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.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
