The Heroine / Press

"The Heroine are badass players and the most powerful live band in Texas. If you find a louder, better band please show it to me. I don't believe you. This is no-bullshit rock 'n' roll."

Enrique Lopetegui Editor, Music and Screens | San Antonio Current Magazine - Current Magazine

"The Heroine are a powerful driving force in the rock and roll scene. Looking forward to big things from the band and being along for the ride!"

Brian Ball Executive Marketing Director |Ernie Ball and Music Man Inc.

““We are excited to have the opportunity to work with The Heroine. They are an integral part of a great line up for KISSFEST at Sunken Garden, and the response to band has been tremendous! We look forward to working with them on this and many other shows in the future!” ”

““The Heroine – Hard, Dirty, Soulful Rock n Roll which lives up to the saying; DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS!” ”

Marcos Curiel Multi-Platinum Atlantic Recording Artist P.O.D. | Producer - Marcos Curiel, POD

““The Heroine is an amazing live band. I saw them play for Mötley Crüe at the Whiskey in Los Angeles as part of the Guitar Center On-Stage Mötley Crüe contest and they came this close to winning the grand prize!” ”

"From the moment I saw The Heroine perform live as part of Guitar Center On-Stage to a sold out crowd at the Whiskey A-Go-Go, which included Tommy, Nikki, Vince and Mick of Mötley Crüe, I knew the band was destined for something special. Blazing rock anthems belted out by true rock 'n rollers with a frontman that exemplifies stage presence. At Guitar Center we're more than supporters of The Heroine, we're fans."

Dustin Hinz Director Music and Entertainment Marketing - Guitar Center

“Some bands define themselves with style; others prefer to use relentless touring. Still others seek notoriety with the quality of songwriting and musicianship, or with on-stage acrobatics and off-stage antics. It is rarely that a band comes along that possesses a piece of each of these “defining qualities,” yet remains defined by something else altogether: Its work ethic. ....San Antonio....’s The Heroine is one such band.”

“Last year, local rock ’n’ rollers the Heroine declared themselves one of the hardest working bands in the San Antonio biz (see “Men at Work,” July 1, 2009). This year, they’re proving they damn well have the devotion to back it up. Their unrelenting gig schedule and their straight-up, sweat-soaked, kick-in-the-teeth live show guarantees survival on street cred alone. Distilling working-class musicianship into a single Facebook post on Labor Day, Heroine guitarist Dibby Disaster proclaimed: “Gauntlet week almost over. 4 days, five shows. 4 opening shifts at work, and like 6 hours of sleep, oh! And a new Les Paul! Staying on the grind!” ”

"Lynnwood King channels the ghost of David Lee Roth onstage. Roth’s still alive, of course, but King is possessed only by the cool part, the part that died when Roth filmed the video for “Just a Gigolo/I Ain’t Got Nobody.” No spandex or scatting here, but King’s manic gesticulation and king-shit swagger are proof he’s been runnin’ with the devil. King stalks the stage through the band’s eponymous theme song while guitarists The Kid and Dibi Disaster take turns diddling the blues scale. King stomps, shakes, waves his hands in front of his face, throws the mic stand around, crawls on the floor, and several combinations and variations thereof, and the rest of the band, impossibly, keeps up with his decidedly non-hair-metal howl.

"The Heroine. A packed house was ready to end the night with a bang because these guys always deliver. Fast, loud and fun.. Their tight guitars are supported by rock solid rhythm. And the singer has to have James Brown as a guardian angel because Lenny King controls the mic like nobody's business. He does more than sing, he twirls, knocks about & kicks the mic stand with perfect control all while swinging his brass knuckles.
