Honor Bound Heroes started out with the purpose of bringing a little NYC Attitude to the California Central Coast, and Honoring the Men & Women of Our Armed Forces. After leaving NYC for the West Coast in the Summer of '05, Pete Truent went on the hunt to find the right people that shared the same passion for music. It took 5 months of weeding out the flakes until he was contacted by a local Singer/Guitarist after seeing a Craigslist posting. Mat Pinto, was a Fresno native who relocated to SLO County for a fresh new start, and was in search of new band project. After a few email's, Mat jammed with Pete and former Bassist JJ Strangler for the first time, and fit right in. It took nearly a year for them to find the right Sound & Direction, but it was well worth the wait. Fusing the sounds of Punk, Rock, & Hardcore, while adding a dash of Metal for flavor.... this Trio proved that this Music can be Soulful, Truthful, and In Your Face. After banding together in 2006, with a long list of shows under their belts including opening slots for Circle Jerks, T.S.O.L, Street Dogs, and Time Again, self releasing a full length album, and internet buzz, the addition of Trailer Cash on the Evil Six Strings, and Mike 'Spike' on Bass this Summer of '09, H.B.H feel they have finally found the perfect lineup. Honor Bound Heroes continue to move forward, work on new material, and evolve their PUNK N ROLL Style.
