NOH Short Info

There won't be many bands that play their first ever show headlining a sold out Opera house, but New Opera Hero's live performances are so extraordinary they were passed around museums and theatres long before setting foot into any venue.

Once you realise that the London trio is led by a projected baby that is controlled live on stage you understand how New Opera Hero manage to thrust the audience on a musical rollercoaster ride that veers between alternative anthems and upbeat electronica. "We combine the live energy of a guitar band with the big beats of electronic music and the baby makes sure everyone keeps up when we switch,” explains Steff Ungerer who composed, directed, designed and performed New Opera Hero's first show at the Royal Opera in Liege, Belgium in 2009 together with co-founder Mike Wilson.

The 3D holographic electro/rock set that followed featured a number of talented singers including Josie Lloyd, James Manning and Fiona Bevan, won them two MAMA awards and gigs on major performance stages like the Lowry, Manchester and Kinetica Art Fair, London. However it wasn't until their set on the main stage of Germany’s Fusion Festival in 2013, that New Opera Hero became a bona-fide band.
Inspired by the amazing audience reaction, Steff started work on the music production side, adapted the show for the gigging circuit, and in late 2014 he took the band on the road after finding a perfect match to his song writing in the incredible vocal range of singer Agon and the sound obsession of drummer Raoul Terzi.

The soundtrack 'Eat Work Sleep' that comes out on Berlin's R.O.T label on 28.11.15 will be NOH's first release. People who know the party atmosphere of their live concerts with sounds that remind of Awolnation, Crystal Castles and Moderat will discover a more experimental side to this band, mixing electronic beats, classical elements and trademark explosive choruses to accompany a storyline that follows their baby through life.

Whilst an official release seems to indicate that the band is settling on a more traditional course, this pretence of normality will disappear quickly once you see New Opera Hero live on stage.
