Crank This: Hyro the Hero's new single, "Bullet"

Written by

Houston-raised, LA-based rock/rapper HYRO THE HERO first hit my radar nearly a decade ago. I distinctly recall covering his 2011 debut album "Birth, School, Work, Death" for another site (shuttered around the same time), but seven years later Hyro is back! Set for release on June 29, 2018 via RED Music / SONY, Flagged Channel puts HYRO THE HERO back in the spotlight with his crushing blend of hip-hop and rock. Check out the new music video for the lead single, "Bullet" and crank it up!

Recorded with producer Mitch Marlow (Papa Roach, Butcher Babies, Filter), Flagged Channel features guest appearances from Munky (Korn) and Ash Costello (New Year's Day). Pre-order it now and look for more from HYRO very soon. This fall, he can be seen on-stage at the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, Calif. on Saturday, October 13 alongside Deftones, Shinedown, Incubus, Jonathan Davis, 311 and more. While weekend passes are currently sold-out, a limited amount of one-day general admission tickets are currently still available at the official site.
