House of Heroes premieres a new music video today for the single ‘So Far Away’. The video features personal home movie footage taken over the years by the band.

“This is an interesting song because it can be applied so many different ways.  For the video we took the approach of telling the story of us as a band.  We’ve been making music together for half of our lives, and we’re still struggling a lot of times trying to do it.  The video shows the ups and downs of everything we’ve been through together.  It fits with the song because even though we are far from being rich and famous, we love what we do and the hope that we hold on to is that we can inspire people with our music.  Isaac Deitz was an obvious choice as a director for this video because he is a fantastic storyteller that we could trust telling our story because he has known us for so many years. Isaac had nearly 70 hours of footage to sift through when editing the video that we’re hoping to maybe someday turn into a documentary of sorts”  explains frontman Tim Skipper.

The band is also offering a free download of a ‘Suburba’ bonus track called  ‘The Voices Of Suburba’ now available at www.facebook.com/houseofheroes

“Our vocals have become quite a signature of our sound over the past few releases.  Specifically the old school way we stand around one mic together to do group harmonies.  Our producer Mark Lee Townsend took all of the group vocals we did on Suburba and created a “remix” of sorts to showcase the vocals”  explains Tim Skipper.

The band’s latest release SUBURBA has been met with critical acclaim, Alternative Press Magazine said “Suburba shows off what the masses have been missing: catchy pop songs with well-written lyrics. Suburba’s songs remain full of power while retaining the delicate touch of songwriting craftsmanship“ while HM deemed it a “Radiant sparkle and layers on chain-gang vocals and multiple harmonies” and Absolute Punk wrote “Tim Skipper has one of the best voices I’ve heard in a long, long time“.

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
