San Marcos-based rock band Heroes Die Young are looking to make an impact in the vibrant central Texas music scene the old-fashioned way : strong songwriting, old school promotion and (hopefully one day soon) live performances for new and old fans. Their latest (and seventh) single, Painful Truth, is a new take on the ballad, eschewing the call for the best parts of a significant other and instead opting for any and all truths. The high energy soundtrack matches the urgency and nervous nature the lyrics lay out perfectly. Don’t be surprised if a song like this one gets the music video treatment at some point. In the meantime, like the song, leave a comment if you dig it, and share it around for all to enjoy!

Songwriting can sometimes become a delicate balance between dangerous adventuring outside of your comfort zone and falling into a predictive rut. It seems like recently, Heroes Die Young found themselves somewhere in the middle of this realm, as the self-admitted punk and alternative band dipped their toes into the waters of swing via their latest single, Hey There Honey. The group has always had an appreciation for musical diversity, which keeps their songs from sounding repetitive, but the playful energy at the beginning of Hey There Honey gives it a unique life and bounce… this song definitely would lend itself to a music video, if the group ever chose to create one. Check out the track, share it around for others to enjoy, and support your local creatives!
