THIS BAND! THIS ALBUM!
Heyrocco are heading back to the UK to support Xcerts on tour this April. Their blending of blue-Weezer alt-pop and the sludgy guitar tones of Nirvana and Mudhoney is immense. Nay … IMMENSE!! Don’t believe me? You’ll know within 10 seconds of THIS track if they’re for you or not.
After making waves at home and abroad last year, US three-piece Heyrocco, continue to win fans on both sides of the pond with their infectious mix of grunge-pop. The band are now set to unleash their debut album ‘Teenage Movie Soundtrack’ on June 8th, via Vital Music Group.
The album is a perfect marriage of grungy angst and bubblegum pop. ‘Teenage Movie Soundtrack’ lends itself as much to the A-List radio airwaves as it does to the grimy basements in which these tracks were written. Already being compared to the likes of Nirvana, Pavement, The Cure and Mudhoney, the album is packed to the rafters with gargantuan choruses, sludgy guitar hooks, and boasts stellar made-for-radio melodies.
If you’d be up for sharing news of the tour, and the upcoming album, that’d be amazing. Full press release is attached. And just let me know if you need anything else.

“Cue the light wash denim jeans and tattoo chokers because Heyrocco’s new single launches us right into 90’s teenage movie nostalgia. Like these Southern sweethearts, we admittedly might not have been the coolest kids in high school—but at least we can pretend like we were while listening to some 90’s inspired rock and roll.” NYLON
“‘Virgin’ mimics the angst-ridden grunge of Nirvana, while flecks of Pavement ensure a distinctly nostalgic flavour to these guitar heroes” – NME
“Set in high school, with its corrosive mixture of The Cure and Mudhoney conjuring up all manner of adolescent fury” – Clash
