Featuring 3 tracks from the forthcoming June 8th release Population: Declining as well as two rare live tracks, Canadian heavy hitters Hail the Villain's limited edition 'Record Store Day EP' is streaming right now on Tunelab!

Go RIGHT HERE to listen to what critics are calling, "overly infectious" and writhing with "an aggression not seen anywhere in music today."

Or as lead singer Bryan Crouch explains it, “When I was writing, I was under a lot of stress and was paranoid as fuck. I thought my health was not right, I thought I was in trouble. I made so many crazy mistakes instead of choosing the right path like my brother did. We all dropped out of school… I was just freaking out. This record was the be all and end all."

Hail the Villain's appeal doesn't stop at their sonic output: the band created a tale of hate, lust and deceit, giving characters life and form by way of a forthcoming accompanying comic book, an upcoming animated video for lead single "Take Back the Fear" and a groundbreaking interactive website entrenched in the storyline.

Go here to learn more about Hail the Villain, look out for their crushing debut Population: Declining out June 8th and don't miss the band on a national tour with Sevendust this spring.
