Written by John Deaux

The ever fabulous SEETHING AKIRA are delighted to announce that they’re confirmed to play Victorious Festival in Portsmouth this August. They’ll be playing the Seaside Stage on the 27th along with SHY FX and many others, & a fantastic performance (as usual with their live show!) is expected!

With so many fabulous bands playing, including the likes of Charlatans, Elbow, Stereophonics, Madness, Rita Ora, Franz Ferdinand, Jesus and Mary Chain along with many more, this whole weekend’s going to be pretty damn awesome & Portsmouth will definitely be the place to get down and party!

The band are currently working on their hugely anticipated debut album which is due for release later this Autumn, and is being produced by Jim Davies (Prodigy, Pitchshifter). Having heard several of the tracks, I can confirm this one’s going to be a monster!

Upcoming shows:
24th June, La Fetes De La Musique, Belgium
27th August, Victorious Festival, Portsmouth
7th October, Mammothfest, Brighton

Backlash featuring Olly Simmons (The Qemists)
SEETHING AKIRA release their brash & bristling high energy new single ‘Backlash‘ featuring Olly Simmons (The Qemists) on 27th March. This is the first single to be released from the band’s long awaited debut album which will be released in June, and will usher in the rise and rise of this fabulous South Coast band!
“…Seething Akira breathes new life into an increasingly growing underground scene….. hooking beats like The Prodigy and a unique style like Enter Shikari, this band create something personal but show the ability of becoming front runners in an ever growing popular genre!”

‘Backlash‘ was produced by vocalist Charlie Bowes, Rhys Fulber & Jim Davies, mastered by Greg Reely (Canada), and features Olly Simmons on vocals.

SEETHING AKIRA:
Seething Akira are a 5 piece crossover band from Portsmouth on the south coast of the UK. Created back in 2011, Charlie Bowes (writer and vocalist) and Kit Conrad (lead vocalist) decided they wanted to create a hybrid band of electronic synths, guitars and “Beastie Boys” style vocals and they’ve been working tirelessly for the past 4 years to fine tune their sound & get out and show they’re unique style and live show whilst supporting the likes of Skindred, The Qemists, Hacktivist, Senser, Don Broco, Pop Will Eat Itself to name a few.
 
Anyone who’s ever seen them live will attest to their crazy wild & wonderful live show, if you like your music full on, high energy and body shakingly irresistible, this band is most definitely for you!

Charlie Bowes (Vocals/Synths/Producer/Writer), Kit Cuntrad (Vocals), Ryan Jarrad-Keen (Guitar), Stu Radcliffe (Drums), Richard Speaight (Bass)
