Rising UK EDM/Metal crossover crew, Seething Akira are gearing up for the release of their new album ‘Nozomi’ on November 11th.


Founded by vocalists Charlie Bowes and Kit Conrad, Seething Akira are a 6-piece electronic nu-core band hailing from the seafront city of Portsmouth, UK that have been tearing venues apart across Europe with their powerful fusion of genres since 2012.

Nozomi‘ features twelve supercharged tracks across a dynamic mix of metalcore, nu-metal, and hard rock soundscapes with thrashing guitars and brutal, melodic, and infectious vocal hooks.

From the hard-hitting track “Punishment Instructions,” the nu-metal single “Internal Antagonist“, the rap/rock anthem “Something In The Water,” all the way to the more introspective metalcore single, “Lost At Sea,” the album is an intense journey through the human condition and its response to hope.

Seething Akira have developed a gloriously turbulent sound that is uniquely their own.
The band’s first full-length album, Sleepy Skeletor, dropped in 2018 and made it clear that Seething Akira would be a force to be reckoned with, in the years to come.

In late 2020, the band launched a series of new singles leading up to their second album, the highly anticipated Dysfunctional Wonderland. With the strength of the band’s music and their popularity with fans rocketing skyward, they connected with the electronic rock label FiXT and forged a partnership for their future releases.

Seething Akira has been featured on the Rock Hard Spotify editorial list, while their single “Firepower” landed on Kerrang Radio and Scuzz. “I Am The Devil” and “The Islander”  were both featured on BBC Introducing, and “The Islander” premiered on Soundsphere Magazine.

At home and on the road, Seething Akira have also put their stamp on staple festivals such as Bloodstock, DownloadVictorious, Camden Rocks, and many more while touring with bands like The Qemists and The Algorithm.

Recently Seething Akira have been releasing new singles throughout 2022 for their next album while blazing a trail across Europe on tour.
