Heroes For Hire vocalist Brad Smith has left the band. Guitarist Duane Hazell is stepping up as frontman. A lengthy statement from Hazell can be found below.
This will be the first and last thing I am going to say about everything that's going on right now regarding Heroes For Hire. To everyone saying that there are no original members left in Heroes For Hire and that we are just using the band name to promote a completely new band: I can't even remember how many years ago it was exactly that I joined Heroes For Hire, but if I had to guess, I'd say it was about 5 or 6 years ago. Before I officially joined, I was filling in on bass guitar at a few small local shows due to their...
Rise is great. I mean, we've had them do more for us in the one year we've been signed to them than the other labels have done in the other 6 years we've been signed. They're really personable, they're literally a phone call away, as opposed to going through all these different channels just to talk to your own record label. They treat us like human beings, you know?

Since this has been submitted by a ton of you, I thought I'd post it. Someone decided to mash-up Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like a Hole" with Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe." The end result is "Call Me a Hole," which you can stream in the replies.
When Aaron Marsh puts his stamp of approval on a project, that's when you know you should pay attention. In the case of Chicago's Valaska, the moniker for the Windy City's Dave Valdez, you should get to know this guy...and fast. Channeling the likes of Analog Rebellion, Sleeping At Last, and Deas Vail, Valaska brings a ukelele and electronic laden track that's got lots of different feels to it. Listen to the single "Golden Age" on his AP.net profile or listen in the replies.

KD: Well theyíre notÖ The Jesse one is a rock record and itís like a ROCK record. More than anything Iíve ever worked on so far.
AH: Yeah itís bloodthirsty. Sick. It is. Iíve only heard really bad sounding demos, but itís a version of Kevin. Itís a version of him thatís kind of this punky, bloodthirsty, loud rock thing. And you can hear the Jesse influence. Thereís this section that goes to half time in one of these songs that I really like. It was totally a momment...
