Canadian young guns Hail the Villain are set to release their debut album Population: Declining on Roadrunner this summer, and to give you a sneak peak on what to expect from these newcomers, we've got a live video of their first single "Take Back the Fear" right here:

Hail The Villain is a band with big ideas.  They aren’t satisfied with writing songs, making an album and going out on tour.  They want to create an entire Hail The Villain universe that includes not only the music, but a dynamic live show, animated videos, a comic book, a unique interactive website, and maybe even a movie someday. “Most people are going to aim for what’s attainable,” says vocalist Brian Crouch“For us, it’s aiming for what’s unattainable.”

Hail The Villain attack their career with the same hard-nosed approach you’d expect from growing up in Canada’s automobile manufacturing town of Oshawa, Ontario.  From the moment they finished recording their debut album, they have been pain-stakingly involved in all creative elements that connect to fans in their vision.

Stay tuned right here on for more on this burgeoning band.
