Hero Jr. is a classic four-piece touring rock band from Indianapolis. Hero Jr. has a reputation for playing different shows each night, often stretching their well-crafted rock tunes into epic jams. On tour since 2012, the band has played more than 650 shows across America. Currently, the band is setting stages for John 5 on select concert dates. One of our Decibel Geek freelance photographers, MDG Rock Photography was on hand to capture all the action in Lexington, KY.

From the Hero Jr. Facebook page: Hero Jr.’s new album, Sometimes You Just Gotta Give It The Business, was recorded live to analog tape in just 48 hours, with the band performing sides one and two of the record in sequence for the definitive Hero Jr. experience. With an essence somewhere between the best of Nirvana and the heavy simplicity of early Black Sabbath and 70s British rock, Sometimes You Just Gotta Give It The Business gives listeners all the expected dynamics, power and unscripted performances of a great classic rock band, with melodic, lyrical and musical hooks that keep listeners singing along. Sometimes You Just Gotta Give It The Business is available now on vinyl, CD, and digital download. In terms of work ethic and influences, Hero Jr. is an old-school band, but their crisp live sound sets the bar for “real” modern rock music.
