Heyrocco will release their debut album, Teenage Movie Soundtrack, on June 2nd (stream here), but today they're spending Seven Questions In Heaven with us!
Describe your music for our readers who may not be familiar with you.
Our tunes sound like a perfect combination of dad rock meets mom rock. Sometimes sad and sweet for the ladies or loud and pissed for the bros. Sound guys usually like us, if that means anything. Which we think does. For they are spies.
Who are your musical influences and idols?
We like a lot of classic rock bands like Sabbath, Led Zep, David Bowie, as well as '90s cali shit like Sublime, Fecal Matter, and Gin Blossoms. We obviously like of a lot of records, mostly consisting of loud guitars.
What was the first album, cassette, or CD you bought with your own money?
Chris Cool: Green Day, American Idiot
Tanner Cooper: Jimi Hendrix, Smash Hits
Nathan Merli: Shrek soundtrack
What was the strangest gig you've ever played?
Maybe on the back porch of the windjammer wearing bike helmets or in this cold weird mexican cellar in St. Louis on acid. Definitely the latter, we played with our trash pop dawgs Sun Club from Baltimore and there was literally one girl there. She let us all stay on the floor of her apartment while her roommate blared metal for 12 straight hours. It was sick.
What is your current favorite guilty pleasure?
Eating two of the same things in these towns we visit. For example, today we're one weinerschnitzel deep in Hamburg but as soon as I finish these questions we're going to go have another. Then probably lay in a park.
If they named an ice cream flavor after you, what would be the name and why?
Gotta give this one to my man "Ice Cool" because he wears the most ice and is by far the sweetest. Although hopefully the name doesn't imply the ice cream sucks and sat in the back of a freezer for a month.
Final question: You're the opening act of a music festival. You can get any five artists, living or dead, to perform on the bill with you. Which five do you choose and what song do you all perform as the final jam?
John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and Jimi Hendrix playing "Dazed And Confused" into "Manic Depression" into "Space Truckin'" somehow going BACK into "Dazed And Confused."
