"Hooray For Earth plays an exciting blend of raw rock & roll with keyboard and laptop elements that work together and make you say, "Fuck this is good." And then you like them forever."


- Luke O'neil


"Dirty-as-shit guitars, bubbletechno synths, and anthemic moping. Quite possibly the missing link between Magnetic Fields and Andrew W.K."
- Carly Carioli


"Hooray for Earth's new self-released Hooray for Earth, an outlandishly good CD and one of the best local debuts in recent memory... Picture Squarepusher and Enya collaborating on songs for In Utero."


- Will Spitz


"There is no doubt that their eponymous release reaffirms them as one of Boston's best. Like much of their output, "How Are You Here" pogos with a crunchy wide-stepped bounce but the well-tempered clavier "Heartbeat" and "Magazines," with its ethereal yearn, prove these boys have a heart."
- Selene Angier


"Hooray For Earth is both madly inspired and supremely innovative."
- Staff Writer


"Every song I've played by this band has sounded tremendous on-air. This is to the point where listeners will phone in, or e-mail, to ask who it is. I love when this happens. Hooray For Earth write songs that build to incredible climaxes later into the song. When the build hits you, it's powerful, and not easily forgotten. After a few listens, forget about getting it out of your head... and heart." - Carmelita


"…Styles collide in a fuzzy mash up. Like the Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan, Heroux touches on grunge in the ambitious process of achieving pop grandeur." - Paul Robicheau

Bio

Hailing from Boston, HOORAY FOR EARTH is a band that plays giant dinosaur rock with huge-ass guitars and synths sort of like Nirvana, Squarepusher and Enya breaking things at a video arcade in hell. Self-released in September 2006, HFE’s eponymous LP has already landed itself on many critics’ year-end “Top Ten Lists” including The Boston Phoenix and The Noise, in addition to boasting regular airplay on both commercial and college radio. In just one year HOORAY FOR EARTH have christened themselves at SXSW, completed a 3-week east coast tour in the process, enjoyed an opening slot for underground legends Mission Of Burma, rocked for crowds of more than 6,000 at Harpoon Brewery’s Brewstock and Octoberfest events, and sold out 2 nights at the Middle East Upstairs celebrating their CD Release this past September.
