Louder

Songfacts®:

  • This hard-rocking track finds Phil Labonte screaming, howling and crooning lyrics about standing your ground.

    The truth is loud no matter where you hide.
    Sleep walker, fear monger, I make the rules you ain't got nothing on me


    Asked by Metal Hammer about the inspiration behind the track, Labonte replied: "The song 'Louder' is about not backing down or self-censoring because people yell about what you think or believe. There will always be people who want to shout you down or say you can't and that's when you have to stand firm."
