Sandlot Heroes is a pop/rock force ready to burst into the mainstream. The Lehigh Valley, Pa. group has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in alternative and pop music: Boys Like Girls, Yellowcard, New Found Glory, and All Time Low. SLH hit the studio with multi-platinum songwriter and Fuel guitarist Carl Bell - responsible for Billboard Magazine's no. 5 rock song of last decade, "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)".
With soaring guitars and heartfelt lyrics, Sandlot's 2009 debut LP, Pretend That We're Famous, created an exciting buzz, earning the band substantial regional recognition.
- The album's first single, "Out of My Hands," was officially added to B104 FM in Allentown, PA, generating 25 spins a week and peaking at no. 15 on the station's charts.
- "Hands" quickly claimed the no. 1 most requested spot on B104's nightly countdown following the footsteps of "So," which two years ago also reached the top of the countdown.
- Pretend is available on iTunes, Amazon.com, and in regional stores.
- The band supported Gym Class Heroes in the 3,500-capacity Memorial Hall at Muhlenberg College, in addition to headlining shows at Allentown's Mayfair and RockAid festivals.
- Sandlot found non-traditional outlets to expand their music including performances at local high schools during lunch periods, classes, and pep rallies.
- The band recorded a downloadable Dropcard of intimate acoustic versions for the Limited Edition CD release of Pretend That We're Famous.
B104 Program Director Eric Chase testifies: "From the minute I saw and heard Sandlot Heroes, I recognized them as a presence that could immediately be placed into the fabric of the pop culture equation that we try to create here at B104."
