The Strange Heroes / Bio

After meeting through a friend Brandon (guitar/vocals) called up Taylor (drums) about a budding idea of a garage blues-rock band to represent a raw form of music in Minneapolis, Taylor agreed to meet up and jam to see if things clicked. When Brandon arrived to the meg-shift studio Taylor was living in out side of his house, he didn't expect to see what he did, which Taylor wrapped in the warmth of a power rangers comforter and dc comic book boxers, after waking up to Brandon coming into the studio, Taylor simply rolled out of bed put on a shirt ( not pants) and said " alright lets jam". Brandon moving with great enthusiasm, he frantically set up his gear and plugged in. They played with great chemistry, each one almost reading the others thoughts in which direction each chord and rhythm, lead and fill were going, it was a perfect mess of screeching fuzz blues and thunderous rock drumming. As the session was winding down they both were pretty confident that they had stumbled into something great, so they decided to solidify this project with a third and final link in the chain... Edd (bass). Taylor and Edd had been playing in bands with each other for years and when Edd got the call too join the new group he jumped right in and fit like a glove. Sadly though in Dec. 2012, Edd (the butcher) had to step down to pursue his film career. At this point the group had started to get some traction in the local music scene, playing decent bars and clubs to a moderate crowd around the twin cities, and Brandon and Taylor did not just want to sit by and let all the effort they put in go to waste, so they picked up another old rock associate of Taylor's, a friend and accomplished musician Jordan Neidenfurer. With the addition of Jordan it brings us to the current line up of this band of brothers, and now after finding their new brother they embark on their new adventure in music making...the second ep. Their first was recorded with Edd in Sept. 2012,and was dubbed "midnight rush", a name given to the album for the circumstances of which they could only afford enough studio time or a 12 hr stretch spanning from well, noon to midnight. This album featured some very early song writing from the group, very unpolished, raw and sludgy rock and roll, though not a traditional radio friendly album, this rough defiantly has some fragments of diamond scattered in it that's worth taking a look at. Now with a bright future ahead they are currently working on their second ep. with the working title " one by one" in reference to the band taking this ep one song at a time, as if to make sure nothing is put out pre-mature or unfinished. Future plans of the band are to produce a great record for themselves and their growing fan base to enjoy. Along side the second ep that they expect to release in the coming spring, They have plans release their full length debut album in the fall.
