This band has no press


The band likes to make music for people to connect with. Most of their songs have spacey chill vibes to them but are coated in punk and alternative.

Daze & Nightz is the debut album from the Unsung Heroes. The record contains 20 tracks and is filled with a variety of different songs. There are songs that are fast, driven, and contain a lot of punch. The rest of the songs are more relaxed and are nice to chill out and listen to. Genres such as alternative, punk rock, and acoustic are all compacted into this one album. Spacey vibes are heard throughout the record in songs like The Way I Want, Broken Destiny, Make Me Feel Complete, and more!

The storyline behind the songs relate to what most teenagers and young adults go through when they claim their independence and begin their journey to discover who they are. The songs throughout the album have several different emotions that people can relate to. For instance, feeling broken after a break up, struggling with addiction and fighting it, moving on from the past, not knowing one's self, coping with pain, standing for what one believes in, and opening your eyes and mind to the possibilities behind the reality that humans know.

Daze & Nightz is available on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, iHeartRadio, Google Play, Amazon, and other streaming services.
