Yesterday’s Hero releases new music video for their song “Killing Me”

Releasing their debut album “Ways To Hate” this past November, Ohio alternative metal quintet Yesterday’s Hero has a new music video to share for their song “Killing Me”. The song was one of the first the band ever wrote and was originally featured as the title track of their debut 2021 EP. For the new album, it was re-recorded and selected as the opening title of the record to set its tone.

“Drive and groove is what you’ll get. Lyrically you will hear a man grasping the reality that the relationship is tearing him apart”. adds the band.

Yesterday’s Hero‘s first full-length “Ways To Hate” features seven hard-knocking tracks thattake listeners through the emotions of a struggling bleeding heart at the end of a tumultuous relationship. Musically, it’s a fusion of high-energy grooves with timeless melodies to get your blood pumping and moshing in the pit.

In a digital age of singles, Yesterday’s Hero went analog for this record as they would like those listening to experience each track finishing and ready for the next. The tracklisting was arranged in an order specifically to create a feel of an album experience, not just one single.

“We pride ourselves on using raw gritty tube amps, no backing tracks or plug-ins. There is no need for a laptop as we intentionally step back from today’s norm. What you hear on the record is what you’ll hear live, note for note. We have simple intentions along with catchy riffs with relatable lyrics. We want to give music fans a nostalgic taste for our music experience with a bit of new raw live sound.” says the band.

Having shared the stage with bands such as Escape the Fate, Powerman5000, The Convalescence, and Gemini Syndrome, among many others, Yesterday’s Hero is recommended for fans of Chevelle, Rise Against, Killswitch Engage, Godsmack, and Seether.
