Hollywood Heartthrob : Takeover
With their debut album, The Takeover, being released late in 2008, Hollywood Heartthrob is being talked about as "the next big thing" in 2009. See what the critics have had to say: ".. dueling guitar solos shine with melodic dexterity.." "..a bit of a metal edge in their style, but also brings classic rock touches to the table." "After Hollywood Heartthrob's set at Celebrity Theatre, the backstage area bears all the trappings of a Mötley Crüe tour bus. Empty cases of beer are strewn across the counters, guitars rest precariously on the arms of black leather couches, and scantily clad girls line up by the band's dressing room door. The air is thick with hairspray. A few giggly girls in tight dresses crane their necks around the crowd to try and get a peek inside the dressing room. 'They're in there,' a girl popping out of a faux leopard-skin dress whispers excitedly. 'What should we do?' asks a girl in a napkin-size silver top. 'I want to say hi, but I don't want to, like, crowd them.' The crowding of the band is inevitable at this point."
