Serious Matters is a 5 piece Alternative/Post-Hardcore group from Union Beach, NJ. Formed in February of 2016 by Criss Madd and Kenny Byles of Jericho Guitars with only a few demos on hand. In September of 2016 they were joined by Matt Sandelman and began recording their debut EP, ‘Can You See The Sky From Here’ with Converse Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn, NY. The release of ‘CYSTSFH’ was published on SPIMGE (Speak Into My Good Eye) and many others. In early 2017, the band was joined by Daryian Kelton of Dark Horse Percussion and TRX Cymbals. In July of 2017, the band had signed with New York based record label, Manic Kat Records. Serious Matters released a new EP titled, ‘Through It All’, mixed and mastered by John Naclerio of Nada Studios on January 5th, 2018. Through It All was released followed by music videos for songs, ‘Patterns’ and ‘Waves’. Both videos were featured on WRAT Radio, based out of New Jersey. The band following their sophomore release set out on their first two week cross country run in support of the new record. Currently, Serious Matters is writing and recording their debut LP with Kevin Antreassian at Backroom Studios in their home state of New Jersey.
