History

Hillbilly Herald was founded by lead singer Jimmy Herald at the advisement of Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, who told Herald he should start a band. Shortly after Herald moved to Los Angeles in 2008, he started playing music with guitarist Mark Hill, a former coworker at a car wash in Austin, Texas. They recorded their first demo together, and Adam Wolf was hired to play bass shortly thereafter. Herald named the band Hillbilly Herald as a tribute to his family, which hailed from West Virginia and later moved to Elkhart, Indiana, where he was born.

Among the band's musical influences are Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bob Seger. The band has been recognized for its loud, high energy stage show and musically tight performances. The band is also known for Herald's mic stand made of beer cans.

In 2009, the band signed to an indie label and released its self-titled debut album in June 2009. Tommy Clufetos, who has played drums for Ozzy Osbourne, Ted Nugent, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, and Black Sabbath, performed drum tracks on the record. Producer and engineer Bryan Carlstrom (Alice in Chains, Rob Zombie, The Offspring, Social Distortion) recorded and mixed the record. For the band’s 2009 tour to promote the album, drummer Kevin Kapler was added to the lineup.
