Hailing from Houston, Texas, Rome Hero Foxes formed in the summer of 2012 as an experimental after school project, blending new ideas of eerie post-rock with elements of punk/post-hardcore driven indie. Starting as an idea lead by singer/song-writer C.j. Burton and Matthew Benthall (lead guitar), the band added close friends Adrian Romero (drums), Emilio García-caro (bass), and Michael Fox (guitar) to complete their experimental jam fam. The group grew from project status to local favorites over the summer, releasing a few singles that found their way on the youthful and eerie 10-track, Hunters & Demons (released March 2014). Later being discovered by ex Dance Gavin Dance vocalist, Kurt Travis, the band was finishing high school and set up camp in a friend's beach house to finish writing their emotionally spiraling debut, For When You're Falling Backwards released via Kurt's label Esque Records (January 2016). After a well received release and a few short tours, members Matthew and Emilio left the band for school pursuits, resulting in the addition of new friend, Andrew Hagan (keys/guitar). After a winter tour, C.j. and Andrew began re-writing what had been discovered as old acoustic demos. Sparking a new and unexpected direction, the band moved from their explosive sound to explore softer ones, releasing an acoustic based EP entitled I / O. The band is now finishing up yet another full length with producer Ben Rosett of Strawberry Girls to be released in 2018.
