Refusing to slow down the band is also in the mist of recording their ode to the Beatles tribute; House of Heroes Meets The Beatles EP to hit summer 09 including covers of Can't Buy Me Love, It Won't Be Long and Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.
With The End Is Not The End out now on Gotee Records, House of Heroes has found a sound that is both creatively inspiring and commercially viable. Look no further for enigmatic songwriting, bold epics and clever chorus lines.
“When we started writing this record we talked about writing 'songs about love,' that weren't necessarily 'love songs.' There are several songs about war, but we made a conscious effortto place the songs in wars of the past such as World War Two or Vietnam so that theywouldn't be applicable to our current situation in the Middle East. We didn't want people toview these songs or this record as 'anti-war,' but rather 'pro-humanity.' –Comments HOH Tim Skipper
House Of Heroes is: Tim Skipper - lead vocals, guitar, Colin Rigsby - drums, backing vocals, AJ Babcock - bass guitar, backing vocals and Jared Rigsby- guitar, backing vocals.
This Columbus unit converted to a four-piece unit after years as a three piece for this new chapter as a band. As musicians, this was a calculated decision that has proven to be a masterful one. Former bass player A.J Babcock returned to the fold while Jared Rigsby moved from bass to his preferred instrument, guitar. The result is House of Heroes firing at full potency. And you will not find a foursome that takes more pride in playing music the way it should played--without pitch-tuning or digital manipulation; Each song on the album is heard exactly as it was performed without the aid of any sort inhuman machine.
Continuously criss-crossing the country House of Heroes has created a thriving reputation with their live set. This band takes pride in capturing every note, every harmony, and every nuance of their recordings in their live performance. They are road-tested, and more than determined to leave many more stages crumbling in their wake in the months to come. Look for more tour dates to be announced soon.
