Breaking News: Obey the Brave Announce New Upcoming Album “Mad Season”

obey the brave mad season

Montreal/Ottawa based hardcore group Obey the Brave have recently announced that they will be releasing their third full length record, “Mad Season”, on June 2nd.  Featuring a unique style of hardcore punk fronted by Despised Icon’s own, Alex Erian, Obey the Brave have established themselves as a prominent hardcore band since their formation in 2011.  The album, set to be released on Epitaph Records, is the first release since their 2014 sophomore album, “Salvation”, and is also the first release from the Canadian outfit since their significant lineup changes.  The new material will feature Terrence McAuley and Cory Wilson’s first recorded performances as members of the group, which should reflect heavily on the sound we’ve heard from Obey the Brave in past releases.  Unfortunately, as of right now a single has yet to be released for “Mad Season”, however once it does we’ll be sure to attach it at the bottom of the post!  In the meantime, the album’s track listing has been attached below.

Personally, I wasn’t too thrilled with “Salvation”, so seeing new members join the Canadian hardcore band is a great sign in my opinion.  Being a huge Despised Icon fan, I’ve personally stayed up to date with Alex Erian’s musical projects, especially after hearing Obey the Brave’s widely successful first full length album, “Young Blood”, shortly after it’s 2012 release.  However, “Salvation” seemed to sound like a slightly lesser version of their phenomenal debut record and didn’t leave the same lasting impression on me that “Young Blood” did.  In fact, with Obey the Brave’s inactivity over the last year and Despised Icon’s return with “Beast” and their frequent touring, I thought that Obey the Brave was finished, at least for the near future.  This recent news of new members and new material, however, has me very excited to hear the possible redemption to the somewhat disappointing record, “Salvation”.  Of course, when the album is released a review of the record will be posted here, so stay tuned for more posts regarding Obey the Brave!
