As most of you know, Bobby and I are the only two members of Backyard Heroes. We also live in two different states. We do a lot of writing and most of the time all recording together in at least one of the states. Today we’re releasing a demo (by no means a final version) that we are both proud of.

We’ve had this guitar and bass part that Bobby recorded a while back and it was just waiting for more to be added. So today, I just got the urge to record. I figured I’d just do a simple scratch vocal for the melody to have something to start with when we work together again. From there I just kept going. I recorded vocals, harmonies, and some simple percussion. The percussion just consisted of me bruising my hand on my guitar case over and over. I sent my work to Bobby and he approved. We thought it’d be rad to share how productive we can be within two states thanks to the wonders of technology. Hope you enjoy this demo. 

We’ll be together again tomorrow, performing live at The Crossroads in Garwood, NJ. That’s right, tomorrow, Saturday, January 5th. Come and hang out with us.

Stay classy, and most importantly, stay saucy,

It feels awesome to say the least. The support we’ve gotten from so many people we know and so many that we don’t know has been really crazy. It feels really good and we are so stoked that people are really digging what we’re doing. Still blows my mind every time someone says, “hey you’re on my iPod.” That’s definitely a rad feeling haha. Well thank you again to everyone for your continued support, keep spreading the word and keep being rad!
