Tragic Hero Records' latest recent signing, Canadian metalcore band The Northern, has released a music video for "Nauticus," featuring Michael Labelle of A Skylit Drive.
Guitarist Eric Leblanc commented, "'Nauticus' fully encompasses the entirety of our collective musical personality. We wanted to take the best of what's new and the best of what we love to evolve and shape our sound into what you hear in Nauticus and the album (Solstice)."
The Northern was founded by Leo Valeri and Nick Papageorgiou when they were on the road with their former bands and got talking about their musical tastes which they realize were quite similar. The band first formed for fun and was not intended to be a live band. After the strong response to their Imperium EP, they decided that the band was more than just a hobby and started to focus more on making this a full time job. The band is now rounded out by Jordan Gallant on guitars, Adam Linka on drums/vocals and Gordon Campbell on bass.
