Singled Out: No Place For Heroes

Today Will Maurer from No Place For Heroes tells us about their new single, "Girls Want Bad Boys," which the band is offering as a free download! Here is the story:

We recorded this song during January 2012 in Paris. The point was to get back to the basics and we wanted to introduce our slightly more 'rock' sound that was also based around an electronic music format. The recording was done with the same team as the first album and we tried some new things with our sound, introduced new effects, and the end result is a good preview of what's to come.

The story behind the lyrics is basically tragicomical. It's about a guy who is so obsessed with impressing a girl that he finds himself in a ridiculous situation, being chased by the police after having robbed a bank, just because girls want "bad boys". It's based on a true story that took place in 2011 in the US. A man had robbed a bank in order to spoil his girlfriend and got 5 years in prison. The writing process for the lyrics was redone 3 or 4 times, and we finished the final version the night before the recording in a little Parisian apartment at 2 in the morning... I guess it was the most rock'n'roll version thanks to those conditions!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and grab the free download right here and you can learn more about the band here.
