The band Haunted by Heroes met in daycare. The 11-year-olds play about two dozen live performances a year, at places including the famous Whiskey A Go Go in Los Angeles.

KCBS’ Mike Sugerman Reports:

The members are influenced by bands such as Metallica and Led Zeppelin. They’ve been together three years already.

“All the people that survived the hard rock heavy metal years come out and really support them,” said manager Brett Turner.

The band will play at the Blackbird Festival in Weed, California on July 30, and will play on the same bill next month with Public Enemy and Motley Crue.

“To those who rock, we salute you,” Sugerman said. “Even those born in the 21st century.”
