"One More Won't Kill Us"

'One More Won't Kill Us' is a compelling combination of snarling riffs, thundering drums, wailing solos and infectious melodies boasting an icon-in-waiting in the form of lead singer Tippi.
She imbues each track on this punchy debut with wonderfully gravelly vocals, bringing some much needed personally and youthful rage to the mix. With top quality production and more inventive songwriting, this album could certainly have been improved on, but as it is the work boasts a charm and good fun factor.
An impressive first foray then, which holds much promise, and one that should ensure The Hedrons work their way into all of our hearts.

"One More Won't Kill Us"

****

We need bands like The Hedrons, girls with attitude who arn't afraid to rock.
There are a few nods to greats like Siouxsie Sioux and Suzi Quato on their eagerly anticipated debut album, a blend of fast, vibrant, scuzzy indie punk.
It's a raw sound softened at times by the vocals of lead Hedron Tippi, who managed to both snarl and sweetly seduce. Most songs are three minute sonic blasts such as Falling Star. - Sunday Mail (Seven Days)


"One More Won't Kill Us"

****

'Empire Records' meets 'Wayne's World'; this is thrashy punk rock with attitude. Tia Carrere can easily be imagined playing this. Lead singer Tippi has a powerful voice which is not lost over the fast paced energetic punk sound - especially on Heatseeker which I listened to 15 times in a row - that will see The Hedrons successfully through the first part of 2007. They have already played over 120 shows and this is evident in the sound, well rehearsed but raw, smoth but gritty; very festival, very mosh pit, so hot right now - only one problem, it's a tad samey but the only way is up for the 'Drons.

Bio

The Hedrons music is decidedly one part Ramones-esque brawn, one part femme-fatale roar, and one part ruthless guitar-driven nerve. Or as lead guitarist Rosie humorously puts it, “If you listen to us, you wouldn’t realise it was girls until Tippi starts singing – you’d think it was a bunch of big hairy guys playing.” And although the girls would personally describe their sound as the modern love child of the Foo Fighters and Joan Jett, they would also say that the very same is proudly godfathered by Iggy Pop & The Stooges.

In 2005 The Hedrons were formed in their native Glasgow. With a relentless gigging schedule, a UK Top 20 indie single and further back-to-back Top 5 indie singles chart success, the four-piece have established themselves as one of the country’s foremost emerging rock bands. This has only been further emphasized by the recent release of the band’s debut album ‘One More Won’t Kill Us’ which accomplished further indie chart triumph when it broke the Top 40 of the official UK indie album chart.

In the UK throughout 2006, The Hedrons were the focus of many a press feature and gained plenty of airplay, including from the likes of Radio 1 and XFM. The band was first tipped in the NME who said of them 'an all-girl four-piece who sound like Patti Smith meets Penetration with a dash of early Blondie and a smidging of The Runaways... you have to hear this band!' Off the back of this attention and all their touring, The Hedrons were confirmed to perform at several summer UK summer festivals including Download at Donington, T In The Park and Guilfest. Of particular significance, the band was invited by the band Alice In Chains to step in as special guests at their only UK show at the London Astoria. Overall, The Hedrons satisfied a healthy appetite of over 150 gigs by the end of the year, accomplishing sell-out status at many venues up and down the UK / Ireland and generally causing much fan frenzy wherever they appeared. One of those gigs gained special significance, when in October The Hedrons became the first British band ever to play a live, virtual gig as 3-D figures inside the virtual world ‘Second Life’ as avatar’s of the band performed in the customised venue ‘The Hedro Dome’ whilst the real band performed in Glasgow!

Release wise, the band’s first single ‘Be My Friend’ was released in July 2006 on Scottish indie label Measured Records and entered the official UK charts as a top 20 Indie Single, selling out of its limited edition vinyl pressing as did the second single ‘I Need You’ that was released in October and entered the same chart at number 5. A third single ‘Heatseeker’ was released in January 2007 and achieved identical top 5 indie chart success. The debut album ‘One More Won’t Kill Us’ was released in February and was met with an official Top 40 indie album chart position.

This year was kicked off in typical Hedrons fashion with the band hitting the road in the UK for yet another headline tour. The album has just been released in Japan to frenzied acclaim, and live dates there are currently being lined up. March saw them venture across the Atlantic for the first time as they flew in for a mini-tour across North America, including showcases at both Canadian Music Week and SXSW as well as dates in New York and California. The riotous foursome have been received extremely well by industry heavy-hitters and college students alike as anyone could tell from the sell-out attendance at venues like The Key Club, The Roxy and Spaceland in LA or The Knitting Factory in New York. Next up is a bout in Germany as they head over to play a string of dates for British Music Week which will stretch across Berlin, Cologne, Hamburg and Munich and yet another killer festival line-up for the summer which will include a main stage appearance at this year’s Isle Of Wight festival.

Although The Hedrons have just started out in their career, they have already made a healthy impact on the music scene. And, according to drummer Soup, one thing’s for sure, “For four girls, we make one hell of a noise.”
