Video Interview: The Color Morale on ‘Hopecore’, Screaming, Weird People and More

The Color Morale Synced.Still001

The Color Morale are a metalcore band hailing from Illinois.

Formed in 2007, the five piece released their first album We All Have Demons on Rise Records, followed by their second album My Devil in your Eyes in 2010.

Having amassed a dedicated following in the metalcore and post-hardcore scene, the band toured extensively. However, despite continued success the band’s third album Know Hope and fourth album, Hold On Pain Ends have caused controversy with some of The Color Morale’s fanbase.

The controversy stems from a change in the band’s lyrical delivery, with Garret Rapp performing more clean vocals opposed to screams that had been a prominent element in previous albums.

Although this issue has created some outcry from certain fans, The Color Morale’s fanbase have also developed a very close relationship with the band. Know Hope and Hold On Pain Ends have both frequently focused on the subject matter of depression, suicide and other hard-hitting issues which aim to help fans through hardships using music.

We chatted with The Color Morale’s frontman to discuss some of the criticism the band have received, the changes in the band’s style and much more, which you can watch in our video interview above.
