Pay attention Boise metalheads, because this Tuesday night, June 7, you have the opportunity to catch one of Canada’s top up and coming young bands at The Shredder. Unleash the Archers just wrapped up its West Coast road trip with Anvil and will be swinging through the Treasure Valley this week on their way home. Sure it’s a weeknight, but this is going to be a headbanging event not to be missed. Tickets are only $8.
Unleash the Archers released its latest album, Time Stands Still, last year to fantastic reviews. The record is easily their best and most mature effort to date. Vocalist Brittney Slayes continues to take greater command with each new release. Check out our recent interview with Slayes here to learn more about the new record.
Unleash the Archers was founded in 2007 by drummer Scott Buchanan, guitarist Brayden Dyczkowski, and vocalist Brittney Slayes. Guitarist Grant Truesdell would join in 2011. The band’s sound is founded on traditional and power metal with elements of death metal mixed in. In 2013, Dyczkowski, the band’s primary songwriter, stepped down. Unleash the Archers reached out to a friend of the band, Andrew Kingsley, who had previously played with Truesdell. Bassist Nikko Whitworth recently joined the ranks.
Joining Unleash the Archers will be Colorado metalcore act, As the Sky Darkens. The Denver based group recently released a new single titled “Solace,” which captures an aggressive, yet unique sound. The group plans to begin writing new music which is set to be released later this year. The band released its debut album, Freedom, in 2014.
Kicking it all off will be Boise’s own Tulpaa who will be making its debut live performance. Tulpaa is an open minded, darker style project of melody, black and death metal, doom, tribal, and ambient sounds featuring both with male and female vocals.
Calling all metal warriors, come catch Unleash the Archers this week as they make their return to the frozen tundra of the north. Help them celebrate a victor’s journey home, while also helping support the debut of one of our own rising new bands. Come on out and test your metal!
Showtime is 8pm. 21 and over.
