Madison, Wisconsin's SERIANNA has inked a deal with Bullet Tooth. The quintet is recording its debut album, "Inheritors", at JTW Studios with producer Joel Wanasek for a summer release.
A pre-production version of the song "Fragments" is available for streaming at the SERIANNA Facebook page.
SERIANNA is navigating past its peers in pursuit of something worth preserving, systematically through the muddy gridlock of the current independent music scene. This metalcore squad continues to refine its unique sound while maintaining a solid reputation as one of the region's most exciting and energetic live acts. Boasting determination as its 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 frontman. 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 its 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. 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 of 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."
Despite any future hardships or unforeseen roadblocks, SERIANNA is determined to accomplish what they have been working toward all along; creating music worth remembering.
