Wednesday Night Heroes
Wednesday Night Heroes
The best way to comprehend the glorious world of the Wednesday Night Heroes is to understand the importance of making the perfect mix-tape. Two crucial ingredients are necessary: first off, you need friends whom you can share a tape with and secondly, you need to have some killer music to induce the craziest slam pit at any dinner party or high-fiving convention.

In 1997, four friends from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada wanted to start a band that would mix up the great U.K. sounds of The Professionals, the Cockney Rejects, Chelsea and the Clash with their love for early 80s hardcore, like GBH, Bad Brains, 7 Seconds, SNFU, and Naked Raygun. Why couldn’t music make a statement and be fun at the same time? Bands were becoming either too serious or too retarded. In the 90s, punk music became stale and cliché and degenerated into sweatpants versus squeegees. The void needed to be filled and The Wednesday Night Heroes were willing to make punk fun and a threat once again. After honing their musical chops on a nearby mountain and playing bonecrushing punk anthems to the local wildlife, the Wednesday Night Heroes finally decided to bring their show to the world, playing every place that punks needed an outlet to go off since 2001.

2006 saw the Wednesday Night Heroes tearing up North America with the likes of A Global Threat, The Briefs, Youth Brigade, and the Casualties. Although Manowar and ZZ Top turned down the possible WNH tour, the boys pressed on with the hope that one-day they would “out-muscle” and “out-beard” their contemporaries. With a high flying energetic show, the Wednesday Night Heroes invite every kid who feels out of step or pissed off with their surroundings to come out, release their wiggles, stage dive and have some fun.

If you can’t wait for the show, check out the brand new album Guilty Pleasures slated for BYO this year. With a nice cross-section of hardcore punk and anthemic choruses, the WNH offer up a mixtape for all those interested in music that strays away from any preconceived notion of streetpunk or hardcore. Life’s too short. It’s time to think outside the box. No borders and Guilty Pleasures.

Keep the Faith!
