LOUDMOUTH is here. Building on the band’s indie-punk DNA, it’s equal parts volatile and vulnerable. Producer Henry Stoehr (Slow Pulp) approaches the band’s core tenacity with an open heart, unleashing energy informed by guts, not necessarily genre. The band’s punk rock roots pack plenty of punch (“Planet Drool”) while new-wave moments (“Something More”) rub elbows with WLW songs that wear roughness on their sleeves (“Violet”). There’s even a carnivalesque intro, reclaiming for VIAL what it means to be ringmaster (“Ego Death”). After all: in their three-ring circus, there’s no room for clowns.
