NEW ALBUM SCARS FOR YOU TO REMEMBER OUT OCTOBER 14 VIA FEARLESS RECORDS


HEADLINE TOURING UNDERWAY NEXT MONTH

 Philadelphia quintet VARIALS — Mitchell Rogers [vocals], Mike Foley [bass], James Hohenwarter [guitar], Shane Lyons [guitar], and Sean Rauchut [drums] — recently announced their new album Scars For You to Remember. The metallic juggernaut is their third long player and it will arrive on October 14 via Fearless Records. Pre-order it here

Today, the Philly crew has shared the video for “Circles.” Watch it here.

While Varials go hard — really hard — on their new album Scars for You to Remember, they show off their contemplative and dynamic side with “Circles.” The song starts out with an almost melancholic verse before erupting into a larger-than-life chorus with a pulsating riff and percussion. It’s a master class in quiet-loud atmosphere, and shifts to utter ferocity in the middle of the song. The song vacillates between many moods from start to finish and that’s what makes it wholly satisfying.

“‘Circles’ is a new but familiar style for the band,” says Varials.  “We’ve touched on sounds like this before, but this is the melodic climax of the record and our career this far. We hope to take this sound further into the future.”

Varials’ headline tour kicks off next month on October 7 in Asbury Park, NJ. All dates are below.

Balance occurs in the midst of extremes. Varials seamlessly alternate between moments of crushing power and melodic poise, unlocking harmony in the middle of opposite poles. The band continues to sharpen this signature style with searing intensity, uncontainable energy, and uncompromising creativity. They’ve carefully cultivated this sound over the years. The band attracted a devout fanbase with Pain Again [2017] and In Darkness [2019]. The latter yielded “Romance,” which amassed 3 million Spotify streams and counting. Of the title track, Decibel raved, “Varials have their own modern spin on hybridizing metal and hardcore into a powerful new amalgam.” Meanwhile, they hit the road with the likes of All That Remains, Wage War, Oceans Ate Alaska, Kublai Khan, and more. During 2021, Mitchell assumed full vocal duties for the band. After amassing tens of millions of streams and earning acclaim from DecibelRevolver, and Alternative Press, to name a few, the band deliver controlled chaos like never before.
