His Hero Is Gone (often abbreviated HHIG) was an influential crust punk and sludge metal band from Memphis, Tennessee. Formed in 1995 from members of Copout, Man With Gun Lives Here, and FaceDown, they disbanded in 1999, playing their last show in Memphis. They toured the U.S. extensively several times, as well as Europe and Japan. They released a total of 6 records: their first LP, Fifteen Counts of Arson; a Split EP with Union of Uranus (limited edition of 1,000) which was the last recording completed with original band member Pat Davis; the Monuments to Thieves LP (which was the debut of new guitarist Yannick Lorrain, formerly of Union of Uranus from Canada); The Plot Sickens, their third and final LP; and two 7" EPs, The Dead of Night in Eight Movements and Fool's Gold, as well as a 1995 Demo tape entitled Medicine of Thieves. Simultaneously or afterwards band members played in the bands Deathreat, Severed Head of State, Call The Police, Dimlaia, Warcry, Union of Uranus and more. The core of the band, consisting of Todd Burdette, Paul Burdette, and Yannick Lorrain, went on to form the hardcore punk band Tragedy. His Hero is Gone was characterized by heavily distorted "thick sounding" guitars and lyrics featuring social commentary much of which include anti-consumerist themes. The band and related projects have remained under the radar of a mainstream audience by not promoting themselves via tools of mass communication such as websites or larger music labels.
