HYRO THE HERO showcases his visceral blend of intense heavy rock and rap vocals with his new single, a fist-pumping cover of Busta Rhymes’ platinum 1996 single “Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check,” out today (July 13) across digital platforms. Taken from his upcoming studio album BOUND FOR GLORY due September 15 via BETTER NOISE MUSIC, the cover track is accompanied by a lyric video (seen below) which features live-action performance footage of HYRO. Watch it below or directly on YouTube HERE. Stream/download “Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check” at https://hyrothehero.ffm.to/woohah.
“‘Woo Hah’ is my shout out to the old school classic hip-hop that made me,” divulges HYRO. “It’s a Hyro the Hero-style spin on a track that taught me how to recognize the importance of standing out as an artist compared to everyone else. Busta Rhymes was spitting fire on this track, so you know I had to come correct.”
Born and raised in Houston, TX, HYRO has timed the release of “Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check” to align with today marking 713 Day, an unofficial holiday which celebrates all things Houston that’s named after the city’s oldest area code. HYRO has curated a special Spotify playlist, “Hyro The Hero: H-Town Playlist,” of songs inspired by or from his hometown including artists ranging from 80’s rockers King’s X to rapper Mike Jones along with some of his own tracks including the recently released BOUND FOR GLORY single “Sho Nuff.” Listen to the Hyro The Hero: H-Town Playlist on Spotify now HERE.
HYRO, who is currently living in France, teamed up with Houston Chronicle to share his fondest memories of previous 713 Day festivities and a list of his “Top 10 Must Visit” places in Houston including the best restaurants, parks, clubs and more. Head over to Houston Chronicle’s Entertainment page later today to see all of his recommendations and read about how growing up in H-Town impacted his music career.
BOUND FOR GLORY features 12-tracks encompassing HYRO’s long journey to achieving success in music and the ups and downs it has put him through. “Sometimes you may have to go through fires, climb mountains, go face-to-face with enemies and maybe even leap tall buildings in a single bound,” says HYRO. “Somehow you keep going no matter what difficulties may arise because a fire inside is the energy that drives you and there’s a voice inside reminding you that you’re ‘Bound For Glory.’ My album is that voice and that fire is the music on this record.” BOUND FOR GLORY was recorded and produced by Matt Good (Asking Alexandria, Hollywood Undead) and includes guest appearances from David Draiman (Disturbed), Brandon Saller (Atreyu), Spencer Charnas and Dan Sugarman (Ice Nine Kills), Chad Gray (Hellyeah), AJ Channer (Fire From The Gods), REDDSTAR and Markus Videsäter (Solence). Pre-order’s are available now on CD, vinyl, cassette and digital download at https://hyrothehero.ffm.to/boundforglory.
