This time around we started writing some songs….even the Smoke EP when I listen to it now I go ‘Maaaan, we settled a lot on this’ even though we are really proud of it. Actually, some of my favorite songs we have ever written are on it. There were a lot of things where we relied on ‘Alright, we need a bridge here. What do we do well? Let’s do that.’ I think we wanted to break some of those molds moving forward, you know? We’re working with a producer on this record who has said as much. He said ‘You guys are being way too safe. You’ve been a band so long that you’ve kept the peace with each other by making...
If we make it to $41,000, we are OFFICIALLY printing The End is Not the End on vinyl for the FIRST TIME EVER!!! It will be offered at a discounted price to all contributors first, and then to the world at large. Let's get to it!!!
We want to make a true concept album. A story.
Often times we'd discuss how fun it would be to do this, but we never followed through for several reasons. Fear of total commercial failure, the grandiose scope of the whole thing, the fact that it's not the 70's anymore and it's hard enough to hold someones attention for one song, let alone an entire album. But we believe that we've found a group of fans that are craving this very thing from us, and we are now inviting you to join us as we move forward into the next chapter of House of Heroes.
House of Heroes played in Columbus last night, premiering about 5 new tracks that, according to the submitter: all sound amazing. You can see a clip of one of them here. Our news tipsters says, "The new songs are all pretty heavy, but have great poppy hooks to them. It looks like this might be they're best album yet. Also, Tim said that they will be releasing a new single and a b-side pretty soon, but the album won't be out for awhile."
House of Heroes have been in the studio working on their new album. Everyone I've talked to has said it is sounding like their best work yet. I asked the guys how they'd describe it, and they said, "Heaviest, poppiest, lightest, and rockingest songs we've ever done and somehow they fit together. Big emphasis on songwriting." So, I think they run the gamut on that one. Add that to my most anticipated of the year.
Today we're proud to bring you an exclusive stream of a brand new House of Fools song. The track, "Another Place," comes from the band's new album versus the beast. The new album sets into motion a fresh start for this North Carolina sextet. An early career - although bolstered by years of national touring - was plagued with label woes, but a legal victory ultimately released the band from all label ties. You can check out the new song in the replies, or on their AP.net profile. The new album comes out January 3rd.
House of Heroes have released a new video for their single "So Far Away", it's in the replies. There is also a new track available for download called, 'The Voices of Suburba', on their Facebook page. The track is a compilation of the group vocals that were recorded for Suburba.
