From the backwoods of America to the streets of Los Angeles, the 4-piece rock band known as Hillbilly Herald is taking the US by storm. Packing in world-renown venues like the Viper Room, Roxy Theater, and the House of Blues, the band seems unstoppable.
It all began in 2008 when the charismatic, "rough-around-the-edges" lead singer, Jimmy Herald , got together with guitar player, Mark The Cat Hill. The two sought out to bring rock n roll back to life, inspired by bands like AC/DC, KISS, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Guns N' Roses.
"Hillbilly Herald is BAD ASS."

They joined forces with ZZ Top bearded bass player, Adam Wolf, and powerhouse drummer, Kevin Kapler, who brought the aggressive rhythm section the band was looking for. Together they went into the studio to record their self-titled debut album under the expert ears of Brian Carlstrom, engineer for bands like Alice In Chains, The Offspring and White Zombie. The end result is a slamming hard rock record that could soundtrack an action-flick super-star cruising in a convertible, getting pumped up to save the world.
With unparalleled stage performances and an arena-style show that bleeds rock n roll, Hillbilly Herald is injecting life into the rock scene. So pump up your stereos and pop open a cold one. Rock is back. And its got a face...
What is thy being known only as Crobot? Half-bird, half-bot, or half-alien? No one knows. What we do know is that in the short time since that awful, riff-wielding beast's conception, little has been discovered about how to protect thyself from a Crobot possession.
Luckily, The Dirty-faced Brethren, made of four brothers wielding axes, sticks, pipes, and beards carved from the ancient stone, have united to rid the earth of the evil scum from Radio GaGa ; each of them swinging a different weapon.
The Dirty-Faced Brethren of Crobot is:
Brother Keith McGonigle, bringer of thunderous percussion by way of his sticks from the sky and his Colossus kettles
Brother Sam Grim, keeper of the low lands, rattling bones by bringing the bass like a stampeding Mammoth
Brother Bishop, grower of the grit, master of alien technology and axe powers from the great southern planet Tehnacee
Brother Brandon Yeagley, the throat of Thor, necromancer of gyration, equipped only with hips and a swinging microphone
