History

Heyrocco PearShaped Magazine Heyrocco

Nathan Merli and Tanner Cooper met while attending the same middle school in Charleston. Christopher Cool became friends with the two in Jazz Band later on in high school. In an interview with punktastic.com the band stated, “We formed in Chris Cool’s garage circa summer 2009 and from there we wrote and sucked, and wrote and sucked, and eventually started to suck a little less.” The band name Heyrocco originated after Cool walked into his bedroom and found his pet turtle Rocco on his bed. Cool recalls saying, "“Heyyy, Rocco. Come on.”

Heyrocco's first recording was a collection of demos that the band had recorded themselves titled Comfort released in April 2012. The LP was made with the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign in which the band raised over $4,000 from fans. Soon after Comfort was released the band recorded an EP titled Dark Summer which was never officially released, and recorded at Hello Telescope studios in Charleston by the record producer Josh Kaler). After roughly three years of touring all over the United States, Heyrocco played their first show overseas in October 2014 at the Cavern in Exeter, England.
