This Frontier Needs Heroes return

The Dadada

I complain about the inbox and then I get “The Ant and the Grasshopper” from This Frontier Needs Heroes, an alt-folk band led by the Lauretti siblings. The Brooklyn-based outfit paired up with some Athens musicians to record this one.

Check out “Hooky” while you’re at it:

George Clooney live at FUSION

Brooklyn band This Frontier Needs Heroes play this lovely track entitled “George Clooney,” at Fusion headquarters in Miami. “George Clooney” – the song – is about the universality of loneliness, because, yes, even George Clooney – the actor and renown humanitarian – gets lonely.

Kickstarter Campaign for new album HOOKY


Dear Friends,

We have some exciting news to announce – our new album HOOKY will be released on August 27, 2013.  We recorded it in Philadelphia last summer with an awesome new band on 2″ Analog tape, and we can’t wait for you to hear it!

The first single, GEORGE CLOONEY premiered on CMT last week and is available as a free download for a limited time.  Check it out here:

 Today, we launched a kickstarter campaign to raise $10,000 to release HOOKY.  For the past 5 years, we have essentially been operating as an independent record label releasing albums, touring in 8 countries and doing the millions of things necessary to be a successful band.

All of the money raised will go to making cds and vinyl, hiring a publicist to do press and a radio campaign, hiring artists to make music videos, and album artwork and booking tours to promote the album.

We are so grateful for all of the opportunities and experiences we have had and for all of your love and support.  We couldn’t do this without you!

Watch the video I made about how the Heroes got started and donate here today.

More updates will be coming soon!
