"This album is about the good, the bad and finding a moment of clarity, energy or euphoria in either" says For Our Hero front man Jay Taplin. For Our Hero have unveiled their highly anticipated first full-length record STRANGE DAYS, which rocketed to 2 on the iTunes rock charts to earn a 3 spot on Australia's Independent AIR Charts. After receiving national airplay on stations including the 2day Network & Triple M, and having already toured with well known national and international artists such as Short Stack, Amy Meredith and 3OH!3 to name a few, For Our Hero have returned onto the scene and are ready to embark on their national headline tour in support of their full length release.
I listened to the new For Our Hero album about 3 times through now, and can honestly say, Im so proud of those boys. (Its a) Whole new level. Shaun Diviney of Short Stack tweeted after he was sent an early copy of the album.
"For me, working with For Our Hero was almost boring - all I had to do was press record and take the credit. The songs these guys write speak for themselves. It's refreshing to work with a modern pop band pushing lyrical boundaries in an almost Shakespearian way. You won't find clichs here - you'll be taken on a journey" Michael Paynter, gold record certified artist and producer of the bands latest single Like Clockwork.
The songs on STRANGE DAYS were produced by a line up of big and exciting talent including gold record producer Paul Leavitt from Baltimore-USA (All Time Low, The Dangerous Summer, Versa Emerge), respected artist Michael Paynter & colleague Michael Delorenzis, and finally long time friend and collaborator Daniel Kelaart at Grafete Studios.
"I actually really like it. It's like super different, its got that edge" says Sophie Monk while co-hosting the Hot-30 countdown "I didn't really believe it was from Australia".
Prior to supporting Yellowcard this September, the band is hitting Australia's capital cities this July. Things are about to get a little stranger.
