House of Heroes to release SUBURBA produced by Mark Lee Townsend (Relient K, Deas Vail) and mixed by J.R. McNeely (The Almost, Paramore) tomorrow August 3 on Gotee Records.

SUBURBA is today’s Daily Deal on AmazonMP3.com for only $2.99 (http://amzn.to/hohsub).  Fans are able to download the album a day early through the Daily Deal, which also includes the exclusive bonus track “Galveston” only available on the AmazoMP3.com version.

So, what does one of the most ambitious records of 2010 sound like?  In many ways it is a time machine, harkening back to days when music was wide-eyed and meant a whole lot more.  Think classic Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, The Who, E.L.O. with a touch of Meatloaf.  That’s right, Meatloaf.  Who else could even attempt to pull of such a mixture than House of Heroes?  Yet, here it is…In one sense, it could fit in arenas.  And in another it is appropriate for the campfire.  Broad and anthemic at certain moments, yet vulnerable and intimate at others.  There are driving, heavy tracks, as well as emotional ballads.  Make no mistake, the band bled to attempt to make this record not just a soundtrack, but an experience.

The album will also be available at iTunes tomorrow and includes the exclusive bonus song “Patient” (http://bit.ly/hohITunes).

Look for the band to hit the road on the Monster Monster Tour with The Almost, Chasen and Between the Trees, which kicks off on September 14.

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
