DIY heavy metal act on the rise, Seeker, has announced a headlining U.S. tour, “The Rise of Darkness Tour,” set to commence next month. Fla. metal outfit, Forty Winters, will accompany Seeker on the two-week escapade, beginning April 5 in Seeker’s hometown of Dallas, Texas. A full list of confirmed dates can be seen below.
Commented Seeker vocalist, Bryce Lucien, “We just got home from an amazing run with Corelia and I, Omega, but we already can’t wait to get back out with our friends Forty Winters. This tour is going to be absolute mayhem from start to finish, and we couldn’t be more excited to have them on the road with us next month. See you at a show.”
Seeker burst onto the scene in late 2011, playing its first show on October 1, 2011 before heading out on its first tour the following week. Lucien describes the band’s sound as, “fast, aggressive, pissed off heavy metal. Everything we do is very raw, passionate and honest.”
The band recently wrapped up a U.S. tour with Corelia and I, Omega, releasing a brand new single, “Alone,” before its departure. Fans can download/stream “Alone” for free on Bandcamp at: http://seeker.bandcamp.com/. A lyric video for “Alone” can be seen on YouTube at: http://youtu.be/MPxvttKBRK4.
“‘Alone’ is fastest and most aggressively personal song that we have ever released,” said Lucien. “This is us finally becoming the band that we’ve always wanted to be and we couldn’t be more psyched that our good friend Corey from Bermuda got to be a part of this. His guest vocals sound absolutely crushing.”
Seeker plans to release another new song in anticipation of “The Rise of Darkness Tour.”
