Inclination, the band featuring Knocked Loose guitarist Isaac Hale, is now streaming their new single "Epidemic" alongside the announcement of their debut album Unaltered Perspective due out October 21. The single features a guest spot from Indecision vocalist Tom Sheehan for that extra jaw-breaking punch and you can check it out below.
"The message in 'Epidemic' stems from the wanton destruction brought on by the pharmaceutical industry in the United States," said vocalist Tyler Short. "Politicians and policy makers happily look the other way and get rich while the opioid crisis kills tens of thousands of Americans every year. Tom Sheehan from Indecision recorded a part on the track and his unmistakable voice and style really amplify the frustration and desperation conveyed throughout the song."
"The lyrical aim of Unaltered Perspective was capture the anguish and sadness wrought by a series of observations and lived experiences," bassist Caleb Murphy. "Frustration from being at the mercy of a society. that treats people as a commodity, or the despair of a friend throwing their life away for nothing. The record is about looking at these experiences as an opportunity for self-reflection and growth, and making a conscious decision to not let your past limit your future.
"It's about finding the strength to keep fighting. The record draws a lot of influences from 90's metallic hardcore but also treads into territory that is new to Inclination. We wholeheartedly think it is our absolute best material to date."
Unaltered Perspective is available for pre-order here.
