Vocalist AJ Channer says, "This album is the personal narrative of a minority man living in major cities and being American," he explains. "There's a socio-economic theme throughout the whole record that carries from each song to song. It's all about the underdog. We've all had to fight for everything we have in this band. The political climate in our country is quite racially and socially charged. There are a lot of issues and energy people are expressing along with misguided hate and anger. I want to channel this in music that can resonate. This is where we come from and who we are as a band."

In order to properly capture this vision, the boys retreated to House of Loud Studios in New Jersey to record with David Bendeth (Paramore, Of Mice & Men, Breaking Benjamin). They spent a month in the winter of 2016 tracking what would become Narrative. "There's no crying in Bendeth's dojo," laughs AJ. "He really pushed us, and we grew in a short period of time. The band takes on a life of its own with this record."

"I want people to feel empowered when they listen to this record," AJ leaves off. "Come out of the experience knowing somebody thinks like you. You're not alone."

Narrative track listing:

01. Public Enemy
02. End Transmission
03. Excuse Me
04. Composition
05. Evolve
06. Pretenders
07. Diversion
08. In Spite Of Doubt
09. Lifeline
10. Into The Blue

This isn't bad. Seems to have some Twelve Tribes influence.

Definitely some twelve tribes influence, him and adam jackson are tight. Same goes for Candiria and Carley. the vocalist was born in Jamaica and lived half of his life in London before moving to New York...tons of influences here. The track is a banger because he actually has bars unlike literally anyone else who has ever tried to rap over anything metal oriented.

12 tribes sucked and so does this band

^^^^^^

Quit dck-riding. This band barely draws 100 people when it plays at the Dirty Dog. Fire From the Gods isn't even one of Austin's top tier bands. Insvrgence and DSGNS both outdraw Fire From the Gods.Not sure what Rise Records was thinking here. This band is very good at the showbiz thing, though...

dckriding? By sayin 12 tribes sucked and so does this band? Your dads boyfriend (his dad) gives him the ol' dirty dog every night, gives him the 'showbiz' in the morning, and your pounding the walls and caterwauls for it all to stop is like fire from the gods

I'm not, I do reps of 140 on the bench 3 set of 10, + 2 until failure, you do the bar with a 10 lb plate on each side and THAT IS YOUR MAX

So basically, the album is about being a sage?

Who is the new vocalist now? You know, since that unfortunate incident in Baton Rouge.

Stuck Mojo did it. POD did it. Candiria did it. Dub War/Skindred did it. RATM did it. Stop saying bands are original, they aren't. Someone will have done anything any band has done before now. It's 2016, not 1996.
