Two days before the release of its second full-length, “Unstable” (April 30, 2021, Napalm Records), Los Angeles-based metal band Tetrarch has released the single “Addicted.” The song follows previous singles “I’m Not Right,” “You Never Listen” and “Negative Noise.”
“‘Addicted’ is a song about being consumed by something in life that to the outside eye may appear detrimental or dangerous,” vocalist/guitarist Jose Fore said. “Even as our world may be spiraling away from us into chaos there’s something that draws us towards our obsessions. ‘Now I can see that the joke is on me’ is that moment of self-awareness: that we cannot escape who we are and that we are stuck in our own addictions.”
Tetrarch also has announced it will play shows with Chevelle, Sevendust and more on Saturday, June 26, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, at Ford Park Live, and Sunday, June 27, in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, at Now Arena. Socially distanced pods will go on sale at 11 a.m. EDT Friday, April 30. For more information, go to https://www.nowarena.com/ or https://fordparklive.com.
Produced by the band and Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Allegaeon, Khemmis), “Unstable” follows the band’s breakout debut “Freak” (2017).
Lead guitarist Diamond Rowe said: “The album has an overall theme of self-reflection and really looking at the relationships or parts of yourself/your life that you don’t like and getting out of those situations. It’s an angsty record. Musically, we were not timid in showing that we refuse to be boxed in as artists, and I think we really came out swinging with showing the world the type of band that we want to be. ‘Freak’ did great for us and showed us that the music we were making was something that people wanted to hear, and that gave us the confidence to write and record this beast of an album.”
