Boy Becomes Hero Shares New Single "Flexibility"
Explaining the upcoming concept album, a prelude to 2019’s Reverie, Boy Becomes Hero shares with The Noise, “’Escape Artist’ is a story that follows Amatera (the antagonist from Reverie), a man who is lost in an ever changing mental state. His story begins at a breaking point for change, mislead by a corrupt leader, resulting in a devastating loss. Cast out to sea, Amatera finds himself captive by a Siren's song. With the help of Ninjen (Garret Rapp) and Ajna (Jonny Craig), our hero is able to heal and plan an overtaking of the Siren's ship in order to find restitution. The end of this album ties right into "Abstraction" from Reverie. A Deluxe Edition will be available next year with a few songs re-imagined from Reverie, where our characters from both albums' stories collide. Escape Artist is kind of a horror album; you'll really be able to hear that. It makes its way musically with our characters moving from dark to light. Jonathan Gearing jumping on board this time really steps things up a notch with the programming and Andreas Magnusson really killed it with the mix. There's a whole lot of Garret on here too. I can't wait for everyone to really dig into this.”
