from the album UGLY HEROES, in stores 5/28:


About the album:
An Ugly Hero is considered a myth. Growing up, the heroes we saw in cartoons and movies were perfectly chiseled, intelligent, and had senses none of us possess. An UGLY HERO is the everyday blue collar individual that makes the world go 'round. These are the heroes that work hard all day, everyday to help ensure that the lives around them are taken care of, and do it all without recognition. They wear themselves into the ground and sacrifice vanity for family.

Apollo Brown, Verbal Kent, and Red Pill are UGLY HEROES.

Red Pill's Lyrics:

"Now I was sitting in my car, chain smoking on my break

Windows open start to notice that I'm hopeless everyday

Between the hard drinking and the smoking

Start thinking about the folks who gotta do this till their graves

You can't afford to walk up off the job

You gotta get your money and your money is your god

So now at least seven days a week, you see my trading in my soul for somebody to keep

Whole parking lot smells like weed

Coworkers selling coke out of their SUVs

When you can't afford to live off the wages that they give

Can't afford to feed your kids, time to do some other shit

These situations got them faced with different combinations

Plus they lock them up in a safe, shit...

We need to find a way out, need a new escape route

We're digging up our graves now


So where you trying to go? Gotta dig them up

You're moving too slow, better pick it up

They break us on down till we're giving up

Put us in the motherfucking ground

They don't give a fuck

And when it's us they ain't giving much

And when it's them they don't get enough

Look them in their face middle finger up

They're trying to put us in our graves
