Heroes & Zeros is a rock band from Norway. The group is composed of Hans Jørgen Undelstvedt, Simen Krogstie Lagesen, and Arne Kjelsrud Mathisen. Its members grew up together in a small town on the southern coast of Norway called Lillesand. After developing their sound together, they moved to Oslo, where they currently live when not on tour.

Their music is a breed of their own, combining elements from a variety of styles to call their own. Heroes & Zeros got its name because it represents the highs and lows in life.

The band played publicly for the first time at Skuret in Oslo in 2005. They performed on the Zoom-tour around Norway. Their first recording, "Cellophane", won the "Urørt" final on the national radio station NRK P3.[citation needed]
