"Tension," the latest single from fan-favorite rockers Random Hero, is currently the #1 Christian rock song in the country, according to Christian Music Weekly's January 8 Rock chart. The title-cut and lead single from the band’s 2019 RockFest Records debut, "Tension" chronicles a season of change for the group while offering encouragement for those navigating life’s unavoidable obstacles.
Many years over the past decade, it has been a struggle to find enough albums to round out a satisfying end-of-year list. 2019 bucked that trend in a powerful way, offering up a wide range of outstanding albums in every sub-genre of rock and metal.
Last week, Random Hero officially announced the addition of guitarist Micah Labrosse.

Random Hero navigates these tracks musically as one tight unit, each song hitting every mark it aims for. Lyrically, there's an honesty that has always been a Random Hero hallmark. If you're trying to learn how to live in the tension, to find peace, to hold onto hope-- Tension reassures you that you're not alone, and you've got songs to walk with you until you reach the other side.
