FLAW To Release 'Vol IV: Because Of The Brave' Album This Month

Louisville's FLAW will release its new album, "Vol IV: Because Of The Brave", on July 19 via Pavement Entertainment. Amid the rocking hooks, the band offers songs with a mixture of personal, patriotic, and heartfelt lyrics.

With Chris Volz at the helm, FLAW's story began with the independent release of home-grown albums "American Arrogance" (1996), "Flaw" (1998) and "Drama" (2000). It was the songs on these recordings that garnered the attention of Republic Records, who signed the band and released the breakthrough "Through The Eyes" in 2001. The album topped the Billboard Heatseekers chart, largely fueled by the singles "Payback" and "Whole". The band then followed up with an album titled "Endangered Species" via Republic in 2004, but soon thereafter the band went through personnel changes and ended their relationship with the label. Volz stayed creative, releasing a critically acclaimed solo record, and also touring aggressively with the band FIVE.BOLT.MAIN. The bandmembers' tumultuous relationship with each other, and their label, was reflected in their songs.

It was always FLAW fans' connection to their songs that carried the band on.

"We would not be where we are today without our hardcore fans," says Volz. "The FLAW family is the backbone of everything we do."

FLAW signed with Pavement Entertainment in 2015. With a new label and fresh outlook, they released their next full-length studio album, "Divided We Fall", and "United We Stand" EP. After actively touring the U.S. and making an apperance on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" with its single "Conquer This Climb", FLAW is ready for the world to hear "Vol IV: Because Of The Brave".

FLAW is:

Chris Volz - Vocals
Tommy Gibbons - Guitar
Rob Buttorff - Guitar
Georges Octobous - Drums
