St.Louis, Missouri, metalcore outfit TEAR OUT THE HEART has announced that their forthcoming debut album will be titled Violence, out March 19th. Listen to a clip of “Infamous Last Words” and pre-order your copy today through the Victory Records’ webstore!
Upon inking deal with Victory Records in August 2012, TEAR OUT THE HEART began writing what would become one of the most dynamic, powerful releases of 2013. Utilizing vocalist Tyler Konersman’s all encompassing range,Violence boasts unrivaled clean singing alongside screams that are in a class of their own. “It’s a record about deception and revenge. It’s about self enlightenment and growing into a much stronger, more receptive version of your previous self. Violence is about no one being in your corner when times are at their hardest, who still want to celebrate with you at the end of the day as if they had a part in your success.”, comments Konersman.
Complete with hauntingly catchy choruses and melodies that will shock and surprise you, Violence will be stuck in your head in the best way. Konersman continues, “I realize this is terribly cliché, but it is easily the heaviest, most melodic record we have ever written; orchestrated both maturely and tastefully. Like it or not, this album is going to take over the world.”
With standouts like “Infamous Last Words”, it is clear that producer Caleb Shomo formerly of Attack! Attack!, has taken a very special interest in St. Louis’ TEAR OUT THE HEART and their aggressive delivery. AOL’s NOISECREEP had this to say upon first listen, “Violence is teeming with soaring choruses, neck-snapping breakdowns and doomsday-kissed guitars. Don’t be surprised if you see these guys headlining over some of their heroes soon.”
