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.
