His Hero Is Gone

In the last years of the 1990s, one of the few venues for underground punk shows in Memphis, TN, was a warehouse space located across the street from the hotel where Martin Luther King was assassinated. In the midst of the city's economic depression, surrounded by timeless symbols of oppression, social struggle, rock & roll and blues, His Hero Is Gone rose as a new voice for the voiceless victims of increasing globalization, terroristic urban policing, cultural alienation, and corporate greed. Through each of the bombastic and disharmonic chords of its brief existence, His Hero Is Gone burned like a molitov cocktail, spreading a fire through the political D.I.Y. underground whose heat continues to be felt.

After a well-received first 7", His Hero Is Gone released 15 Counts of Arson, 15 tracks as incendiary as the title suggested. After touring aggressively, the band had become one of the world's leading political punk bands, surpassing fellow southern innovators Damad and inspiring even some of the most lethargic and jaded members of the punk rock community to action. The band followed up with Monuments to Thieves, a triumphant swan song, a crescendo of burning anger, thick and tense from start to finish. As it should be in punk rock, His Hero Is Gone caught fire quickly and burned out quickly. Following the U.S. and European tours to support Monuments, the group disbanded, most notably splintering into the very similar crust band Tragedy. ~ Paul Kott, Rovi

God I f**king love this band. I have all their albums, a couple of tees, and a fake peice of merch from them. I wish they'd get back together and make more music. Tragedy is good and all, but more of this s**t.
maybe they are burners-of course you know what they are right-a**hol e s who like phish and go to the burning man in nevada at the end of august-when i go to nevada-which is a lot-cause its real and awful-i go to vegas-i don't want to take lsd-go naked-be a vegan for a few days-make art and then burn it down(well-th a t part is not too bad )i hope to go to vegas in sept.and get my throat slit by a pimp after i ripped off a hooker...
whats with all of the pictures of couples on pages like this-they are too sunny looking-wher e is the acne ? are they steam punx ? wtf- where is the vomit and blood and hatred for hatreds sake ?
punk that actually sound angry... I'm impressed. I'm used to hearing the "hardcore" punk that sounds like its being played by a bunch of preteen girls. this group is actually good.
They need to come back. Tragedy is a good band but HHIG is better.
Man, Paul and Todd really hit it with this one. Wish they'd come see the rest of the family down here, though.
F**k the Nodes of Ranvier comparison. Bands like Nodes need to keep their parents' politics the f**k out of hardcore.
