Biography

House of Heroes - Tim Skipper (vocals, guitar), A.J. Babcock (bass, vocals), Colin Rigsby (drums, vocals), and Jared Rigsby (guitar, vocals) - creates a unique breed of music verging on the safe line of pop-punk rock while blending the danger of indie-style rock.

House of Heroes doesn’t just sing songs, they tell stories. Songs like “In the Valley of the Dying Sun” (telling a version of the story of Jacob in the Bible) and “Code Name: Raven” (the story of a spy in the time of World War II) draw listeners in by setting stories of love, sacrifice, and war to a non-specific song set-up and engaging music. Other songs, like “Friday Night”, “Faces”, or “The Drugs the Drugs” show the emptiness of man’s meaningless desires. Distinguished lyrics and music that backs it up, pushing it forward, give listeners a unique experience. A band not scared of being different, House of Heroes certainly distinguishes themselves from the bunch.

Releases include: “What You Want Is Now”, with tracks like “Julia”, “The Lead Role In The Cage”, and strings-backed “Uncomfortable” make the album House of Heroes’s most rock-lead album. Self- titled “House of Heroes” and “Say No More” ( a re-release of the first with extra songs) posess the most edgy, indie-rock sound, lead by songs “Buckets For Bullet Wounds”, “Serial Sleepers”, “You Are the Judas of the Cheerleading Squad”, and 9 minute closer “Angels In Top Hats.” 2010 release “The End Is Not the End” gets its name from the lyrics in the acoustic driven song “By Your Side” of the album.
