Today, CA based metalcore stalwarts Secrets released their crushing new single and video for “The Collapse”, which serves as the titular track on their upcoming album “The Collapse” out on June 10th, 2022, via Velocity Records.
You can pre-order the album here. Starting with debut single “Parasite” (released earlier this year), the new album showcases the bands relentless creative drive and ability to craft heavy music that has solidified their place as one of the most exciting voices in their genre and beyond.
“The Collapse” is a caustic tour-de-force of metalcore fury that is equal parts aggressive and emotive. Angular riffs weave in and out of each other building to an explosive crescendo supported by a brutally heavy groove. Powerhouse vocals courtesy of the bands dual frontmen juxtapose soaring melodies against anguished and guttural screams, delivering lyrics with chilling effect. The official music video is a swirling, cinematic snapshot of the bands ferocious stage energy that lends a compelling visual element to the song, you can view it below.
On the theme of the newest song, the band has this to say:
“This is our second single release of 2022 and it really showcases the big aspects of Secrets. Super catchy choruses with massive heavy parts all together tying in the theme of addiction”.
The band spent the early part of 2022 reintroducing audiences across the country to their massive sound as part of The Velocity Records Tour alongside labelmates Scary Kids Scaring Kids, D.R.U.G.S., Dead American and Glasslands. Expect more show announcements and singles this spring. “The Collapse” is available for pre-order now, here, through Velocity Records.

Since their formation over a decade ago, California-based metalcore band Secrets has been a giant within and beyond their genre. Relentless stalwart drive and progressive creativity have solidified the band’s place in their scene’s development and impact on the masses. After being signed to Velocity Records in 2011, Secrets released their debut full-length album, “The Ascent” in January 2012. The record debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and became the first incarnation of a Velocity Records release to appear on the Billboard Top 200, debuting at No.185.
Aggressive worldwide touring and line-up changes helped refine the band and their music, leading to their second album, “Fragile Figures”, in 2013. The album was a success, selling over 10,000 copies in the first month and charting at No. 59 on the Billboard 200 charts. Secrets released their 3rd studio album, “Everything That Got Us Her”, in January 2015, seeing the album hit number 11 on the Hard Rock Albums charts and number 20 on the Independent Albums charts. Following yet another success with their 4th studio album “Secrets”, the band continued to create, perform, and push the boundaries of their music and the metalcore genre as a whole.
Fronted by the powerhouse duo Wade Walters (vocals) & Richard Rogers (vocals/guitar) and backed by Connor Branigan (guitar) and Connor Allen (drums), Secrets continues to create and release new music. The band’s new album “The Collapse” will be available on June 10th, 2022, through label partner Velocity Records.
