Defiant six-piece nu-metal rockers SEETHING AKIRA announce their much-anticipated third album Nozomi releasing on November 11 is now available for pre-order from FiXT.
Nozomi features twelve supercharged tracks across a dynamic mix of metalcore, nu-metal, and hard rock soundscapes with thrashing guitars and brutal, melodic, and infectious vocal hooks. From the hard-hitting track “Punishment Instructions,” the nu-metal single “Internal Antagonist”, the rap/rock anthem “Something In The Water,” all the way to the more introspective metalcore single “Lost At Sea,” the album is an intense journey through the human condition and its response to hope.
The next track off the pre-order campaign is the nu-metal single “Stars.” Carrying on the signature nu-metal/metalcore trend “Stars” also adds a yearning atmosphere to the band’s repertoire with uplifting and thoughtful vocal lyrics intertwined with a powerful vocal performance. Mixing in aggressive synthesizers with thrashing guitars, strong rhythms, “Stars” is an anthem about accepting the past and looking to the future.
“‘Stars‘ is the conclusion of this study,” states Seething Akira. “Accept all the imperfections inside, focusing on the positives that do exist, and the potential that great things may come to fruition. Stars is that feeling of realization, that hope has finally returned after a period of absence, with the knowledge that you are not alone. There’s still hope here for us all.”
Explosive. Bombastic. Defiant. Intense. Seething Akira continues to rock on with their gloriously turbulent nu-metal sound towards their next album, Nozomi. Hot off the editorial success of their last album Dysfunctional Wonderland and with recent appearances at the Download Festival, Heavy Music Awards, Tech Fest, Hammerdown Festival, Amplified Festival, Bloodstock, the Apocalypse Summer Bash, headlining at Southampton, joined Confession Of A Traitor on selected dates for their UK tour, an upcoming headliner at Techabilitation 2022 in Derby, a Hometown Album Launch Party at The Deco, in Portsmouth, and a recently featured single on the hit Meta Quest VR game Smash Drums with “The Fallen,” Seething Akira is not slowing down any time soon.
Seething Akira have developed a gloriously turbulent sound that is uniquely their own. Founded by vocalists Charlie Bowes and Kit Conrad, Seething Akira are a 6-piece electronic nu-core band hailing from the seafront city of Portsmouth, UK that have been tearing venues apart across Europe with their powerful fusion of genres since 2012.
The band’s first full-length album, Sleepy Skeletor, dropped in 2018 and made it clear that Seething Akira would be a force to be reckoned with in the years to come. In late 2020, the band launched a series of new singles leading up to their second album, the highly anticipated Dysfunctional Wonderland. With the strength of the band’s music and their popularity with fans rocketing skyward, they connected with the electronic rock label FiXT and forged a partnership for their future releases.
Seething Akira has been featured on the Rock Hard Spotify editorial list, while their single “Firepower” landed on Kerrang Radio and Scuzz. “I Am The Devil” and “The Islander” were both featured on BBC Introducing, and “The Islander” premiered on Soundsphere Magazine.
At home and on the road, Seething Akira have also put their stamp on staple festivals such as Download Festival, Tech Fest, Bloodstock, Victorious, Camden Rocks, and many more while touring with bands like The Qemists and The Algorithm.
Recently Seething Akira have been releasing new singles throughout 2022 for their next album while blazing a trail across Europe on tour.
