Weak Tyrant’s brand of hardcore has a folky slant to it. The vocals certainly wouldn’t be out of place in that genre anyway but it’s the big guitar riffs and heavy percussion that means the band are best described as melodic rock. Retreat is an easy song to listen to and its deep lyrics reward the careful listener.

The track will feature on Weak Tyrant’s forthcoming EP To Be Pure which is set for release on 22 October. You can hear Retreat below.
