SEETHING AKIRA release their long-awaited debut album ‘Sleepy Skeletor’ on 29th June.
These Pompey crossover mentalists are rising stars and with the new album set for release on 29th June, huge things are expected from them in the future. Their high energy, wild metal rave show is definitely one to catch and has been their driving force over the past few years, culminating in the release of this fabulous album.
Seething Akira are a 5 piece crossover band from Portsmouth on the south coast of the UK. Created back in 2011, Charlie Bowes (writer and vocalist) and Kit Conrad (lead vocalist) decided they wanted to create a hybrid band of electronic synths, guitars and “Beastie Boys” style vocals. The guys have been working tirelessly over the past years to fine tune their sound & get out and show they’re unique style and live show whilst supporting the likes of Skindred, The Qemists, Hacktivist, Senser, Don Broco, Pop Will Eat Itself to name a few, as well as playing Bloodstock Festival, Victorious Festival, Breakout Festival, Mammothfest amongst others.
Anyone who’s ever seen them live will attest to their crazy wild & wonderful live show, if you like your music full on, high energy and body shakingly irresistible, this band is most definitely for you.

“SEETHING AKIRA hit me up about 6 years ago to ask if my then band Victory Pill would do a remix for them, which we did!…after going back and forth a few times with ideas, the band ended up asking if I’d be interested in producing and mixing the tracks. I really liked the energy, diverse nature and dedication the band had and obviously my band background meant I could see what they were trying to do and I wanted to help.
I respected the fact they were doing it 100% themselves without any label backing so I decided I’d get involved and try and help them realise the sound they were after. Mixing rock and electronics elements isn’t easy but the band were really responsive of all my input so between us i think the album has come out really strong…bloody good luck them i say!”
Jim Davies (former Prodigy/Pitchshifter)
