“To be light in the darkness…”
Random Hero has spent three years changing lives through the positive power of music. The band has worked incredibly hard to present meaningful music and a tight energy-charged live show. Along the way, a huge and loyal fan base has showered them with consistent accolades.
In the late summer of 2010, the band was rewarded once again for their hard work when they opened a sold out show for Skillet at Elitch Gardens Amusement Park in Denver, CO. At the conclusion of Random Hero’s set, both John Cooper and Ben Kasica of Skillet approached the band to inquire whether or not the band was signed to a label. Over the following months, Random Hero signed an exclusive production contract with Kasica. “It is a great honor that Ben has chosen to work with Random Hero,” said front man Aaron Watkins. Watkins went on to say, “not only is Ben highly respected for his producing talents, but all the members of Random Hero are huge fans of Skillet.” Pre-production on a number of songs started in September of 2010. On November 1, 2010, the band began recording the new songs at Kasiaca’s, Skies Fall Studios, in Kenosha, WI.
Random Hero has not only been flooded by fan praise, they have also racked up commercial recognition. The band performed on the Vans Warped Tour, and multiple times at Cornerstone Festival, Agapefest, Hills Alive, Heavenfest, and Elitch Gardens Amusement Park. In addition, Random Hero was chosen by MTV to film an episode of “Made”. They have worked with the ESPN X-Games, AMA Motocross, Go Fast Extreme Games, and more.
In 2009, 2010, and 2011, Armed Forces Entertainment added Random Hero to the exclusive roster of bands selected to entertain the US Military. The band has performed their song “Guardians of Freedom” for thousands of service members at multiple military bases. Random Hero's drummer Josh is an active member of the US Air Force!
Random Hero has shared the stage numerous times with Skillet, Red, Relient K, Trapt, 3 Days Grace, Thousand Foot Krutch, Pillar, Fireflight, David Crowder, Family Force 5, Single File, Drowning Pool, Emery, Wavorly, Fuel, Hurt, Framing Hanley and many more.
Random Hero finds themselves in a very unique situation with a world-class producer, solid management, widely appealing songs, and a future shining with unlimited opportunity. Guitarist Josh Bertrand summed it all up “We could not be more blessed than to share our music with the world. A true measure of an artists success is the love they receive back from those the music is shared with…and Random Hero feels very, very loved!”
My definition of "Freedom" is:
Breathing air on a daily basis that was bought by the thousands of service members defending our country...without fear, without oppression, but with hope of a grand future for myself, my family, and my country.
