In November of 2009, the group released their debut EP "All The Wrong Places," produced by Kevin Gates (Nevershoutnever, Romance On A Rocketship, The Ready Set). These six songs, along with facetime on MTV's Teen Cribs, instantly brought attention to the band and allowed them to begin touring nationally. Though the boys were fresh out of high school, their charisma and professionalism on and off stage gained the band respect and a dedicated following, opening opportunities such as a featured performance at the Texas State Fair, an acoustic tour sponsored by Hot Topic, and support performances with acts like Cartel, We Are The In Crowd, the GS Boyz, and Runner Runner.
The After Party recently recorded their sophomore EP with producers Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount (All Time Low, Mayday Parade, Cartel) and released it April 4th, 2011. By listening to tracks like "Can't Stop" and "Secret Lover" it is evident that the group has graduated from playing adolescent pop rock songs into writing Top 40 hits, ready to take over radio and clubs alike. The group is currently supporting Allstar Weekend (Hollywood Records) on their entire US/Canadian Tour and is set to release their third record this summer. These talented pop rockers are poised to make a huge impact in the music scene in the very near future.
Sandlot Heroes has amassed an enthusiastic following, coupled with extraordinary radio success, over the past few years as they burst on the scene from Bethlehem, PA. The band had three #1 requested songs on Eastern Pennsylvania's Top-40 station B104 and sold over 20,000 singles of their hit, "Out of My Hands."
In October 2011 Sandlot Heroes released their new ep entitled, "The Trace", which includes songs with undeniable melodies such as in "My Favorite Song," and smooth vocals with charming verses, like "All in All."
The band has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in alternative and pop music, Hot Chelle Rae, Boys Like Girls, All Time Low, Yellowcard, The Ready Set, New Found Glory, Saosin, Hawthorne Heights, Jason Derulo and more. Sandlot Heroes recently returned from a whirlwind run of the U.S. with Honor Society on the Rock the Red Kettle Tour.
"Our name, Sandlot Heroes, is meaningful to us – we want to be proud of what we leave behind and that is what it represents," said Kastelnik. "We are focused on rock, our sound is more mature now that we are in our early 20's, and Sandlot Heroes fits that."
MTV Buzzworthy recently featured Sandlot Heroes, praising that "their songs are hooky enough to be pop tunes and hard-core enough to be rock songs. But there's something else floating around in the mix — maybe it's the boys' heartfelt lyrics, or maybe it's their supertight harmonies, but Sandlot Heroes possesses a unique quality that sets them apart from other pop rockers."
Looking ahead, Sandlot Heroes music will be featured on the popular MTV series, "Teen Wolf." The band's debut album, "American Love," is set to be released later this year. Sandlot Heroes is poised for more success, continuing to record and perform, tour the country and add to their growing fan base.
