Nobodys Hero / Press

“When Nobodys Hero plays, they always deliver a major-league performance. Blame it on the close to 80 collective years they've been hanging around the punk scene. But still, they have somehow managed to step up their game -- every note, drum fill, and chorus was executed perfectly. Even though frontman Koontz said that it was "hard to do cardio at 1:30 at night," their set showed no signs of strain or fatigue. They ran through the entire set with their signature and beloved aggression, and the crowd mobbed the stage to add to the already powerful gang-vocal choruses. "It kind of feels like I'm hanging with family tonight," Koontz told the crowd.”

“The musical chops are that good. This is the sound of a a well-oiled band. This is what people mean by musical chemistry. Dual guitar and vocals from Joe Koontz and Dave Santos lead a violent assault on the senses atop the tight rhythm section of Rod Rushka on bass and Doug McKinnon on drums. These guys are not teenagers. But they're still full of disenfranchised anger and brutal energy. This is for punks and punqueros alike! There is no filler here, you wouldn't expect this band to use filler on their work; that is called "pride" and "artistic integrity" which they have both of by the bucketfuls. This is the kind of punk rock replete with energy, anger, and tropical heat. And it does not grow overnight.”

“In Nobodys Hero, Koontz and co. take the blind rage of AAA and focus it sharply. On the song "Effective Aggresion," Koontz is just as pissed as he was when he sung the AAA classic "Hard As Fuck," except on the new track the music has harder edge than AAA ever did. Plus, it's not about smashing a brick into a cop's face. Koontz says, "it's about turning that anger into something positive. Getting up and doing something productive with that aggression."”

"For those of you that frequent punk and hardcore shows around town, chances are you’ve heard of Nobodys Hero. And if you’ve heard them before, you know their brand of street punk is exactly the way it should be played; with plenty of conviction and from the heart. Even if you’ve never heard them before you probably know these dudes individually. These guys have put in some years working this South Florida scene, playing in bands such as Against All Authority, Guajiro, La Vieja Guardia, 32Forty and Defy just to name a few. That combined experience has definitely helped them put together a sound that stands out and sets them apart from a lot of their contemporaries."
