Everyday Heroes are a four piece band from Newport. We’ve been following their progress since seeing them take the crown at the Steelhouse 2016 Battle of the Bands competition in Fuel. At that time, they had prepared their self titled debut EP consisting of four epic tracks. It always felt however that something ethereal was missing.
Now, a year down the line, they’re back with “The Otherside of Nowhere”, a follow up five track EP that sounds very much like Everyday Heroes 2.0 and the band has found that missing something.
Probably one of the hardest working bands in South Wales, they seem to spend every weekend gigging somewhere in the Valleys and further afield. They recently lost out by the smallest of margins at the recent HRH Highway to Hell gig in Sheffield, but that doesn’t put a good band down, they are still up and rocking towards 2018.
The band’s influences are much in evidence in this EP. The Southern Rock sound of Black Stone Cherry is here. The vocals are deeper and harder. The energy in the songs seems to have been doubled. The boys are maturing into a fantastic rock band that could easily compliment the line up at Steelhouse and I’m not talking just the Friday opener.
