HEREFORTHEROSES - Sound In The Signals Interview

Marc Lehmann

I recently had the opportunity to interview HEREFORTHEROSES. We discussed taking chances and not letting failure define someone, the writing and recording process for new song, “Criminal”, plans for 2022, and more. Check it out below.

Can you tell me how you formed the project for those who may be unfamiliar? How did you initially become interested in music?

I started learning the piano at 6. I became obsessed with classical music. Until I was 15, then everything started leaking in.

After I got extremely screwed over by some people in the music industry. I was seconds away from quitting. I called a friend and scheduled some studio time. I almost canceled the flight the day of. Even though I couldn’t take another failure, I didn’t want my failures to define me. So I took the flight. After that, we made some random punk music. And the rest is history.

Your previous EP had more of a pop sound while you’ve incorporated more punk elements in your last few singles. What made you want to move in that direction?

Like I said. I got screwed over and taken advantage of by some people in this industry. They almost bankrupt me. I still have a love for all genres. However, the switch to punk was a long needed release of pent up energy.

Your new song “Criminal” is reminiscent of Green Day’s song “Brain Stew”. What about it inspired you to pay homage to that song? What was the writing and recording process like for “Criminal”?

Yeah. We were in the studio one day and my producer was playing the riff. And I started singing some random shit. It sounded good so we ran with it. Look, in this industry everyone copies from everyone. So instead of hiding it and pretending it never happens like 90% of artists out there. We just decided to leave it as an interpolation and pay homage to Green Day. They’re dope and we all listened to them growing up.

What’s coming up for you in 2022?

I’d like to thank everyone who’s been rocking with me! We have great things planned for the new year! I wanna explore more genres and get more creative. I’ve been working with some people on some new shit. I wanna go back to the sound I had in my head before I was taken advantage of. Not to say that I won’t do punk also. I just don’t like the idea of being tied down to something for the rest of time. I like having the ultimate freedom to go where my creativity takes me.
