“I wanted everything about the album to be faster, darker, more evil, more raw, and way more honest that anything I have ever done,” admits vocalist/bassist Bryce Lucien. “This is a new life forSEEKER, and this album is a massive step forward for us as players and songwriters. Anyone expecting something like 2013’s Unloved or our other past work will be severely disappointed. We finally let ourselves really go for it and try everything we’d ever wanted to do musically.”
Guitarist Andy Torres adds, "Writing this album was like a long, hard fought battle. We didn't know if it was even going to happen, so finally getting to the release of Loss is a huge deal for me. I'm ready to finally start playing these songs live. We've been practicing constantly for our upcoming tours and things are sounding great, and we can't wait for everyone to hear the album."
Loss will be performed in its entirety as SEEKER’s first tour behind the album kicks off this Saturday with The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, Traitors and Spite. The October/November trek includes festival stops at So What in Dallas and Texas Revolution in Austin. December headlining dates will be announced very soon.
SEEKER recently revealed two videos from the album, for the tracks “Void” and title-track “Loss.”
Loss was recorded by Zach Ohren, known for his work with Chelsea Grin and Fallujah, and the artwork comes in the form of a hand drawn, custom piece by Farron Loathing (Nails, Huntress). Lucien continues, “We've spent nearly three years working on this album and can't wait for everyone to hear it. Expect the fastest and most chaotic music that we've ever written.”
