HOUSTON, TX – SEPTEMBER 30, 2022 – Today, rock/hip-hop fusion artist Hyro The Hero released a new EP, called Worst Behavior, and a lyric video for the title track via Better Noise Music. With over 740K Spotify listeners streaming his music in the last month, this drop comes just weeks after the release of “Who’s That Playing On Your Radio” with Mötley Crüe’s Mick Mars and Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop, a track that is featured on The Retaliators Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Worst Behavior is available now to stream and download across digital platforms HERE. Watch the lyric video for “Worst Behavior” now.
The EP features two brand new songs, including the title-track, produced by Matt Good (Hollywood Undead, Asking Alexandria, Sleeping with Sirens), along with “Retaliation Generation” featuring Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills – a track that appeared on Hyro The Hero’s 2021 mixtape project. Earlier this year Hyro released the Kids Against The Monsters EP, which included a collaboration with Slipknot’s Corey Taylor.
Describing the mood behind his latest body of work, Hyro said, “My new EP Worst Behavior is exactly that, it’s me acting bad on these tracks. My mindset was on performance mode, since I have not toured in awhile due to the pandemic. I wanted to capture the energy I feel on stage through these songs on this record. It’s full-on energy with the same Hyro The Hero spirit, just a little more advanced now.”
“Worst Behavior” is a song about rebellion, in which Hyro writes from the perspective of those who are not afraid to shake the table, rapping, “I feel impatient like I know a blessing waiting, I try not to fly in god face but seems like no one listens when I’m praying, Or maybe it’s up to me and these beliefs are holding me back and I should be on my worst behavior.” The lyric video is available to stream HERE.
Previously, Hyro joined forces with Mick Mars and Danny Worsnop on “Who’s That Playing On Your Radio” for The Retaliators, an acclaimed horror film by Better Noise Films, soundtrack. The track dropped last month, after the release of Kids Against The Monsters – whose title track was featured in an episode of Apple TV+’s Swagger, executive produced by NBA star Kevin Durant – and profiles in The Houston Chronicle and Houston Press, which recognized his incredibly unique artistry.

ABOUT HYRO THE HERO
In addition to acclaim from Kerrang!, The BBC, Revolver and Afropunk, Alternative Press retrospectively praised Hyro among, “19 Underrated Bands From The 2010s Who Deserve Another Listen” and claimed, “You know that band who other groups flock to so they can watch from the side of the stage? That’s Hyro.”
After non-stop touring in support of his last album, Hyro dove right into the studio with producer Matt Good [Asking Alexandria, Hollywood Undead, From First To Last]. Under a flurry of inspiration, they recorded an entire album over the course of just two weeks. In the process, he expanded his sound dramatically.
“You can see and hear the growth in this album,” he says. “I had to go through everything that brought me to this point and I’ve really learned how to focus on storylines and approach records structurally and lyrically. All of my experience built up respect to work with some of my heroes on the new material.” He grins and says, “I want to have my name in this game for a lifetime.”
With this new music, he’s well on his way to such a status.
