Volumes surprise release new EP

Official press release: Los Angeles quintet Volumes — Myke Terry (vocals), Gus Farias (vocals), Diego Farias (guitar), Raad Soudani (bass), and Nick Usich (drums) — are primed to set heavy music ablaze in 2019 with their Coming Clean EP, along with an upcoming fourth full-length for Fearless Records. Listen to Coming Clean here: Following a successful headline tour and run alongside Born of Osiris, Volumes devoted nearly eight months to piecing together their next musical chapter. They recorded throughout Southern California, working out of Butter Studios in Venice, West Alley Recording Studios, and Farias Productions. Self-producing and keeping everything "in-house and organic," they enlisted Kyle Black (Pierce the Veil, New Found Glory) and Max Schad (Veil of Maya) for an additional perspective. Ultimately, Coming Clean represents a moment of clarity both personally and artistically. "Some of us have struggled with depression or drug issues," admits Soudani. "We've battled those demons personally and together and found a nice stability and substance. At the same time, we're coming clean with ourselves. We're men now. Life is more precious. The music reflects this honest idea of opening up." Volumes introduce this era with the bludgeoning banger "No Love" (featuring Fronzilla) and it's Volumes' heaviest declaration yet with an uncanny assist by the Attila frontman and longtime friend. "It speaks on the idea of how we've come from the bottom and the dirt, but we've been here a long time, so you're going to have to show some respect," Soudani states. "We know where we stand. We're asserting our identity. We've found ourselves and know what we're doing." Elsewhere, "Alive" slips between the cracks of caustic guitars and punishing growls into a soaring clean refrain, "Am I alive?" Then, there's "Until the End." Evocative of what Soudani calls "the original Volumes sound," it illuminates the dynamic range of their attack, seesawing back and forth from a visceral vocal volley into a harmonic reprieve. "Coming Clean is an emotional moment for us," Soudani says. "I hope you feel something when you hear it and gain some perspective. This is Volumes. Coming Clean hints at where we're headed in the future." Coming Clean track listing: 1. No Love 2. Hello Goodbye 3. Alive 4. Revenant 5. Until The End 6. Coming Clean

"Some of us have struggled with depression or drug issues," admits Soudani. No, you haven't. F.uck you.

It should be a felony to create any song featuring Fronz.

anonymous 4/24/2019 10:15:23 AM

"you're going to have to show some respect" lmao. The only people that respect this band have face tattoos and drink Four Loco

anonymous 4/24/2019 2:07:59 PM

anonymous 4/24/2019 2:29:34 PM

"It speaks on the idea of how we've come from the bottom and the dirt, but we've been here a long time, so you're going to have to show some respect," Soudani states. https://www.linkedin.com/i n/gustavo-farias-1b405120/ Above is the LinkedIn for Grammy Award winning producer Gustavo Farias, father of Diego Farias and the owner of Farias Productions, who has supported them from the beginning. That is "the bottom and the dirt" they're telling us commands respect, I guess?

"DOING FEATURES $$$ 2 SPOTS AVAILABLE SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY BE CASHAPP OR PAY PAL READY - 3:28 AM - 24 Apr 2019" - Gus Farias https://metalinjection.net /latest-news/volumes-is-re funding-fans-after-vocalis t-gus-farias-never-deliver ed-on-guest-spots So, if they're "coming clean", are the people that are going to respond to his tweet from THIS MORNING just gonna be warned in advance that he's going to steal their money...?

still using the same riff\guitar "technique" since 2011 i see. maybe if you had a second guitarist instead of a laptop, you'd have more variety

missed a perfectly good gimmick opportunity of calling each release "Volume 1" "Volume 2" "Volume 2.5" etc...


anonymous 4/26/2019 4:36:20 PM

A "surprise" like all the thots waking up after Coachella with scabby undercarriages. Please stop. Relevancy ended around 2013


anonymous 4/30/2019 8:23:43 AM

Myke's vocals make everyone be like, "Gus who?" Seeing them live for the first time, you'd never think Myke isn't the main singer. He sings and screams waaaaay better. And respect is earned, not given automatically you daft c*nt.


anonymous 4/30/2019 8:24:39 AM

2003 called, they want their album art back.
