CD Review: House of Heroes Visits "Suburba"

Alternative rockers House of Heroes are back with their fourth album entitled "Suburba." The album was released on Gotee Records back in August where it entered the Billboard album charts at #48, a new high for the band.

The new album grows on House of Heroes' blend of alternative rock sound with strong positive lyrics. The album begins with the late 70's-style synthesizer heavy rocker "Relentless." While the band does not consider themselves a Christian Rock band, their strong Christian beliefs and lyrics in songs like "Love Is For The Middle Class" and "God Save The Foolish Kings" give them a moniker they can live with. The ballad "Salt In The Sea" finds the powerful harmonizing between band members that gives the song its strength. "Disappear" finds the band stretching their alternative rock sound. "Suburba" finishes strong with the positive song of hope in "Constant" and a song of faith in "Burn Me Down."

House of Heroes currently have dates scheduled at the end of October and beginning of November out on the west coast. For a complete list of tour dates and album information, please visit
