Foreign Language will be released via Pure Noise Records Oct. 11, highlighting a change in direction for the band.

“Foreign Language is a record that I felt necessary to put out,” vocalist Chris LoPorto explains.“These events in my life that I had never touched on in previous material, that I never had the right words for, finally made sense in the time we are living in now. To be able to write music honestly and to be transparent with our agenda, has always been the goal and ‘Foreign Language’ is the best interpretation of that yet.

“It is very easy to fall under criticism and do what you ‘think’ you should do with your art–if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it–and while I too am a victim of these tropes and have hit roadblocks creativity because of the pressure, I can proudly say that this release came so naturally and organically, playing to our strengths but also letting the mistakes and mishaps have their place on the recordings.”

Now, fans can check out the new track “Filthy Rich” featuring Trash Talk‘s Spencer Pollard.

“Money makes people do awful things,” LoPorto says of the track. “It can turn friends into enemies and family members into distant strangers. The song is about feeling manipulated, used, and taken advantage of by someone who is close to you. The bridge always felt a bit empty and uninteresting in the demo stage to me but luckily my good friend Spencer Pollard, whose band Trash Talk I briefly played in years ago, was in town and came by the studio to sing on the song. After that, it finally felt complete.”

“Filthy Rich” Lyrics:

I plead the 5th
it’s all I could do
you left a trace
DEGENERATE
I signed the bill
and covered your name
oh, what a waste
DEGENERATE
is blood really thicker than the water you drink?
and was I your first choice or did you have to think?
swearing on the book, you didn’t know it was wrong
well it made you filthy rich, I guess you knew all along
your god complex, I’m not impressed
I saw what you became

I can play the perfect part in your game
(hey man what’s really going on here?)
it’s not my place to critique any words that you say
(I’m not sure but it’s really seeming unclear)
the power of the pen is mightier than the sword: an arms race
but don’t you stick your fucking check in my face

think about it, could it be you?
if the tables were to turn,
would you know what to do?
looked me in the eyes, stabbed me right in the back
I was in the courtroom while you were counting your stacks
your god complex, I’m not impressed
I saw what you became

obviously running out of patience
let’s just face it
tables turned I know you couldn’t take it
let’s just face it

we’re relatives, but we can’t relate
I’m nothing like you and I never will be
burn in hell 

On top of Pollard’s contribution, fans can expect to hear Adam Lazzarra of Taking Back Sunday, Frank Carter, and Drew Dijorio of Stray From the Path on the EP.
