Have you ever felt like you were born in the wrong time?

For HERO THE BAND, a musical group of four blood brothers from Atlanta, 2020 just isn't their year.

Poised on the verge of their debut album and a summer festival tour, a global pandemic leaves them wondering if they've simply missed their era.

That's when a mysterious music mentor - played by Anthony Anderson - teleports them back in time to 1985, where they have a chance to meet their musical destiny as 80s rock gods...and their teenage parents.

One song could change it all for this unlikely band of heroes, in a first of its kind musical podcast, with an original score featuring co-stars Trippie Redd and Blanco Brown.

It's SONIC LEAP, baby!

    Hero The Band follow Cade Hill back to the future and discover an alternate 2020, with no Covid-19. Cade has successfully risen to music stardom by performing the stolen songs of Hero The Band, and used his enormous wealth to thwart the invention of smart phones. Plus, he’s married to their mother, Holly, which means in this 2020 Hero The Band doesn’t exist.

    The brothers threaten to expose Cade’s extramarital affairs, until he comes clean and agrees to let Hero the Band return to 1985 with the iPhone and prevent any of this from ever happening. Cade offers them a million dollar recording deal and the chance to be superstars in this version of 2020.

HERO IS MY HERO!!!!

I’ve been following HTB For a long time ever since I first heard about them and witnessed a performance at the world natural hair health and beauty expo in Atlanta. I’ve been hooked ever since. Their energy and passion of music is unmatched. And their sheer talent alone is the stuff of legend. I’m so honored to be along for the ride and witness their growth. I can’t wait to see what’s next. Enjoy the success guys and never forget the hard work and faith that has brought you so far. See you in the Cosmos Hero Mutants. ✌🏾😎
