Here's an ultimatum! You must check out Shattered Sun. The Texas six-piece upstarts are beginning to get some buzz behind them and they've teamed with Loudwire to exclusively bring you the lyric video for their new song "The Ultimatum."

The hard-hitting track (listen above) offers a blend of brutality and melody all in one heavy package. Vocalist Marcos Leal tells Loudwire,"‘The Ultimatum’ is kind of our big ‘F--- You’ to everyone who ever said we couldn't do this. No one ever expected us to go anywhere except for us. We gave ourselves the ultimatum to take the chance on following this dream or basically giving up -- giving up isn't in our blood, it's just not who we are. This song is a testament to where we are today and the long road ahead of us ... This is just the beginning."

And speaking of the song being "a testament," the band will be touring this spring with thrash veterans Testament and Exodus. The trek will keep the band on the road throughout the month of April. In addition, fans can catch them playing the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival April 18 in Worcester, Mass. and the River City Rockfest in San Antonio, Texas, on May 24. See all of their tour dates below.

Look for Shattered Sun's Hope Within Hatred album, arriving on April 21. The disc is available for purchase in a variety of options at this location.
