Nashville, TN (July 26, 2019)
Christian rock band Random Hero are set to drop Tension, their highly anticipated RockFest Records debut, August 23. Produced by Memphis May Fire‘s Kellen McGregor, Tension is the band’s most melodic, hook-laden release to date, providing a musical foundation squarely focused on elevating Random Hero’s urgent message of hope and healing.
Featuring 10 songs written by Random Hero, including six co-penned with McGregor and four tracks co-written by Disciple’s Josiah Prince, the project’s title-cut and forthcoming debut single serves as the album’s thematic cornerstone. “Tension,” a deeply personal song chronicling a season of change and growth for the band, offers encouragement for listeners navigating life’s unavoidable obstacles.

Further highlights of Tension include the explosive “Weight Of The World,” a cautionary tale of the pitfalls of taking on too much responsibility alone, and the equally hard-driving “Public Enemy,” which touts the virtues of a countercultural life—doing the right thing no matter the consequence. Additionally, the cinematic “White Flag” is a soaring anthem of absolute submission to God, drawing Tension to a fitting close.
Showcasing the softer side of Random Hero is “So Close,” a love song from the band to their wives, as well as the reflective “Outgrown.” Written from the group’s perspective as fathers, the latter track ultimately explores the greater picture of God’s heart for His children.
