HAUNTED BY HEROES rocked NBC’s “Today Show” this morning, January 3, 2012. The segment, filmed in Los Angeles and San Francisco, features the band of middle-schoolers as they play The Sunset Strip Music Festival and other West Coast venues. Haunted by Heroes , whose members all recently turned 11 years- old, have been the subject of national news stories as the world's youngest rock band, and recently released their debut single "Rock Me Roxy," recorded with famed producer Sylvia Massy (Aerosmith, The Black Crowes, Danzig, Prince, Seal, and many others). Their debut album is set for an early 2012 release. "Rock Me Roxy" was also featured in the "Rock Band 3" game.

Here at ChiIL Mama, we know kids rock, and are happy to help spread the word about young talent.  In fact, congrats are in order for Chicago local kids band, Northbrook Garage, who won their studio time to record at Ardent Studios!   We helped spread the word in early December, so thank you to all of our readers who voted.   In another update, from the same Dec. 6th kid band news round up, our rockin' underage friends in Chicago band, When Flying Feels Like Falling (winners of The Next Big Thing contest at The Metro) 
are playing another Chi Town gig this Friday.   The show's an all ages benefit for Chicago Zine Fest and here's the FB event page.
