Formed in 2009 when members from 2 bands merged together to write new music diverting from their usual styles, Suffolk band Never A Hero has seen a few personnel changes throughout the years but is now flourishing under this latest line up. After receiving critical acclaim for their debut album along with good radio support and plays on Kerrang and Scuzz TV on their videos, the guys headed to the studio in 2014 and are now ready to release their second full offering, UNEVOLUTION. 

Never a Hero


Blending their love of hard rock, alternative and electronic with a passion to produce something a little bit different, Never A Hero have come up with a cracking selection of songs, diverse, direct and stomping over the norm. From the crunching guitars of Mr Munchausen to the ridiculously catchy choruses of Nightboy & cranking up the pace on It’s The Way, these guys have come up with a stormer!

“UnEvolution is a multifaceted melodrama of affirmation, angst and dark romance. Dramatic strings, poignant piano interludes and epic stormy guitars come together to convey some cleverly imagined themes delivered with plenty of cinematic drama and sexual tension. Let’s just say there are moments of blockbuster potential”
Toxic Online
“Motivational, life affirming and kick arse rock created with a passion for creating interesting music – this is perfect stuff”
“Bands with vast diversity are the most exciting and potentially important bands in music, and that part of Never A Hero makes a good album a great offering”
