Canadian five-piece Obey The Brave have released their third full-length Mad Season today on Epitaph. With its raw passion and furious determination, the album affirms Obey The Brave as a major heavyweight in the metalcore genre.

The follow-up to 2014’s SalvationMad Season came to life during an especially tumultuous period forObey The Brave (vocalist Alex Erian, guitarists John Campbell and Terrence McAuley, bassist Cory Wilson, and drummer Stevie Morotti). But after a lineup change and a series of false starts in the studio, the band emerged with their most ambitious yet viscerally potent album so far.

Co-produced by McAuley—who worked alongside engineer/mixer Dean Hadjichristou (Protest The Hero, Parkway Drive)—Mad Season also proves to be Obey The Brave’s most stylistically diverse work to date. In addition to featuring a collaboration with French Canadian rap group Loud Lary Ajust (on the beat-heavy “RIP”), Mad Season finds Erian expanding his vocal approach and introducing a singing style inspired by old-school punk.

“There’s still a lot of screaming on the album, but it was really important for me artistically to try something different and give it my all,” says Erian. “It’s very exciting to try to reinvent yourself.”

Watch the video for Drama below. Front man Alex Erian explains “Sonically and visually, this new song and video mark a new turn in our career. We stepped out of our comfort zone and drove ourselves to new limits, trying out different ideas while maintaining the heaviness and energy from our Young Blood days. As soon as I heard that riff, all I could hear in my head was Steve’s voice over and over again. He and I have been writing and performing together in Despised Icon for 15 years. That chemistry definitely shines on this single”
