THE SEEKING SIGN TO RAZOR & TIE

Debut Studio Album, Yours Forever, Scheduled For Release on November 6th
Razor & Tie is pleased to announce the addition of Sacramento California’s The Seeking to its label roster. The melodic Christian metal band has signed a worldwide multi album deal and will release their debut studio album Yours Forever on November 6th.  The band will also hit the road this November with Woe is Me, Chunk No Captain Chunk, Our Last Night, Secrets and Capture the Crown (full tour dates below).
The Seeking guitarist/vocalist man Dylan Housewright comments, “We feel so blessed to be a part of the Razor & Tie family.  We’re very excited to work with them and release our first full length record that we’ve worked extremely hard on.  Be on the lookout for more music from The Seeking coming your way in the future!”
Razor & Tie A&R rep Dylan Chenfeld adds, “Rarely do you hear a band this young who writes songs this well. From the first moment we heard The Seeking we knew there was something special about this band and had to sign them. We’re very excited to welcome them to the R&T family.”
The Seeking formed in 2010 while still in high school.  The group immediately began to stir up buzz locally due to their patented personal style, confidently walking between metal, pop, and hard rock. After a year of writing and performing, they hit the studio with producer Colby Wedgeworth (Ten After Two, The Maine, This Century, Austin Gibbs) to record what would eventually become their debut album Yours Forever. The album fuses together precise metal intensity with impenetrable melodic sensibility, yielding a sound that’s utterly undeniable and often uplifting.  The Seeking also continually deliver on stage. They’ve floored crowds at festivals such as Warped Tour and Rock & Roots, and they’ll be rarely leaving the road once they embark on their first U.S. jaunt in the fall of 2012.

The Seeking is Taylor Green (Vocals),  Dylan Housewright (Guitar/Vocals), Grayson Smith (Guitar),  Shane Tiller (Bass), and Ben Wood (Drums) The band is managed Eric Rushing of The Artery Foundation and represented for touring by Matt Anderson of the Pantheon Agency.
The Seeking is the latest addition to independent label Razor & Tie’s expanding Rock roster that includes such artists as All That Remains, The Sword, For Today, P.O.D., Such Gold, Nonpoint, Chelsea Grin, Shadows Fall, Norma Jean, Attila, Saves The Day, Hit the Lights, and many more.  The New York City-based label is one of the fastest growing independent record companies in the United States, and has garnered both Platinum sales and Grammy awards in its 20-year history.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
