WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT "NOTHING HERE IS PERFECT":
"Movies With Heroes write their synth-accented, big-chorused pop-rock anthems with the sense of urgency one only gets from having a foot in punk rock... At once delicate and aggresive, uplifting and totally depressing, Nothing Here is Perfect changes moods like the Warped Tour changes headliners. Incidentally, we see no reason MWH shouldn't be ruling Warped nation in a few years, unless U2 hires 'em to open first.
"The songs are so well-written, it doesn't matter what genre of music you appreciate. The melodies are catchy, the harmonies are about as perfect as you can get. Co-vocalists Keith Wilson and Jeff Royer are, and this is not an exaggeration, two of the best in all of rock today."
"There is not a bad song on here. I cant wait to see what this band can accomplish behind an album as strong as this one. A must-have for anyone that dares to say they like rock music."
"While they may not currently be the it band of the moment, they should be, and that moment should last for an incredibly long time."
"Absolutely magical!!! The tunes are emotive, strong, and full of passion The music is edgy, soothing, hopeful, and heartbreaking all at the same time."
"With the release of Nothing Here is Perfect Movies with Heroes could easily become a household name."
"Movies With Heroes, much like Jimmy Eat World, and Acceptance, have the ability to write pop hooks that are bigger than you might be able to handle." -Wrankmusic
"Movies With Heroes is a brilliantly accomplished band writing smart, catchy songs that remain eminently listenable. We're talking major chords, big hooks, clever melodies and sparkling arrangements that can only be made by musicians with a true gift."
"Unbelievable. Keep your eyes peeled for these guys to quite possibly become the next Fall Out Boy."
"One of the most exciting and honest bands recording today. This album is a must-have to anyone who calls themselves a fan of true rock."
"Nothing Here Is Perfect is a flat-out great album. Not just occasionally, but just about every song features a memorable, singable, enjoyable, eye-opening chorus."
"this outfit manages to soar beyond the laymen-given emo moniker, injecting staggering amounts of soul into their songs...Emblazoned with intriguing compositions, an irresistible vocal delivery that lures you in like a stranger with candy, and a musical cohesion that is downright frightening...this is one that fans of everything from Cursive to Coheed and Cambria should wholeheartedly agree on."
"This album makes you want to go out with your friends, have some drinks, turn up the radio and drive fast. 'Nothing' is a single that could be playing on the radio today."
"Nothing Here Is Perfect is strong from start to finish, with amazing musicianship, rivaling anyone else who has ever played melodic rock and roll."
-Indie Vision Music
"A thoroughly enjoyable listen ... the album appeases those who appreciate the fragile sounds of indie rock as well as those who crave the harder rock and roll edge."
-The Pitt News
"The anthemic songs on the new release are shot full of rock, yet still catchy enough to be categorized as pop."
-South Bend Tribune
"An enchanting, beautiful delight for the ear...a sound that forbids you to hit the stop button."
"Really, really good. My favorite is 'Wake Up'; it sounds like a grittier version of an early Cure song."
"An enticing musical ride. Just listen to the band's intricate melodies and forceful yet thoughtful lyrics."
-The NC Mountaineer
As the old cliché goes, there are two sides to every story, and the music of Lancaster PA’s MOVIES WITH HEROES is no exception.
For MOVIES, five years of indie-touring, self-released records, and uncompromising live shows culminate with the release of their national debut, Nothing Here is Perfect, followed up by a very successful European tour covering 10 countries in support of Fields Forever (featuring Jon Bunch of Sense Field and Further Seems Forever). The album, an overpowering blend of the ferocious and the fragile, manages to deliver on two fronts, simultaneously rocking both melodically and methodically.
On one hand, you have the cerebral lyrics, the delicately deliberate arrangements, and the intricately structured melodies. It’s music from the brain, plotted-out with the uncanny precision.
On the other hand, you have the sound of something visceral and fierce. This is the sound of five grown men going for broke. The sound of five lifetimes worth of passion being distilled into a single powerful presentation. It’s music from the heart, brimming over with sincerity and ardor.
Produced and recorded by the members of MOVIES WITH HEROES and mixed by Ed Rose (THE GET UP KIDS, REGGIE AND THE FULL EFFECT), Nothing Here Is Perfect is a kaleidoscopic romp through the annals of arena rock. From the riotous march of “Wake Up” to the black-and-blue groove of “Nothing” to the anthemic pop of “Wildflower,” the band shows in the full spectrum of colors how years of struggle, sacrifice and angst can blossom into a sound full of purpose and drive.
Since solidifying in 2000, the band has shared stages across the US, Canada, and Europe with the likes of COHEED AND CAMBRIA, DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL, CURSIVE, THE PROMISE RING, RAINER MARIA, and more. Now in partnership with CI Records, MOVIES WITH HEROES is poised to make an impact on a national front as one of the most excitingly honest and emotive bands to emerge from the independent music scene. MWH is returning to Europe in May this time with their album slated for a pan-european release on April 20 (Rude Records) with glowing press rolling in from Italy, Holland, and the UK.
Like a working class COLDPLAY, or the FOO FIGHTERS with a doctorate, MOVIES WITH HEROES walks a fine line between the two sides of their story, finding something beautiful in the delicate, albeit tense, balance between them.
