Staying true to Rock n' Roll, Hillbilly Herald is bringing back "The Show" with in-your-face guitar slingin', raspy-voiced singin', drum ringin', rock-n-roll, and taking the US by storm. Packing in world-renowned venues like the Viper Room, Roxy Theater, and the House of Blues, the band, fronted by Jimmy Herald (vocals) seems unstoppable. On December 2nd they finished their run with SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators with a sold out show at The Wiltern.
In April of 2012, the band kicked it up a notch, rolling out on tour with STEEL PANTHER in Texas; followed immediately with a US tour as direct support for SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators (the tour began in May). The band will join Texas Hippie Coalition on the road in December.
The band's success has been largely the result of Herald's balls-out attitude towards rock-n-roll and his determination to move the group forward. Herald was given the gift of insight by Slash himself over 5 years ago in a bar in Los Angeles. He had never been interested in performing; had never picked up an instrument or written a song in his life, until Slash came into his life. Slash told Herald that his persona was perfect for the lead singer of a rock band. And thus, Hillbilly Herald was born. The current lineup consists of Mark "The Cat" Hill (Lead Guitar), Adam Wolf (Bass), Hawaiian Brian (Guitar), and Louie "Sea Biscuit" Riel (Drums).
