Below is our complete Julius Seizure news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Last week New Jersey-based melodic metal outfit Julius Seziure released new single "Sixth and Falling" along with a B-side, "Second Coming." The tracks are cut from the August 2013 release, "Trials." Now the band has released an official music video for "Sixth and Falling," which was directed by Patrick Canavan and can be seen below.
“Julius Seizure is one of those bands with unlimited energy, which is why I like working with them,” states director Patrick Canavan. “They got out of a five hour car ride with five guys crammed into one Jeep, and blew the crew and I away on the first take. You don't see guys with this level of intensity often.”
“The concept of this video revolves around a demon character named Rage. We see his awakening, and follow him through the night as he begins his hunt for human prey,” adds Patrick. “During this we will be flashing to another character I’ve been calling The Painter. His sanity level is dropping rapidly as he tries to finish his painting. I don't want to give anything away just yet, but I will say that Rage and The Painter will converge at the end for an intense closing scene.”

The latest round of additions to the continually-expanding lineup for 2014's installment of the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival has been disclosed, including Massachusetts' own '90s hardcore punk act, Sam Black Church.
Confirmed as one of the main headliners of the event's third night, Saturday, April 19th, Sam Black Church's set at NEMHF 2014 will mark only the third performance since the group initially disbanded at the turn of the century, and first in Central Massachusetts since the late '90s.
Stated the band upon being asked to take part in the massive event this Spring: "It is amazing what the man we used to know as Ogre has done with the New England Metalfest! We are fucking excited to be a part of it once again!"
The organizers of the fest comment: "Formed in Boston, in June of 1988 by Jesse "Jet" Crandall (vocals), Ben Crandall (guitar), Richard G. Lewis (bass), and J.R. Roach (drums), Sam Black Church was known for their energetic live performances, playing a frenetic blend of hardcore, metal, and thrash. Over the years sharing bills with bands as diverse as Bad Brains, Clutch, Motörhead, Cro-Mags, Fear, and Helmet, they were one of the most popular hardcore bands in the Northeast United States during the 1990s. After releasing three full-lengths on Taang! Records, they left to join Wonderdrug where they remained until they retired in 2000 after releasing a total of seven albums. Since disbanding, Sam Black Church reunited for a sold-out show on September 22, 2007, at The Roxy in Boston, and played a another sold-out performance at Hometown Throwdown #16 with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at House of Blues in Boston on December 29th, 2013. A documentary of their career by Duncan Wilder Johnson entitled Leave Behind a Groove in the Earth is scheduled for release in 2014."
Also now confirmed to invade this year's festival are Oceano, Scars of Tomorrow, The Last Ten Seconds of Life, InDirections, and Julius Seizure on Thursday, April 17th, and Reflections on Friday, April 18th. The setup for Saturday, April 19th has also been lengthened with Texas In July, Obey The Brave and the aforementioned Sam Black Church performance.

Julius Seizure is a professional band, and we need a vocalist to be on that level.”
Bassist Brian Daniel commented regarding Corletta’s departure: “Charlie is a great friend, and it is never an easy thing when somebody you have worked so closely with for years has chosen to part ways. We wish Charlie only the best in his future endeavors.”

New Jersey based act Julius Seizure has released a music video for new single "Second Coming," which comes off the band's sophomore EP "Trials."
Vocalist Charlie Corletta comments: "My vision for 'Second Coming' was to have the video coincide with the lyrics. I see a lot of injustice in the world. Modern warfare, political and corporate corruption, greed, violence and poverty. These are issues I can not ignore. There is no second coming. We must look to ourselves in order to fix ourselves, not religious or political figures. I wanted people to see the world we live in through my eyes."
