Formed in 2017, the metalcore band Seasons started out with five dedicated musicians that all have a strong passion for performing energetic shows and crafting top-notch influential songs. Seasons is a high-level, crowd entertaining band that will not disappoint when it is time for performing on stage. Drawing from influences by bands such as Wage War and Attila, Seasons delivers blistering riffs combined with brutal vocals and ripping drums as the recipe for their music. Whether in front of 15 people or 1500 people, Seasons is known for the exact same stage presence which is described as “in your face.” With each member being a veteran to performing, you can expect tight transitions and an overwhelming stage presence. Every member of Seasons strives to put on a memorable performance to thrill the crowd. Check out our interview with the band!
Randall: The band was formed by Matt Poe (bassist) and Matt Gregory (previous member). They hounded me to come to play with them for several months until I said yes. I was actually on a classic rock/country cover band trying to make some money lol. Metal is my passion so I made the move over to Seasons. We started practicing in a garage in New Kent Va. We then had several member changes until we found our nights in shining armor, Nick, Mark, and Josh!
Behind the name:
Nick GK: The name Seasons has to do with the elements associated with each season of the year. Summer represents fire (heat) while winter represents cold. Spring represents life while fall represents death. All of these elements together constitute the environment we live in. The way we think of the band is that each member brings certain elements to the band that are critical for the band’s success. And like seasons throughout the year, the band is constantly changing. I think we are always evolving, learning, and growing to become better performers and artists.
Nick GK: We’re big music fans. Our guitar heroes and bands that have come before us I think are big inspirations for us. When we see what another band is doing out there on a national or even international level, I think it is the motivation for us to want to be doing the same thing. We tend to think that nothing is out of reach for us, so when we see national acts playing huge shows or festivals, the first thing we think is ‘How can we get ourselves on that stage?’. I think that mentality has helped to propel a lot of our success.
I think with the new stuff we have coming out the inspiration just came from wanting to write something new in this weird time in music.
This stuff is different from anything we’ve ever done before. I think when you are always trying to do something new musically rather than repeat what you’ve done in the past, it keeps you excited about what you are creating.
We treat each song like it’s our baby, and honestly creating them flows naturally with this group.
Friday the 13th:
Nick GK: It’s an incredible honor to have our song featured on Friday the 13th Soundtrack. We’re all big horror fans and especially big fans of the Friday the 13th series. We’re really grateful for this opportunity from the director, Jason Brooks and we can’t wait for the movie release in the fall of 2021.
Matty P.: It had affected our ability to play shows and tour as it has everybody else. I know that’s a big part of this game but past that it’s been business as usual.
Nick GK: Online concerts are something we’ve talked about. I think the thing that holds us back from that is that we haven’t figured out a way to deliver the intensity of one of our normal shows through an online concert yet. When we play live we want the audience to walk away really feeling like they got their money’s worth, so we do a lot of headbanging and jumping around and just show a lot of energy. Our other guitarist, Mark, actually gets in the pit for one of our songs. So if we did an online concert we would have to figure out how to deliver that same experience for the viewers.
Joshua W: My last name Woolcott means “to live in wolves cottage”, and I’m naturally ambidextrous!
Matty P.: I am directly related to Edgar Allen Poe. He’s an uncle to me down the line. I’m also afraid of raccoons and for good reason.
Nick GK: I have a really long tongue. I can stick my tongue up my nose if I want to. Gene Simmons, I’m coming for you!
We are just as excited as you are about future events and moving forward both in music and a regular lifestyle. So let’s hang in there, send a smile, and support each other!Joshua W
Keep your eyes peeled for the new Friday the 13th film, Friday the 13th: Vengeance 2 is set to be released this coming fall!Nick GK
