POZ Review: Heroes For Hire - No Apologies

by Zack Zarrillo - Dec 19, 2012

In the past 11+ months, such notable acts as Yellowcard, All Time Low, Title Fight, and countless others have released new music. Unfortunately, it is for this precise reason that lesser known bands like Australia’s Heroes For Hire have gone relatively unnoticed. The band’s latest album, No Apologies, which came out in late September, is well written and catchy, but falls flat in terms of originality. And though the album is a fun listen, there is little about it that makes it stand out from the rest of the genre. 

No Apologies opens on a high note, the volatile and engaging “Rip Out My Guts.” Vocalist Brad Smith sounds like a less practiced version of Hit The Lights’ Nick Thompson, but it works, especially over the dynamic guitar melodies that weave their way in and out of the pre-choruses. Smith laments sticking around in a relationship that never worked in the first place: “Been selling myself short for too long/Still beating myself up from the start.”

As the album moves along, it’s hard to pick up on specific tracks as standouts because there’s little variety and everything pretty much flows together. However, on a closer listen it becomes easier to latch onto some of the more impressive moments that occur throughout: rich harmonies on “Set In Stones”, a brief and weighty bass solo towards the end of “Off With Their Heads”, an unexpected acoustic melody in the bridge of “We’re Only Just Getting Started,” and the strangely Man Overboard-esque “Weigh Me Down”.
