Vatican announce new LP ‘Ultra,’ share video for new song “Reverence”
Savannah metalcore band Vatican have announced a new album, Ultra, due June 17 via UNFD (pre-order). It features their 2021 single "Decemeta," as well as the just-released "Reverence," which fuses bone-crushing metalcore, futuristic production, and a soaring, melodic hook.
""To me, this song has just about the whole package," says singer Mike Sugars. "Just a little bit of everything I like to hear in metalcore. I remember recording the chorus, and our producer Randy Lebouf saying, 'I don't understand how you thought to sing over this, but it's just so perfect.' The song is about people with irresponsible amounts of wealth and the damage they cause to the vast majority of regular people. We don't need 'em." Listen and watch the Eric Richter-directed, action flick-style music video below.
