Home Town Heroes

If you’re a die-hard O.A.R. fan, you don’t need us to run through the history of how some of the guys met in grade school and that the band became what it is today while “studying” at The Ohio State University. But we will tell you that the band returns to their second home to rock The LC Pavilion on May 20. Get ready to enjoy the tunes of Marc Roberge (vocals, guitar), Chris Culos (drums, percussion), Richard On (guitar, backing vocals), Benj Gershman (bass guitar) and Jerry DePizzo (saxophone, guitar, backing vocals).
According to Everfine Records, O.A.R.’s new album was set to be released sometime in 2011 before the summer tour kicked off; however, according to frontman Marc Roberge, they decided to push it to around September. Roberge stated earlier this year on the band’s website, “It’s always been rushed, and we just realized, what’s the point of that?” The band now plans to release their album sometime after the summer tour and before the early fall tour. But that doesn’t mean you won’t get to hear the new stuff on May 20.
