Wherein Our Heroes are back for 2018 with a new sound courtesy of Calgary-based musician and producer, Franklin D. Spoiler-laden reviews are delivered for both Godless and The Last Jedi. Former WWE superstar, Virgil, has a helluva time posing as Virgil van Dijk on Twitter. Harry Kane sets a goal-scoring record in 2017, but should he focus more on team-based accolades?

Calgary-based musician and producer Franklin D has been working in the Alberta scene since 2001. Over the last few years he has spent his time behind the kit as drummer and producer of local French-language based garage pop group The Synthetiques. Prior to that, he spent a decade as founding member, bassist and co-producer of local powerhouse Seven Story Redhead. You can catch Franklin D live in the coming months as two new projects unfold, an as-yet-unnamed analog electronic project as well as a new rock and roll band getting set to debut!
