Everything Goes Wrong At Once (2009)

The debut album/EP from Hero Squad was recorded almost entirely during a single afternoon in late February. Meaning the 28th. Most of the band was on vacation, one of the members had just left, and we had much less than the required amount of songs. Somewhat pre-occupied by his other RPM project Thoughtcrime, Zane did not help much in the process of the album making. But eventually, the album was completed, albeit at 4:00 in the morning on March 1st.

BIOGRAPHY

We began as a once magnificently irritating spontaneous quasi-accapella group, known badly as Foxy Lin Saacs and the Staubby Brown Daniels. Creating such classic hits as "My Shoes Are On My Feet (The Walking Down The Street Song)" and "Butt", we managed to book several successful shows in the elevators of UNH during our thriving period. Of one week. After months of not caring and disliking us, we decided to be a band that was actually...good. You know, like one of those ones that plays instruments and stuff. Yeah, them. A few failed practices and angry band members led to a temporary "hiatus" for...that band that didn't have a name yet. Having participated in the RPM Challenge for the last two years, Zane...did stuff. Finally, the band decided to triumphantly continue and quickly decided upon a name. Meaning Zane created a page for the band without consulting any of the members. But really, it's the same sort of thing. Thus, Hero Squad was born. Unfortunately, a conflicting schedule and the already fairly conflicting RPM Challenge forced Hugo to leave the band.
