Falcon Heene, of "Balloon Boy" fame, has a new hobby. Heene, who was famously (and falsely) reported as stuck inside a weather balloon, is now fronting a metal band with his brothers, under the name Heene Boyz.

The self-proclaimed "World's Youngest Metal Band," Heene Boyz is made up of Falcon Heene on vocals and bass, Bradford Heene on guitar, and Ryo Heene on drums. Ballon Boy Falcon is now 9, while his brothers Bradford and Ryo are ages 13 and 12, respectively.

"The Heene Boyz have made many appearances on television that include two times on Wife Swap, and have they been in the news for their storm chase adventures," the band's website reads.

The band has now released its debut album, "Chasing Tornadoes," which is available for purchase for $7.99. The group's website explains that the album "includes 8 original songs written by the boys." Each single can also be purchased through the website, for $0.99 per song. Or, for the true Heene Boyz fans, there is the option to buy a $11.99 "CD Complete Set," which features two additional songs.

The title track off "Chasing Tornadoes" even has an accompanying music video (shown above). The video shows clips of the long-haired tweens jamming in the darkness juxtaposed with tornado footage.

In other recent Heene news, Balloon Boy's father, Richard Heene, is now marketing a back scratcher, called "Bear Scratch,” through a campaign on YouTube.
