (vocals and guitar), Christopher Cool (bass and yes, that’s his real name), and Taco Cooper (drums) first plugged in their parent’s garage five years ago. This South Carolina-bred trio may be known for their dark, nostalgic pop tunes, but their compelling image and onstage persona is in-your-face rock and roll.
