Hell is For Heroes are back. Like, really back.

After calling it a day in 2008, and then returning for a handful of shows in 2018, the heroes of early British rock have shared their first new music in 15 years.

And it is absolutely ace.

It is a free-flowing, atmospheric, rousing piece of heart-on-sleeve brilliance that ripples with the energy and electricity that made the band such a mainstay. It’s as much a return to their roots as it is a look to the future, and it is all ever so exciting.

Vocalist Justin Schlosberg had this to say about it:

But making music with friends is still a special kind of fun just as it always was, and we can’t wait to play them live (as well as the old songs). Not to oversell it, but we’re reasonably certain the forthcoming tour with Hundred Reasons and My Vitriol will be beyond epic.” 

And here it is:

And just because, here’s a classic:

As Justin said, the band will be hitting the road with Hundred Reasons and My Vitriol next year.
