Heroes Wear Red on the roof

2011-01-18 15:58
Heroes Wear Red is a band that has its roots firmly planted in SA music history. Born from an off shoot of Sugardrive, bassist Gavin Wienand teamed up with Berkley Music graduate Timothy Kroon and 4 years on have proved their worth as a song writing team.

Their debut album Surviving September, produced by US rock guru Rae Dilleo (Filter, Henry Rollins) released in 2008 spawned 3 hugely successful singles, "Beautiful Way", "Am I" and "Reach Out". Backed by the release of the video for "Am I" HWR has found tremendous support with MK viewers.

Band members Gavin, Tim and Tumi Mothei on guitar are currently writing new material for a series of "Digital Only" single releases, the first of which was released in December 2010.

Titled "Bring Me Love", HWR secured a video budget through the MK MVP competition.

HWR will be performing a never before attempted acoustic set at Trailer Park atop the Grandaddy Hotel on January 20 2011 in Cape Town and will be recording the set live. They will follow that up with a set at RAW on the January 21 with local Cape Town band Reburn.
