Heroes In Hiding show how it’s done DIY.

The single ‘Hospital” from Independent Irish band Heroes in Hiding has been added to the 2fm National Playlist and in good company too, alongside Lady Gaga, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Jason Derulo, Shawn Mendes, Craig David and fellow Irish acts The Blizzards (Universal Music/Island), The Riptide Movement (Universal Music), Gavin James (Capitol/Sony), Picture This (ChiefDogRecs) and Walking On Cars (Virgin EMI). Heroes In Hiding are the only Irish band on the National playlist not signed to a Major or Indie publisher, management company or label! Bringing DIY to a whole new level on this single release.

The band have been heavily promoting the LP release and the Single and invited their fans to help them launch the LP by a FundIt campaign which reached the target in advance of the deadline, proving that fan commitment is still live and kicking in Independent music.

Heroes In HidingSince the release of debut EP “Hush” in 2014, Heroes In Hiding have gathered a momentum that is now in full pendulum swing. The burgeoning band are centre stage in Ireland as one of the most promising talked about acts on the scene. Having performed at festivals such as Electric Picnic, Forbidden Fruit, Castlepalooza, BD Festival, Life Festival, even securing a slot at Iceland’s Secret Solstice festival – the band are now ready to release their first LP titled ‘CURTAINS’ which is due for an autumn release date of Oct 7th 2016.

The first single from the LP, which was released earlier in the year: “No, You’re a Rabbit” graced many airwaves across Ireland including coveted National Playlists. Follow up track ‘Hospital’ is out now and has been received with National acclaim from National Radio (Today FM, Rte1&2, BBC all awarding it with ‘Track of the week/day’), National Press (The Star, The Irish Times) and many more. Recorded by Jack Dunne and Cian Donohoe in Windmill lane and Block C Studios, the LP was Mixed and Mastered by Martin Quinn in Jam Studios.

‘Hospital’, the lead single, documents a recent close encounter with death by a member of the band Joe Carroll: “I was on my way home from a friend’s birthday party on a hired coach. There weren’t enough seats so I was standing up at the back. I leaned back and fell out of the door and onto the motorway. I don’t remember much of the incident itself and the next thing I remember was lying on a trolley in the hospital in a neck brace. Luckily I didn’t sustain any lasting injuries but I was fully aware of how close I came to being much worse off. On my second day in hospital I heard a nurse using some sort of machine behind the curtain on the patient next to me. It was bleeping with two harmonious tones. Something told me I had to make a song out of it so I recorded it on my phone (which had miraculously survived the fall). A few days later when I was at home and feeling a little better I put the recording onto my laptop and recorded a rough draft of the song “Hospital”. The song is a document of my experience that night, and my realisation that life is very fragile and something to be cherished.”

Heroes In Hiding announce FundIt Campaign for new visual & auditory gig experience.

HEROES IN HIDING launch a FundIt campaign to bring you a unique visual and auditory experience at their next gig, but they need YOU to make it happen. Read the below information from the band to find out more!

press-4The Idea

This year our aim is to create a show that is entirely unique to the Irish music scene from which to launch our upcoming record.

Entitled Curtains, the project is a live physical and visual representation of a collection of songs. We invite you to experience a space where the boundary between the eye and the ear becomes blurred, and the barrier between the band and the audience becomes skewed.

Four walls line the edge of a square: you are invited to enter. Images are projected on all four sides. Your eyes turn to follow, your ears always alert.

We will toy with your senses and pick at your emotions so that you leave with something more than just a ticket stub. For as long as we have been together on stage it has always been us telling you the story. This time around we want you to be a part of the story.

The Band

Heroes in Hiding are made up of Joe Carroll, Oisín Jacob & Liam McCabe.

To You and The Crew

We have been together as a group since 2005. Since then, we genuinely couldn’t have made it to where we are without your support. Our success thus far is a direct result of your commitment.

We have had the opportunity to play on some of the biggest stages in both Ireland and abroad, we’ve worked with an endless amount of amazingly talented musicians, producers, sound engineers, light engineers, stage crew, promoters etc. and have never taken a single moment for granted.

This project will give us yet another chance to work with a great bunch of people. We have a dedicated crew and have joined with Second Frame Films, who will be curating the visuals for the show.

Why a Fund it?

Curtains is an experience. An experience that we would like to share with you at a specific time in a specific place. On this occassion however, we require some financial assistance to create a project of this scale.
