L.A. progressive metalcore crew Volumes — comprised of vocalists Myke Terry and Gus Farias, guitarist Diego Farias, bass player Raad Soudani and drummer Nick Usich — have dropped a crushing new six-song EP, Coming Clean, ahead of their upcoming fourth full-length, due later this year via Fearless Records.
“Some of us have struggled with depression or drug issues,” Soudani said of the theme of Coming Clean, which is available for purchase here and can be streamed on your favorite digital streaming service. “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.”
The EP kicks off with the burly, bruising “NO LOVE,” which features guest vocals from Volumes’ longtime friend, Fronzilla, frontman of the polarizing deathcore group Attila. “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 explained of the lead-off cut. “We know where we stand. We’re asserting our identity. We’ve found ourselves and know what we’re doing.”
“Coming Clean is an emotional moment for us,” Soudani added. “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.” Hear the EP below. Volume currently have one 2019 show on their schedule: July 19th at Rock USA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
