heroes-for-hire-no-apologies

Posted by & filed under CD Reviews.

Still riding the punk-rock dream, Western Sydney-born Heroes for Hire are celebrating the release of their third album No Apologies, streaming full of unrelenting tight energy. With a 2012 CV that cites Soundwave, an Australian Tour and MTV feature artists alone, Heroes for Hire are spearheading home-grown punk talent. With an unapologetically brash yet a sleekly produced sound and cameos from the likes of Roger Lima (Less than Jake) and Jeff Todd (I Call Fives), No Apologies is riddled with infective hooks, a rapid-fire drumkit, and powerfully charged overlapping male vocals courtesy of Brad Smith and Duane Hazell. If you ever feel nostalgic for the solid sounds of Blink 182 or Yellowcard, give this album a spin!
