Elysia Schedule Co-Headline Tour With The Warriors

Ferret Music's Californian based death-core outfit ELYSIA has announced that they will be co-headlining a March/April tour with THE WARRIORS, with support from THE GHOST INSIDE and STRAY FROM THE PATH.

A tour with The Warriors is fitting given the origin of Elysia’s name, which in Roman mythology means the final resting place for soldiers.

The band is ready to get on the road, especially on this tour, tells vocals Zak Vargas, “We have heard from a ton of bands and friends that they think we’d all be really compatible. We really like The Warriors and Stray From the Path, and have toured with The Ghost Inside before and had a great time.”

Having just finished up recording with Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE) at God City Studios in Salem, MA, the band are ready to get their music out to the general public, tells Zak, “We really like how the record turned out and we really believe in these songs, so we’re looking forward to getting it out there. It’s a much darker album, sort of socially conscious from a depressive state, because when we were recording I was physically sick from all kinds of anxiety. This is actually always what I wanted to do, to have really emotional songs that are very intense to play live. The sound of the album is very offbeat and weird compared to what is going on in the scene right now, still very heavy but we played around with a lot of with the instruments, and we even threw a tambourine in the mix.”

Known for their excessively brutal but socially conscious hardcore/metal mix, they thrive on audience interaction and showed their viewpoints on a recent tour with THIS IS HELL and RUINER.

“This tour has been really great, with varied crowds, and we’re good friends with the other bands by now. It has been much more relaxed than we expected: we thought we’d stick out like a sore thumb but everyone has been
very excited.”
