Following several months off the grid show-wise, riotous Queens, New York-base psycho squad SEIZURE CRYPT are back in action this week!
Following the recent release of their latest full-length, You’ve Been Had!, the band took a brief live hiatus. But SEIZURE CRYPT welcome the return of guitarist Bishop Nazz back to the frontlines, joining bassist Grand Mal D, drummer Douglas Williamson, and dueling vocal ninjas Mike SOS and Tom The Madness. With a local show in Whitestone this weekend, more area gigs booked for November and December, and more already in the works, SEZIURE CRYPT have made a full-on homecoming to the live battlefield. Check out the list of confirmed throwdowns below.
Last week the SEZIURE CRYPT crew invaded the studios at NYC’s East Village Radio to host an episode of the Black And Blue Takeover hardcore show. Check out plenty of ball-breaking and breakdowns in the high-action screwball episode RIGHT HERE.
SEIZURE CRYPT‘s DIY ethos and diehard self-promotion has done them well over the years, the band having played over 100 self-booked shows and having received hundreds of reviews from international media on their own. Their fourth full-length since the band’s 2004 inception – as always self-released via their own 316 Productions — You’ve Been Had! rages with a dozen new tracks in under twenty-six minutes, attempting to harness their most off-kilter, high-octane brew of punk, hardcore, speed metal and lunacy yet.
Stream You’ve Been Had! in its entirety at SEIZURE CRYPT’s Bandcamp page.
