Songfacts®:

  • Many songs have used a "hero" theme, but this one is a little different, dealing with those who search for peace through war. The band issued a statement explaining: "'Never The Heroes' is about the courageous men and women that enter war - never trained to be heroes but becoming heroic due to their actions and sacrifices doing their duty for their people and country. It resonates as there is a hero in all of us and in times of struggle we can be strong and united - conquering our own challenges and helping others - it's a traditional Priest mid-tempo powerhouse, with a powerful message!"
