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.
