Track Review: Hero’s Welcome // Shanghai Treason
Shanghai Treason craft banger after banger. Their mix of hillbilly country and punk rock has turned many heads. It’s an awesome amalgamation of genres, and they released ‘Hero’s Welcome’, a brand new track, last month.
‘Hero’s Welcome’ tells the true story of one of the band’s great grandfathers who escaped a Prisoner of War camp in WWII. The song is quite haunting in its lyrics because they tell the vivid story of how he escaped and the trauma involved. “He had a bleed on the brain for the rest of his life.”
This is the type of song that will go well in a live setting. You will be able to sing this after a few beers and belt it out with all your might. It’s a touching song and shows Shanghai Treason’s versatility.
