Sylar have been dominating the music scene lately, not only with new tracks but also with their killer performances on stage. The band formed in 2011 and quickly started pumping out material. They released the EP ‘Cutting Ties’ in the same year as their formation, and followed it up with another EP in 2013 titled ‘Deadbeat’ produced by Caleb Shomo (of Attack Attack!). Sylar then released their debut album ‘To Whom It May Concern’ a year later via Razor & Tie. This is the album that truly got the bands feet firmly planted in the music world. With powerful and emotional tracks like “Prescription Meditation’ the band put a little bit of themselves in each track. The New Yorkers went on to sign with Hopeless Records and one up themselves releasing ‘Help’ in August of 2016. This would give them one of their biggest hits thus far in “Assume”. The album charted as high as 8th in Heatseekers Albums in September of 2016 on Billboard.
Sylar has been lighting up stages this festival season playing Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion and Rock On The Range. The borders of our great United States didn’t stop their festival takeover either. The band also ended the month of May by playing the Slam Dunk festival in England alongside notable acts like Neckdeep, Bowling For Soup, Against Me and many more. As if that wasn’t enough they also are playing 3 dates in Japan which wraps up tomorrow. Then it’s back to the U.S. to kick off the Van’s Warped Tour in Seattle on June 16th. If they come to your area make sure to check them out. We had the opportunity during their busy schedule to catch up with them at Carolina Rebellion. We caught up with vocalist Jayden Panesso, and vocalist/guitarist Miguel Cardona and talked to them about the upcoming tours, competition amongst bands at festivals and their nu-metal inspiration.
