Serianna have been chosen to appear on the upcoming Motel 6 “Rock Yourself To Sleep” Tour this Fall with Alesana, A Skylit Drive, Sleeping With Sirens, Memphis May Fire and Attila. Hot on the heels of the release of their debut album “Inheritors” (July 26) the band is excited to get out on the road and show the country what they are all about! James Milbrandt (Guitar) checked in to say, ”We are all really excited to be a part of this years Rock Yourself To Sleep tour. We’re such big fans of all the bands on the tour and its going to be exciting to see what each night is going to bring. Pick up your copy of Inheritors and come out and sing along with us!”
The debut album “Inheritors” from Serianna (Madison, WI) is available everywhere NOW! Fans can listen to the songs “Fragments” and “Guilty Spark” at their Facebook page, and watch a full length video promo of the title track “Inheritors” at YouTube. Their songs “Fragments” and “Inheritors” are also available NOW on Rock Band for Xbox 360.
Serianna is navigating past its peers in pursuit of something worth preserving, systematically through the muddy gridlock of the current independent music scene. This metal-core squad continues to refine their unique sound while maintaining a solid reputation as one of the region’s most exciting and energetic live acts. Boasting determination as their greatest attribute, Serianna formed in late 2006 as merely high school friends with a bonded passion for heavy music. The lineup was solidified in 2009 when Chicago native Chris Nutting signed on as the band’s front man. Nutting quickly made his presence known contributing his raw and emotional vocal abilities and bringing Serianna to a previously unreached tier of musicianship.
Writing songs with a sound reminiscent of bands like August Burns Red and The Devil Wears Prada, Serianna set out to spread their music to anyone with an open mind and positive attitude. Jumping at every opportunity afforded to them, the band began growing rapidly around the Midwest and have played shows with August Burns Red, Attack Attack, Miss May I, Misery Signals, Chiodos, The Color Morale, Of Machines, Before Their Eyes, In Fear and Faith, Born of Osiris, I The Breather, Bury Your Dead, Suicide Silence, Emarosa, Bless the Fall, I Wrestled a Bear Once, and more. Serianna’s efforts culminated in 2010 as they began work on their debut full length album, appropriately titled, “Inheritors”. This marks the tenure of the band as they mesh the style and intensity of the music they grew up listening to with the originality and technicality Serianna has come to be synonymous with.
Their hard work did not go unnoticed as Josh Grabelle (President / Bullet Tooth) tracked the band’s progress on the demos and invited the band to partner with his label Bullet Tooth. “We couldn’t be more excited to release this record with Bullet Tooth” drummer Chris Ferarro comments, “Over the last couple of months Josh has showed so much direction and interest in us that we’re positive Bullet Tooth is the perfect home for Serianna”. “Inheritors” was just released on July 26, 2011 which will surely mean a breakout year for the band. Despite any future hardships or unforeseen roadblocks, Serianna is determined to accomplish what they have been working toward all along; creating music worth remembering.
