House of Heroes' new album "Cold Hard Want" is a rock and roll treat from beginning to end. Packed with fast paced rhythms, blazing guitar riffs, and gigantic hooks. Lead singer Tim Skipper belts out some mind blowing vocals that set the feel for this project. In our recent interview with Tim he admitted that the group was originally going for more of a pop flavor but quickly realized “This record is going to be a rock record and we just need to embrace that and go for it”. I'm glad they did. This is flat out no holds barred rock and roll at its best.

"Cold Hard Want" covers every end lyrically. With songs like "The Cop" it's tender, while songs like "Comfort Trap" it's gritty with lines like "I'll have my cake and eat it too / And what I don't eat I'll force feed you". Another standout track is "Dance (Blow It All Away)" which really showcases Tim's powerful vocal range. Touches of "Suburba" remain in songs such as "We Were Giants" and "Remember The Empire". The lyrics are clever and catchy in typical House of Heroes fashion which makes the album a joy to listen to over and over.

This truely is a flawless release and one of the best albums of 2012 (amazing considering they tracked the entire album in only fifteen days). House of Heroes is consistently good and they have done it again with this latest project. "Cold Hard Want" is this Summer's must get album.
