7BIT HERO

We are an indie bitpop band that makes video games you play at our shows!

We are experimenting with new ways of combining video games, concert visuals and audience interaction. At our show, your smartphone will be your joystick that allows you to control a character in the multi-player game that is projected behind the band. Your opponents or friends are somewhere in the crowd around you, and the band is playing the soundtrack.

7bit Hero recently played at the incredible PAX AUS which saw 40,000 people attend, Festival of Voices in Tasmania and QUT’s robot festival, Robotronica. Their song Come on. Stand out was nominated at the Q Music awards for best pop song.

. . . I may have witnessed, last Saturday night, a spot of history in the making. Brisbane band 7Bit Hero’s launch for their debut EP ‘We Eat Loot’ was a groundbreaking cross-media experience, and I’m grateful I got to be a part of it.

Bec Wolfers, Heavy and Weird

Mix together a love of pop music, electronica and video games and you get 7bit Hero. This is bright and fun like fireworks!
