Joseph Izayea will release his new collaborative album Harder Truths on November 26, featuring Doc Coyle (Bad Wolves, ex-God Forbid), Kris Norris (ex-Darkest Hour), Buz McGrath (Unearth), Chris Daniele (ex-The Acacia Strain), Tim MacMillar (Protest The Hero), Justin Longshore (Through The Eyes Of The Dead), and Josh Gilbert (As I Lay Dying, Wovenwar). Izayea is now streaming "So Resolved," the album's Coyle-composed track.
"I am tremendously proud (and dare I say, aroused!) to announce the release of my second advanced single 'So Resolved' off of my new collaboration record Harder Truths that arrives on Black Friday, 11/26/21. This track was composed by and features on guitar the legendary Doc Coyle. Arguably one of the hardest working guys in the business as far as heavy music goes; I am truly honored to have worked on this song with him and hugely grateful that despite the heinous demands on his time, he still made himself available to both take part in this project and ensure it stayed on schedule… all while delivering nothing short of a BANGER that pushed me to produce past all of my known limits.
"As anyone who knows him can attest; his good nature, friendliness, and consummate professionalism makes for a powerhouse in collaboration, as 'So Resolved' will hopefully illustrate. Work on this album took nearly two years to complete, as honoring my commitments to From Under Concrete Kings, Seeking Sirens, and Sour Times was of paramount importance to ensure that none were negatively impacted by this enormous and frankly, fanciful undertaking. I hope you find it worth the wait! – Chenqui!"
