“HEY GANG,

I HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 THIS AFTERNOON AFTER LOSING MY TASTE, SMELL, AND FEELING MILD SYMPTOMS. UNFORTUNATELY, I WILL NOT BE PLAYING THE SHOW TONIGHT IN MINNEAPOLIS SO I CAN GO INTO ISOLATION FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS BUT THE REST OF THE BAND WILL BE THERE AND READY TO GIVE YOU THEIR ALL.

THIS TOUR HAS BEEN THE MOST AMAZING AND CATHARTIC TOUR I HAVE EXPERIENCED AND REGARDLESS I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE WHO CAME OUT TO EACH SHOW, AND EVERYONE WHO HAS HELPED MAKE THIS RUN POSSIBLE. I HOPE TO CONTINUE AND MEET BACK UP WITH THE BOYS SOON. STAND BY. MUCH LOVE.

MICHAEL BARR”

Volumes Premiere New Song “Happier?”

Volumes have shared the title track of their new album “Happier?.” As previously reported, that effort will be released on November 19. The group commented:

“‘Happier?‘ is about how you watch someone destroy themselves and ultimately end up in a darker, negative space and feeling like your hands are tied. It’s about feeling helpless to the fact that you once knew someone completely different then the person who is standing in front of you.”

Volumes Premiere “Bend” Music Video

Volumes have premiered a new video for their new song “Bend.” This track is from the band’s new album “Happier?,” which will be released on November 19. Frontman Michael Barr said the following about the song:

“‘Bend‘ is about how, in a relationship, sometimes one person can break another while all along they never seem to bend or break themselves. It’s really about how we can easily turn into someone else and start to tear each other down.”

“Happier?” Track Listing:

01. “FBX”
02. “Malevolent”
03. “Bend”
04. “Get Enough”
05. “Lets Me Down”
06. “Man On Fire”
07. “Weighted”

Crown The Empire & Volumes Announce “The Battle Of Los Angeles” Show

Crown The Empire and Volumes will be teaming up for “The Battle Of Los Angeles” show. The event will take place on September 16 at 1720 in Los Angeles, CA and it will also feature an opening set from Slay Squad.

Volumes Premiere “Get Enough” Music Video

Volumes have premiered a new video for their new single “Get Enough.” You can check that out below:

The band commented:

“‘Get Enough‘ is about the point in someone’s life where everything eventually is for personal gain. Things can get very isolating and lonely when someone is knowingly going out of their way to use and deceive something or someone for self-benefit. The song is essentially having that conversation with yourself — a nice hard look in the mirror. In general, we feel like now more than ever with as instantly gratifying as life can be, it’s more important to always look at the bigger picture and take a breather. This song speaks to that narrative.

This song is a step out of the realm Volumes has existed in for a long time. It’s showcasing another side of the band that has been percolating for quite some time. Introducing a new sonic direction was something crucial on our minds for this album and we couldn’t be more excited with the outcome. We are looking forward to playing this one live.”
