The Rockford Heroes band presentation

- in Z-A - Unsigned bands

Please introduce yourself.

I think the best way to introduce the band is a summary that the ezine Metalkaoz.com made:

“They have this pomp-ness but not over-progressed style in their music that may remind you of enough of the works of Queen, Styx and Kansas. When they sharpen things up they tend to sound erotic and emotional like Whitesnake or Foreigner or even Skid Row. When power takes over, there’s a clear Savatage sperm with the atmosphere being supreme and haunting.” (Metalkaoz.com)

When your band was created?

We started out in 2010, but have had some periods with not much activity.

What the style do you play?

The style of the music is (hopefully) very diverse. We like to have some kind of hard/heavy rock “in the bottom”, and then not much bounderies.

How could you describe your music by several words?

Should be covered in question 1.

What is the main theme of your lyrics?

Probably some kind of belief that you can do whatever you want, even if you have to fight for it.

What would you like to achieve with the band activity?

Since we all have families and small kids, touring isn’t really an option, but it would be nice to play some festivals here and there. And course continue to release albums.

How many gigs you have played so far and maybe you visit another countries with concerts?

Very few gigs, less than 10.

Is there anything very important about your band what SHOULD know fans and labels?

We are very careful and devoted to everything we do.

What the formats you would like to see your releases, CD, Vinyl, Tape…? And how do you see future of physical releases?

It would be great to have e.g. vinyl to sell as collectors items, but otherwise I can only see pros with digital distribution. So much easier, and better for the environment.

When you will get label deal, would you like to help to the label with promotion from your side, or you want label do all without your help?

We can of course help with whatever needed.

What’s your reaction towards negative opinions about your music?

It doesn’t bother us much, people are entitled to their own opinions. Only thing I can get upset is when a negative review turn into something where the reviewer obviously really want to insult or hurt the band.

And last question, how do you like our webzine, do you have some remarks towards its look or functionality?

The message when you try to right click at something is a little bit annoying, otherwise it’s a very good looking and functional page.
