Seething Akira Fights Their ‘Internal Antagonist’
Out Now Via FiXT
Defiant six-piece nu-metal rockers Seething Akira turn introspective with their punishing new nu-metal single “Internal Antagonist.” The aggressive single pushes the hardcore group into even more turbulent wavelengths featuring thrashing guitars waylaid into frenetic and at times outright chaotic synthesizers. Heavy rhythms push the single along at a furious pace; thoughtful and provocative lyrics showcased through an explosive rap/rock vocal performance illustrate further a mental war of the wills when you feel like an imposter in the midst of your own success. The track is a perfect illustration of Imposter Syndrome, where you feel that you don’t deserve where you have managed to get, even though you have worked extremely hard to achieve it.
“‘Internal Antagonist’ is a documented case of imposter syndrome,” states Seething Akira. “The feeling we’re an imposter in our own skin, and the environment we have earned to exist in.”
Explosive. Bombastic. Defiant. Intense. Seething Akira continues to rock on with their gloriously turbulent nu-metal sound towards their next album, Nozomi. Hot off the editorial success of their last album Dysfunctional Wonderland and with recent appearances at the Heavy Music Awards 2022, TECH-FEST, the Hammerdown Festival, UK TechFest, Amplified Festival 2022, an upcoming appearance at the Hairy Dog, in Derby, UK headlining their free Road to Derby event, an appearance at Apocalypse Summer Bash at Bristol, headlining at Southampton, and a recently featured single on the hit Meta Quest VR game Smash Drums with “The Fallen”. With the announcement that they are joining Confession Of A Traitor on selected dates for their UK tour, Seething Akira is not slowing down any time soon.

Explosive. Bombastic. Defiant. Intense. Seething Akira have developed a gloriously turbulent sound that is uniquely their own. Founded by vocalists Charlie Bowes and Kit Conrad, Seething Akira are a 6-piece electronic nu-core band hailing from the seafront city of Portsmouth, UK that have been tearing venues apart across Europe with their powerful fusion of genres since 2012.
The band’s first full-length album, Sleepy Skeletor, dropped in 2018 and made it clear that Seething Akira would be a force to be reckoned with in the years to come. In late 2020, the band launched a series of new singles leading up to their second album, the highly anticipated Dysfunctional Wonderland. With the strength of the band’s music and their popularity with fans rocketing skyward, they connected with electronic rock label FiXT and forged a partnership for their future releases.
Seething Akira has been featured on the Rock Hard Spotify editorial list, while their single “Firepower” landed on Kerrang Radio and Scuzz. “I Am The Devil” and “The Islander”
were both featured on BBC Introducing, and “The Islander” premiered on Soundsphere Magazine.
At home and on the road, Seething Akira have also put their stamp on staple festivals such as Bloodstock, Victorious, Camden Rocks, and many more while touring with bands like The Qemists and The Algorithm. The band dropped the latest album Dysfunctional Wonderland in late 2021 and are now releasing new singles in mid 2022 in the build up to their new album.
