On Sunday, April 28th, local alt-rock legends, The Town Heroes, are going acoustic for a night at The Carleton starting at 7pm. Advanced tickets are $15 or you can pay $20 at the door.
They’ve toured the world, released three critically acclaimed albums and won an array of industry awards. Anthemic choruses, 3-part harmonies, tender falsettos and big drums highlight their riff driven, dirty-yet-nuanced barrage of sound. On stage they move like intense caricatures – soaked in sweat, pushing every chord, note and beat to the limit. A structured wall of sound emerges; familiar yet distinctive. Camaraderie shows in their musicianship, their songwriting highlights what they are: friends playing music for the love of it, in it for the long haul.
Musically, TTH are reminiscent of the 90’s Alt-Rock bands they grew up listening to. Lyrically, at the root of every song is a passionate exploration of the things that make us all human. Whether good or bad, they’re the things that make us who we are: heartache, longing, society in the modern age, dreams and family.
Everything (will be fine when we get to where we think we’re going) will be the band’s 4th full length release and first with the 4 members. Merging modern pop-sensibilities with their alt-rock influences, the band has crafted 11 beautifully hook laden tracks oozing with hit potential. There’s a maturity in the album, both musically and conceptually – a growth that can only happen through a dedication to their craft, through hundreds of live shows around the world and an unrelenting belief in what they’re doing. The album is simultaneously fun and thought provoking, danceable arrangements coupled with contemplative self awareness and social conscience. At heart, a perfect soundtrack for contemplating life with a bounce in your step.
