Chris Nine unleashes The Rage in his urgently intense new single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

A blistering blast of bone-crushing adrenaline, the Toronto alt-rocker’s supercharged track — a cathartic indictment of the duality and consequences of love — offers a potent preview of his forthcoming EP The Heavy, due out Sept. 24. Chris Nine’s poignant lyrics act as a two-way musical mirror held up to his listeners in an attempt to engage on a more personal level; stripping away all ego and pride, he takes a raw and honest approach with his sonic storytelling.

All that lyrical vulnerability is more than offset by the supersonic power of the punk-influenced track. A polished cocktail of razor-sharp guitar riffs, post-hardcore vocals and stadium-filling drums, the track channels artistic influences from across the spectrum of punk and alt-rock, offering musical splashes of Paramore, Rage Against the Machine, Machine Gun Kelly and others.
