Random Hero 2019

Today, HM is proud to premiere the latest music video from Random Hero for “Tension.” The song, rooted in humans’ day-to-day life stretched among responsibilities to self and among living in the common populace, is the eponymous track from their latest album released a month ago in August.

We spoke to Random Hero vocalist Aaron Watkins about the music video:

“Our goal with the ‘Tension’ video was to symbolize the perspective of a person who is being pulled in two different directions at once. We wanted to use imagery to paint the picture of the intense emotional strain so many people feel today.”

The band, formed in Denver over ten years ago, has frequently made Christian rock singles’ charts and occasionally dotting Top 30 mainstream rock charts. Tension is the band’s fourth full-length release.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
