Louisville, KY hardcore conquerers, Inclination, have announced their debut album, “Unaltered Perspective”, due out on October 21st, 2022, via Pure Noise Records. “Unaltered Perspective” proves exactly why Inclination have been turning so many heads in their relatively short existence.
The album features a seemingly endless well of vicious riffs courtesy of guitarists Peter Katter and Isaac Hale (who also plays with heavyweights Knocked Loose), while bassist Caleb Murphy and drummer Christopher Mills provide an earth-shaking foundation. And all the while the band’s towering sound provides the perfect delivery system for vocalist Tyler Short’s roaring voice and pointed lyricism.
To mark the announcement, Inclination have shared a new song, “Epidemic” (stream it below). The pummeling track follows “Thoughts and Prayers” and “A Decision”, which drew attention from the likes of Stereogum, The FADER, Revolver Magazine, BrooklynVegan, and more. Featuring guest vocals from Indecision vocalist Tom Sheehan, “Epidemic” picks up where those songs left off, with the band’s towering, 90s-influenced hardcore somehow sounding even more cutting than ever before.
Short discussed the new song, saying: “The message in ‘Epidemic’ stems from the wanton destruction brought on by the pharmaceutical industry in the Unite States. Politicians and policy makers happily look the other way and get rich while the opioid crisis kills tens of thousands of Americans every year. Tom Sheehan from Indecision recorded a part on the track and his unmistakable voice and style really amplify the frustration and desperation conveyed throughout the song”.
