Hi! We’re the Backyard Superheroes! A ska band from New Jersey!
Welcome to the ABOUT US section of our webpage. Pretty nifty huh?
We formed many moons ago in an ancient time known as 2012. Times were good back then, we were all young and full of energy. Now we are older than we were then, but still full of energy. I guess that’s how time works.
You may have seen us play at one of our 300+ shows in the past 5 years. Trust us, you’d remember if you did. We were the really, really loud band with the horn section and the guy in the short shorts. You remember now right?
Hopefully you look back at that show and say “Hey that was a really good time I had with that band. They were a lot of fun. I danced a lot. That one guy was really cute.” These are all common thoughts one may have when thinking about Backyard Superheroes.
You may also think- ‘don’t I have an album or two by that band? I think I do, I seem to remember playing it a lot because it’s really fun and catchy. Also that one guy was really cute right?’ These are common thoughts associated with our music.
If you don’t have these thoughts, that ok, because you are here now. Learning all about us and curious as to which one of us is really really cute.
Well why don’t you come find out in person at one of our shows, which you can also find on this page. We play all around NJ, and sometimes all around the country if you’re lucky. Just be prepared to dance, sing along, and have a swell time. Come say “Hello” to us after. Give us sweaty hugs- OH also we are often sweaty. So, there’s that.
If you want to know what we sound like, all of our music is available for free online. You could get our self-titled full length album, our follow EP Let’s Get Dangerous, or many other fun Eps and cover songs we have released. Hey we even did a Christmas song! Everyone likes those.
And don’t you worry- we have new music ON THE WAY in 2018.
So thanks for stopping by, thanks for rocking out at shows with us, and clobber’ on!
Sincerely – Backyard Superheroes
