Hellions have revealed details of their new album! Rue is set for release on October 19 through UNFD! The record is the highly anticipated follow-up to 2016’s Opera Oblivion.
The band have also released new single Smile! Drummer/co-writer Anthony Caruso and guitarist/vocalist/co-writer Matt Gravolin say of the track;
“The world as we know it wants to be entertained interminably, and now our entertainment often comes at the expense of our compassion. We’ve all found ourselves speaking in blue, snide language about trivial matters that aren’t of any real consequence to us, asserting invalid opinions for the sake of having our voices heard.
“Cheap stimulation is addictive and judgemental thinking can take over involuntarily when so much of our mental space is surrendered to it. We seem to be stuck here despite knowing that this thinking and behaviour isn’t conducive to any lasting happiness.”
Check out Smile below;
Rue explores the Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde inside of a person, with the tracks being split into the pessimistic and humanitarian sides of life.
