Additionally, you can download a free mp3 for the song "Periphery" at the label's bandcamp page.
Recorded by Half Hearted Hero guitarist Clinton Lisboa and mastered by Jason Livermore at The Blasting Room (Rise Against, A Wilhelm Scream, Propagandhi), Running Water is the follow-up to the band's 2009 full-length, Defining. Refining. This latest effort finds the Massachusetts quintet blasting through six cuts of infectious and introspective pop punk while wielding a razor-sharp edge and reveling in a much grittier tone than its peers. With ample energy and hooks galore, Half Hearted Hero tips its proverbial cap to contemporaries such as Transit and The Starting Line, but it also explores varying tempos and unique song structures, giving nods to punk torchbearers such as Small Brown Bike and The Fullblast.
One last note - if you're anywhere near Massachusetts' South Coast this Friday, Half Hearted Hero will be playing its record release show at the Highlander in Acushnet. To see the flyer, go here.
