Drop Official Music Video For New Track “TELESCOPE”
Nu-Core quintet Tallah, one of modern metal’s most explosive and unbridled forces, have announced their sophomore full-length album, The Generation of Danger, today. The album will be released on September 9th, via Earache Records and much like their debut album, will revolve around around an elaborate and horrific story, dreamt up by the band that will unfold over the coming months in the build up to release. Pre-orders are available now, HERE.
To further push the world-building boundaries the band are known for, Tallah have also released a desktop video that accompanies today’s announcement. Fans can play HERE to uncover aspects of the dark The Generation of Danger universe including the first new single ‘Telescope‘ and its accompanying music video that was also released today.

Speaking on today’s announcement, Tallah frontman, Justin Bonitz shares
“’The Generation Of Danger’ is a completely new and fresh concept for us, both lyrically and instrumentally. We wanted to take what made ‘Matriphagy’ so good and jack it up to 150%. The tracks are monstrous, daunting, and the story the music tells dives into the idea of people hiding what they truly desire until someone else comes along and forces it to surface. It’s a concept album about a genius scientist who gets fed up with being swept under the rug. After the multi-billion-dollar corporation that employs him takes credit for his latest, award-winning invention, he snaps and retaliates against them by forcing them to take part in the greatest experiment the world of science has ever seen.”
Drummer, Max Portnoy adds
“Telescope is one of fastest and most chaotic songs on The Generation Of Danger. It was the first song I started working on for the record and it went through hundreds of changes. It’s one of my top picks from the album with the song having 2 different choruses. One being a melodic one and one with a more rap type of vibe. The song has a lot to offer.”
“The TGOD game was something I’ve been wanting to do since we started thinking of unique ways to present this album. It was an idea I hadn’t seen anyone do before and it’s the perfect way of setting up the album’s concept while offering loads of easter eggs and teasers. You’re essentially placed directly into the story and I feel it’s the most immersive thing we’ve ever done. I’m super proud of how it turned out.”
As with Tallah‘s debut full-length, Matriphagy, The Generation Of Danger offers fans more than just an album of pioneering nu-core metal. Whilst it will most certainly be lauded for Justin Bonitz‘s acclaimed aptitude for embodying numerous characters and emotions in his outstanding vocal shape-shifting and ability to meld the ever-blossoming ingenuity of Tallah’s intrepid musicians, The Generation Of Danger will reward those who delve deeper into the album and its supplementary content. The album was recorded once more with producer Josh Schroeder at Random Awesome Studio and continues to build the fascinatingly dark nu-core metal beast Tallah have created and set loose.
In celebration of The Generation Of Danger, Tallah will be greeting fans old and new with a vast schedule of touring activity in 2022, starting with a mammoth 52 date trek with All That Remains, Miss May I and Varials on a US tour over March, April and May. Tickets Available HERE.
The band will also finally be hopping across the pond to Europe once more for Bloodstock Open Air and Brutal Assault festivals in August.
Emerging from Pennsylvania in 2018 and combining the percussive force of second-generation drummer Max Portnoy with the pure, war-torn fury of vocalist and YouTube sensation Justin Bonitz, nu-core gang Tallah are on a mission to revamp and modernize the much-loved sound of popular nu-metal sensations of the early 2000s.
Drawing inspiration from the musical influences of their youth (the likes of Slipknot, Korn and Linkin Park), Tallah fuse the razor-sharp precision of these acts with the raw edges of modern hardcore music displayed by current sensations Code Orange, Vein, Candy and Fire From The Gods.
The band’s debut album Matriphagy, a harrowing concept album of brutally disturbing metal, was met with critical acclaim, with Slipknot’s Knotfest crowning it “one of the best metal releases of the year” and Metal Hammer declaring Tallah are ‘leading the charge on the new wave of Nu-Metal”. Matriphagy was also devoured by the fans, with the album racking up 9 million Spotify streams in the months since its release.
2021 saw Tallah indulged fans with a colossal collaboration “Vanilla Paste” (where they were joined by members of the formidable Chelsea Grin, Fire From The Gods and Guerrilla Warfare), team up with Avatar for their North American tour in Sept/Oct 2021, hit up spots at major USA festivals such as Blue Ridge Rock Fest and Welcome To Rockville, and receive nominations for Best International Breakthrough Band at the UK’s Heavy Music Awards and Best Live [Streamed] Act at the AIM Independent Music Awards.
Tallah‘s cruelly ferocious new album The Generation Of Danger, due for release on September 9th, 2022 via Earache Records will only serve to extend their fascinatingly dark nu-core metal further into the metal community.
Since its release, the band have clocked up 13.9 million streams and 5.7 million YouTube views on ‘Matriphagy’. They have over 118,498 monthly Spotify listeners and have had tracks added to 25 Spotify editorial playlists.
