Recently signed to Sharptone Records, New Jersey’s burgeoning, progressive metal/hardcore band SENTINELS have stoked the flames of anticipation today for their forthcoming debut album by releasing a crushing new single called “Tyrant.” The band’s relentless onslaught continues, following their initial single “Inertia,” which will also be featured on the band’s first full-length record due out later this year.

Drummer Dave Rucki, discusses the track:

“Lyrically, Tyrant is about living under a person of power who uses their position and authority to oppress and dictate, rather than be the leader the people need. It’s personally one of my favorite tracks we’ve ever written as a band. I think this track perfectly captures the type of aggression and intensity we strive for when we play live. Once we heard it mixed and complete with Josh’s vocals, we were all losing our minds. We hope it hits you the same way it hit us, and we look forward to the day we can perform it live for you.”


The New Jersey quintet—Thomas Cardone [guitar], Chris Dombrowski [guitar], Danny Cruz [bass, vocals], Dave Rucki [drums, vocals], and Josh Hardiman [vocals]— cut their teeth with EPs “Idylls” [2013] and “World Divide” [2016] and cemented their signature sound with 2019’s “Unsound Recollections,” which featured fan favorite tracks “Elysium” and “Déjà Vu.” Having proven themselves time and time again with boundless technical musicianship and dynamic songwriting, SENTINELS set their sites on conquering the metalcore scene with their hotly anticipated debut full-length that’s due out later this year from SharpTone Records.
