Post-hardcore heroes INHALE EXHALE are excited to unleash new track “Carpe Diem,” which is premiering exclusively today with tastemaker Revolver. The track is the second new song the band is previewing for fans in advance of the October 9th release of its anticipated fourth album, Movement, on Red Cord Records.
The track is representative of the Cleveland rockers’ approach on Movement, deftly avoiding pigeon-holing, remaining aggressive and technical but balancing that with melody and songwriting chops. Lyrically, “Carpe Diem” touches on themes that run deep throughout Movement.
“‘Carpe Diem’ is basically about the idea the album is centered on – moving forward and keeping your head up above all the garbage the world throws at you,” says guitarist John LaRussa. “It’s about making the most from any situation. If it’s something positive, rolling with it and remembering the good from it. If it’s negative, take it and use it to make yourself stronger. We get something out of every experience, and it’s up to us what we do with it.”

Following Movement’s October 9th release, INHALE EXHALE return to Europe for several weeks of tour stops throughout Germany, Austria, Poland, Netherlands, Czech Republic and the Ukraine.
Self-produced by LaRussa at his own Revelry Recording, Movement is a study in controlled chaos. The volatile, melody-driven anthems carry the weight of seasoned survivors who persevere come what may. It’s easily INHALE EXHALE’s most aggressive work to date – a fact only underscored by ferocity of their previous albums. On Movement, they push the envelope on all fronts while staying true to their hearts, their fans and their roots.
Following three successful albums with longtime label Solid State Records, INHALE EXHALE have become a fixture in the hardcore and metal community – setting a high bar from day one. Now, six years and four albums in, the band has seen and done it all – surviving through gimmicks and fads that have moved in and out of heavy music and learning from them to stay true to themselves. With Movement, INHALE EXHALE prove they’ve lost none of their fire and prove that today’s up-and-comers still have a lot of work to do.
