Facing the Past: David Kushner Releases “Hero” and Announces Tour

1 min read

Singer-songwriter David Kushner unveils a deeply personal track, “Hero,” alongside an introspective music video. The song, released via Miserable Man Music, explores the complexities of relationships and overcoming past hurts.

“Hero” delves into the idea of accepting the pain of our younger selves, Kushner explains. “It acknowledges that relationships change over time, leaving behind different perspectives on who the heroes and villains might be.”

The track is a raw reflection on a universal truth, resonating with anyone who has experienced the evolution of bonds. It transforms personal struggles into a relatable anthem, capturing the emotions of watching connections shift.

The accompanying music video, filmed in Kushner’s signature cinematic style, further expands on the song’s themes. It portrays him interacting with younger versions of himself, reliving childhood trauma. Through this interaction, David Kushner seems to achieve a sense of reconciliation with the past experiences that shaped him. The video underscores the idea that while we carry fragments of our childhood selves within us, they do not define who we are now.

This emotional exploration extends to Kushner’s upcoming North American tour. Kicking off September 9th in Portland, Oregon, and wrapping up on November 23rd in Oakland, California, the tour allows fans to experience his music live. Tickets go on sale to the public on May 17th.

Before embarking on the tour, Kushner will be performing at several major festivals, including Boston Calling, Bonnaroo, and the iconic Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK. For a complete list of tour dates and ticketing information, visit David Kushner’s website.
