Serious Matters is a four piece alternative/ post-hardcore band from Union Beach, NJ. The group was formed in 2016 by Criss Madd and Kenny Byles (Jericho Guitars) with only a few demos on hand. Later that year they were joined by Matt Sandelman, and began recording their debut EP, 'Can You See The Sky From Here,' at Converse Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn, NY. The release of 'CYSTSFH' was later published on 'Speak Into My Good Eye,' along with many others. In early 2017, the band was joined by Daryian Kelton (Dark Horse Percussion and SoulTone Cymbals). The band then released a new single that June, entitled 'Used,' that was mixed and engineered by Joyn Ferrara of Portrait Recording Studios. In July of 2017 the band signed with New York based record label, Manic Kat Records.
