The Austin Sound Reviews our New Video


We woke up this morning and finally after 100,000 miles on the road we are famous! REALLY FAMOUS!!! Thanks world wide web... Check out this awesome review of our new Music video from Austin's premiere Indie Rock news outlet/ purveyors of all that's cool: THE AUSTIN SOUND

"The Lonesome Heroes are a wandering lot, so maybe we shouldn't be too surprised that it took them about three years to make a video for "Don't Play to Lose". We give them a pass on the old tune, though, because the video is pretty great. How can you not love two adorable kids escaping from some hardcore bikers and bouncers?! It's like Goonies II: Goonies in the City! Or something. Kudos to Daniel Stolzman of Frameless Films for directing the video, and to Rich Russell and Landry McMeans for wherever they dug up their younger counterparts. As for the Heroes themselves, they'll be back in town after last month's trek up into the north east for a gig at the Continental Club on Saturday, January 16 with Lil' Travis and Grand Champeen. Check out the video below:"

December 2009 East Coast Tour


Howdy y'all, the New York City music video release and our East Coast tour home were amazing. Despite breaking down in Nashville for 5 days, Helga, the star of our music video, made it home safe, and we even got a good country song out of it all. Thank you to everyone that gave their time to help us with the music video, and a special thanks to Margo and Jeremy from Buffalo Clover and Lilly Hiatt for helping us out in Nashville, and to all the guys at Athens Imports for keeping the dream alive.

Lonesome Heroes in Austin Film Festival Release: "Straight to the Bone"


Wow we are movie stars! Landry and I make a cameo appearance in Erik Mauk's new film "Straight to the Bone."

Here's the story: Jay and Shannon have been together since college. Now, both approaching 30, Shannon makes an understandable request for the ultimate commitment. Unfortunately, Jay does not see the need for such a legal definition of their relationship. Frustrated, Shannon seeks comfort in the arms of Blake - a new friend who seems to share her ideals about the future. Does she gamble on this new opportunity or stick it out with the one she loves - who may not be able to give her all she needs? Mauck weaves the always complicated story of relationships set against the backdrop of Austin, creating a film that also reads as a love song for the city in which it takes place. We explain the logistics of Chicken Shit Bingo @ Ginny's Little Longhorn, then the characters come to the Hole in the Wall to watch our band play. It's really awesome! The Film is showing at the Austin Film Festival this weekend. 9:30 PM Thu, Oct 22 Rollins Theater 5:15 PM Sat, Oct 24 Alamo Drafthouse Lake Creek
