Atlanta nu metal band Tetrarch have shared their latest track “You Never Listen,” a cut off their forthcoming sophomore album Unstable.
With its thumping double-kicks and melodic chorus, the track evokes classic Linkin Park. The accompanying video, directed by Vicente Cordero, juxtaposes intense clips of the band performing in a dilapidated room with the bleak story of a boy who tries to escape a toxic home.
“‘You Never Listen’ is for anybody who has struggled or is struggling through a broken relationship—whether it be with a family member, friend, significant other, or even with themselves,” frontman Josh Fore said in a statement.
“So many times, we find that people we once were close with or felt like we knew well show a darker and different side of themselves that forces us apart. ‘You Never Listen’ is about having the strength to say enough is enough and to rid yourself of those toxic situations.”
“You Never Listen” follows the release of “I’m Not Right,” a track that will also appear on Unstable. The band, who are now based in Los Angeles, released their debut album Freak in 2017.
Unstable will arrive April 30 via Napalm Records. While you wait, watch the video for “You Never Listen” here:
