A perfect meld of third wave ska punk mixed with the "long island" indie rock sound of bands like Brand New and Taking Back Sunday

Since their conception in late 2001, High School Football Heroes have quickly matured into one of the most promising bands in an ever-growing underground music community. For over 2 years, hundreds of fans have attended local gigs, creating an enormous buzz around the innovative Ska/Rock/Indie ensemble. The distribution of a self released EP (2002) and over 3,500 demos solidified a strong, passionate fan base along the east coast. Appearances on both the Van's Warped Tour and Skate and Surf Festivals added plenty more fuel to the fire and helped set the stage for an
undeniably productive and impressive 2004. Wasting no time at all, HSFH kicked off the year on a two week stint with New Jersey's Too Short Notice, that covered much of the Midwest and northern United States. Gearing up for excessive spring and summer touring, the band teamed up with Asbestos Records and Orange Peel Distribution for the release for their first LP, entitled "Close Only Counts in Horseshoes and Hand Grenades". The 14 song disc flows seamlessly in and out of various genres, leading to overwhelming praise and lofty comparisons to bands ranging from Less Than Jake to Taking Back Sunday. Recorded, mixed and mastered in a surprisingly short 5 day period, the disc shows no signs of haste and enabled the first accurate view of the bands musical direction for both the present and future. As spring hit, the band took to the road, playing all throughout the Eastern and Central US, relentlessly until the end of summer. This
included dates with Streetlight Manifesto (Victory Records), Big D and the Kids Table (Springman Records) and a month long trek with the Suburban Legends (California). As the album's first pressing went out of stock, the band recovered from the road, beginning a long writing process while still playing religiously throughout the Northeast. Japan's Trident Style Records jumped on the album's licencing rights, giving the band its first taste of foreign exposure. By the end of 2004, the band had done over 140 dates during the calendar year, sold out of its CD,
attained foreign distribution and solidified itself among the ranks of motivated, nationally touring bands. While it will surely not be easy, the hard-working group will try to outdo itself in 2005, hitting the road with the turn of the new year in an attempt to build upon its rapidly growing popularity. As people begin to take notice, it is easy to see that this is a band to be taken very seriously and one which is poised to make a substantial dent in the world of underground music... Very soon...
