YEAR OF THE LOCUST
New York’s Year of the Locust is doing things the old fashioned way. Rather than relying on false accolades and manufactured hype, the band has taken their furious live show and stellar songwriting to the masses directly. Extensive touring throughout the country has endeared the band to fans and peers alike. Their new single, “Rise Up,” is a call to arms for the countless citizens of the world who are no longer willing to sit idly by and have their lives dictated for them.
Since releasing the full length album, DEVOLVER, (available now on iTunes, Spotify and Google play) in July of 2016 the band has toured regionally with Saliva, Tantric, Saving Abel, Devour the Day, Sons of Texas and Puddle of Mudd among others The first single, “Rise Up,” is some of the most innovative & energy driven music the band, comprised of Scot McGiveron (Lead Vox & Guitar), Fred Serrell (Bass & Vox), Peter Hellers (Vox & Guitar), and Raeshwan Greene (Drums), has produced to date
DEVOLVER, produced by Jimmy Sabella (Metal Allegiance, Marcy Playground, Nine Days) and mastered By Don Zientara (Foo Fighters, John Frusciante, Minor Threat, Fugazi)
