SELDOM is an alternative/hard rock band from Houston, TX with the sole purpose of creating unique music coupled with a high intensity, energetic live experience. From the band’s beginning in mid-2013, Mitch, Matt, Carlos, and Bryan were inspired to write songs that were engaging and were different from one another to not only reflect their individual styles and inspirations, but also to make sure that each song could stand on its own and tell its own unique story. The songs that came from those writing sessions vary In musical, lyrical, and emotional layers. From a crowd energizing punk-inspired song (“Plastic Idols”), to an ethereal ballad that crescendos into an emotional explosion (“Over and Over”), then a bass-driven monster (“Awoke to Darkness”), and a hard hitting rock anthem (“Cancer”). Each song flows seamlessly from one to the other.
In that short amount of time, Seldom has built up a legion of fans, which has allowed them to share the stage with many great bands. Seldom has opened up for Lacuna Coil, Drowning Pool, Flyleaf, Eyes Set To Kill, Saving Abel, Smile Empty Soul, Nothing More, Straight Line Stitch, Parabelle, Era 9, Emperors and Elephants, Day of Reckoning, and have appeared at SXSW. After having successfully funded their album via tremendous fan support on kickstarter, the band is now finishing up recording its first studio album, “Damaged”, and plans to begin touring in support of that album very soon. SELDOM has turned its sights towards conquering the rest of the state and the nation…are you ready? [+]
