Metal trailblazers Tetrarch have wrapped up work on their sophomore album, Unstable, produced by Dave Otero (Cattle Decaptitation, Allegeon, Khemmis) and Tetrarch, scheduled for release this fall.
The first single from the album, “I’m Not Right,” is set to premiere on Sirius/XM’s Liquid Metal on Thursday, May 14. The song, which will be released the following day, is available to pre-save at https://tetrarch.ffm.to/imnotright.
“We are very unapologetic about who we are as a band now, and you can really hear that with this new record,” says guitarist Diamond Rowe. “It embodies everything that we want the world to hear in heavy music and I believe many people are going to love and relate to it. We are all very excited to put this out and continue riding this wave.”
Adds guitarist/vocalist Josh Fore, “With this record, we pushed ourselves to do whatever was best for the songs. I am so proud of what we have created. This record is heavy, it’s catchy, but most of all it is unequivocally Tetrarch and we are ready to bring it to the world.”
Tetrarch burst onto the scene in 2017 with the release of their full-length album, Freak, produced by Dave Otero. The album immediately reached strong positions on several iTunes charts – debuting within the Top 200 chart, at #3 on the metal charts and #17 on the rock charts. Their lead single, “Freak,” also garnered huge response from Sirius XM Octane, and hit Top 50 on the Active Rock charts. The band toured incessantly following the release of the album, including headlining gigs, slots on major tours and appearances at some of North America’s largest music festivals.
After a year of writing, the band reflected on their previous recording experience and made the decision to return to Denver to once again work with Otero as co-producer of Unstable. “It’s been quite a journey, but we are an extremely hands-on band when it comes to every aspect of what we do,”says Rowe. “Dave made it very comfortable for us to create together.”
As with their debut, Tetrarch’s Unstable amplifies the band’s tried-and-true blend of intense heavy riffage and driving drums with the dark vibes and haunting choruses of hooky modern hard rock. Tetrarch’s influences are evident but never replicated, as they stay true to their own unique sound that will appeal to any heavy music fan.
Says Rowe, “Everything that we have done as a band has led to where we are today. We are very humbled by all the support we are constantly given by our fans and we cannot wait for everyone around the world to hear this record. We are going to be touring relentlessly all over the world and playing in front of as many faces as we can. We could not be more excited.”
