To say that the new Seasons After record 'Manifesto' is an evolution would be an understatement. The album, set to release in September of 2016, is a brash declaration of the policies, goals, and opinions of a band that has weathered the storm, and come back with a vengeance.
Building on their past radio success with three Active Rock Top 40-charting radio singles and over 3.5 million YouTube views, the band has grown, matured, endured, and developed a chip on their shoulder that results in a blistering array of songs that will satiate the tastes of both rock and metal music fans alike. Guitarist Jimmy Beattie states, "This album was written with nothing but the truth in mind. It's about the unspoken realities that a lot of us live with, and some of the hard truths we all face at one time or another. The idea is to let listeners know that they are not alone, and that someone understands. We can find each other in the dark."
The record truly is a roller-coaster ride that will draw the listener in with every dynamic change. Seasons After uses massive choruses and hooks mixed with heart-wrenching melodies and shrieking, chugging, glass-shattering brutality to convey the true spirit and personality of the band. Frontman Tony Housh adds, "This album is the culmination of everything we have learned both as a signed, and independent band, and as individuals over the years. We all stepped into this commitment together years ago, and this truly has become our Manifesto".
Listeners can expect to experience a variety of emotions ranging from rage to bliss and everything in between. Listen to the albums first radio single, "Fighter"...and you'll quickly realize that this band has truly arrived in thunderous fashion and successfully bridged the gap and improved on their already vast catalog of songs. The desperation and longing for something more truly translates on this record. Having toured coast-to-coast now, multiple times, the band is primed and ready to do it again to further grow their already rabid fanbase, and showcase what their hard work and dedication have brought forth in the form of their newest release, 'Manifesto'.
