Heyrocco start a new tour at The Bus in Bristol on the 10th October. They are a new band to these shores as they originate from South Carolina so this will be their first trip to Bristol and they are certainly worth a look.

Its still early days for the band, but already they are ticking a lot of the right boxes with a Kerrang! single of the week for their first single ‘Melt’, XFM love and Huw Stephens at Radio 1 being fans, playing and supporting them.

They are working on their debut album at the moment and it will be out in 2015 – think about the first Foo Fighters album – perfect rock with massive hooks and sign along choruses.

You can see the 50’s inspired video for Melt here (and feel free to embed online at –

And also the live video for ‘Virgin’ is here –

Nate Merli (vocals and guitar), Christopher Cool (bass and yes, that’s his real name), and Taco Cooper (drums) first plugged in their parents’ garage five years ago. It didn’t take long before they quit school in pursuit of becoming the biggest and loudest rock band of their generation.

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.
