Harder Truths is the epic debut solo release from JOSEPH IZAYEA featuring some heavyweights of the metal world including the legendary Doc Coyle from BAD WOLVES & GOD FORBID, Kris Norris, formerly of DARKEST HOUR, Buz McGrath of UNEARTH, Chris Daniele, formerly of The ACACIA STRAIN, Tim MacMillar of PROTEST THE HERO, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD’s Justin Longshore, as well as Josh Gilbert of AS I LAY DYING / WOVENWAR.
“I’m absolutely elated to announce the coming release of my first ever solo album, “Harder Truths”. I did my very best to assemble this album in collaboration with some of the best and brightest songwriters in heavy music, some of whom I have personally been following for many years, and even a few of whom I’m honored to now call my friends. This endeavor took a lot of time to put together, as ensuring my commitments to my other projects, Sour Times, Seeking Sirens, and From Under Concrete Kings was paramount of my priorities. Also of tremendous importance was doing this thing the right way, involving as many of my friends in my current and former bands into the fold as possible, because I wouldn’t be here today without them. I truly hope that you all will find this release well worth the wait.”
JOSEPH has been producing songs and performing as a vocalist since 2007, and has released nine albums, numerous singles and covers of various genres. Currently the vocalist for FROM UNDER CONCRETE KINGS, SEEKING SIRENS, and SOUR TIMES, he’s shown no signs of slowing down. This collaboration album will be released under the umbrella of JOSEPH’s production company “Do Work” on the 26th November 2021.
