Serianna Finishes New Album "Define Me"

Serianna just wrapped up time in studio for new album "Define Me" with producer Josh Schroeder, who is responsible for new albums from For Today and The Color Morale.

The 13 song album "Define Me" will be released on August 13th, 2013via Bullet Tooth through Ingrooves/Fontana. The first music video for "Exist To Outlive" will premiere on VEVO this July and the band kicks off a U.S. tour with In Dying Arms on August 6th.

Guitarist and songwriter Kris Meyer-Ruef commented on the new album: "The Inheritors record was almost 3 years in the making by the time we had the pleasure of releasing it on Bullet Tooth. It seems only natural that at least 4 years since the birth of that record, Serianna is due for serious growth. Over the past year, we have gone through a major line up change and thought hard about the future of our band. It was pretty apparent to any fan of our band before that we were heavily rooted in metal core, influenced by the bands that could riff the tightest and fastest. We operated like a well oiled machine, tight and uniform. But that was just the problem: we operated like a machine. This new record has given us all the opportunity to pour our hearts into our music in a way that we felt was impossible before. Every one of us has a voice, and you will hear that through every song on this record. We went heavier, groovier, darker and more honest. I know deep down that kids are still looking for something real to fall in love with. We genuinely believe these songs are just that."

Singer and lyricist Chris Nutting also commented, "I'm so excited for the world to hear this album because every song has a catchy hook that will get stuck in your head. That has always been a huge selling point for me with the music that I listen to, and I feel that it is such an important element to have in song writing. We wanted to write an album that would not only be fun to listen to, but also be a great experience to see live. You can bounce up and down to just about every song on the record. Each one of us played a role in writing lyrics, pulling influence from past experiences. You'll be able to relate to these lyrics in one way or another. I couldn't be more proud of how this album came together."

01. Like Glass
02. Shadowcast
