Lansing band donates proceeds from its new CD to New York Dream Center

Thursday, Oct. 27 — 

A proposed New York City men’s home called New York Dream
Center may see some dreams come true, thanks to the Lansing-based band

Tony Hernandez, drummer of Hyperbole, said all proceeds from
the release of the new album, “If We’ll Ever Change the World,” will go
directly toward starting up a center to get men off the streets and help to turn
around their lives.

Hyperbole — which features 27-year-old Hernandez and
guitarist Jacob Bender and bassist/singer Landon Sheely, both 28 — was started over
10 years ago. Hernandez describes Hyperbole’s music as being somewhat similar
to Blink-182.

“I’ve always liked music with soul,” Hernandez says. “I
mean, as much soul as pop-punk can have.” He points to “Her World” and
“Rooftops” as two of his favorite tracks on the album, which will be released
on iTunes on Tuesday, Nov. 1.
