Atlanta-via-Los Angeles metal outfit TETRARCH have announced their sophomore full-length, Unstable, which arrives April 30 via Napalm Records. The album’s ten songs are co-produced by the band and Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Allegaeon, Khemmis).

Following the 2020 release of Unstable‘s lead single, “I’m Not Right,” another taste of the record arrives with a music video for blistering new cut, “You Never Listen.”

On the track, vocalist and guitarist Josh Fore explains:

“‘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. 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.”
 
Touching on the track’s music video, lead guitarist Diamond Rowe adds:
 
“We wanted to do something unexpected and approach the song from a different lens. Conceptually, the video follows a young kid who is obviously living in a bad situation in a messed-up home. Throughout the video, the kid deals with the inner voices and visions in his head, represented by the band members appearing and disappearing, as he struggles to understand what’s real and what isn’t. As the song ramps up, we wanted to portray the kid as telling those voices to shut up as he takes control and rids himself of the negative energy around him.”
