Premiere: MAGNET Magazine - The Heroic Enthusiasts "When The Deal Is Done"

chris daviesComment

MAGNET Magazine has exclusively premiered the first single off the self-titled debut album from New York's The Heroic Enthusiasts. 

The band’s self-produced LP was mixed by Mercury Rev’s Anthony Molina and is out via the Bodan Kuma label. Formed in 2014, the quartet is made up of James Tabbi (Eleven Pond), Thomas Ferrara (Bullseye), Mike James (Longwave) and Dexter Redic (Roots Collider). Says James, “We all hit it off with a mutual love of bands like Japan and Cocteau Twins. I think we knew there was immediate chemistry, and I was indeed intrigued by the sound. It wasn’t forced or revivalist to me. It sounded honest.” You can listen to the single via MAGNET here

The Heroic Enthusiasts is out October 20, 2017 and pre-orders are available now.
