All Poets & Heroes latest tune “Life on the Line” is the story is about someone who has taken their own life. The actual character of the story has already passed away. The narrator of the song is the rational part of the brain of this person getting the last say.
You see, when you have these suicidal thoughts, there are two voices at war, the rational part and the irrational part. The irrational side takes control and is normally louder and drowns out the rational. So, this song is about the rational side of the brain saying, “I was trying to find you. I was trying to cut through the noise. Now that you’ve made this decision, we’re all bound to the same fate.”
However, the song ends with hope. Hope for those who are still fighting. The end of the song is telling people to wait, just slow down – telling them not to make that mistake, to find a way to push through and live on.
In the summer of 2015, Rob McCall & Corey Jordan met and founded All Poets & Heroes out of their hometown of Syracuse, NY. That summer, the duo began crafting a sound that explored resonating folk melodies with that of the sensible nostalgia that filled the 90s alternative music scene. Since then, the duo has grown into a full-fledged band developing towards an introspective project that aims to challenge listeners to feel, and to feel deeply. The band is gearing up to release its follow-up album to 2017’s EP, “Where We Lived and What We Lived For” with the lead single, “Life on the Line” to be released on April 12th, 2019. All Poets & Heroes produces music that exposes hurt, longing, and grief and turns those feelings into love, connection, and hope.
