Year of the Locust

Detroit, Michigan (February 9, 2018) – Opening the night for the Starset – Immersion Part 1 show at Saint Andrew’s Hall tonight was New York-based Year Of The Locust (YOTL). The lil band from the Northeast is a hard-rock based quartet featuring Scott McGiveron (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Fred Serrell (Bass/Vocals), Peter Hellers (Vocals/Guitar) and Raeshwan Greene (Drums).

With a small sampling from their 2016 LP, Devolver, and current single “Rise Up” at their disposal, the thirty-minute set was a well-received surprise for the sparse crowd on hand. The music was loud and the YOTL performance was spot on. Rock and roll as was meant to be played loud and raucous. If you are a fan of innovative, well played, hard-rock music, do yourself a favor and put Year Of The Locust on your ‘must see’ list – you won’t be disappointed.

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, was produced by Jimmy Sabella (Metal Allegiance, Marcy Playground, Nine Days) and mastered By Don Zientara (Foo Fighters, John Frusciante, Minor Threat, Fugazi) and released 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 and energy driven music the band has produced to date.
