Heroes Die is in suspended animation. Rob and Steve are in talks to record an EP. Rob will tackle lead vocals, and rhythm and lead guitar. Steve will, of course, play the drums as well as covering bass duties and providing those great harmonies you've come to expect.

About the Band

The Origin of Heroes Die

Heroes Die formed in June of 2011 when Steve Soldwedel (Cripplebush, Divided Front) and Robert Kleinendorst (Cripplebush, Shaggis Thrum, Subluminus), both long on hiatus from Cripplebush, and both of whom were sick of trolling ads for new bands, reconvened and said: "#$*@ it, let's start a new band."

They got to writing and rehearsing and, not long after, brought in Sean Mahoney (Subluminus) on bass. The group rehearsed as a power trio, but the songs demanded a second guitar. Kleinendorst brought in John Black, who lends his significant chops to the lead work of Heroes Die.

The band has played the Canal Room, Santos Party House, Sullivan Hall, and other venerable downtown venues, including Fontana's, where they had their inaugural gig. They're out to play every hall in town that can handle the weight.

Heroes Die is spreading its heavy, melodic brand of dirty blues- and funk-inspired rock and roll all over New York City.
