Band Announcement: Methodical

Methodical
[New Jersey]

Methodical is a six-member metal industrial band originating out of New Jersey.
Mission Statement:
As a band, the members will remain focused, diligent, and methodical on the presentation of their message. Methodical will equally be recognized for its musical successes and its humanitarian accomplishments.
Purpose, Principles, and Goals:
Methodical was created to take a position against abuse (mainly child abuse) and bring awareness to suicide through artistic and positive forums. As a whole, the band has experienced mental, physical, and sexual abuse(s). While many victims of abuse become fatalities of the experience and continue the vicious cycle, Methodical has chosen to end it. The band will participate with charities that share its purposes, principles, and goals. With one song, one show, and one stance at a time, Methodical will pursue the opposition of abuse and suicide consistently, and not only when it is fashionable. The foundation of the band is its belief that (in place of crumbling), one can ascertain strength from a life’s events that are designed to hurt you and be stronger because of it.
“We are Methodical, we will take a stand together, united, and we will remain who we are.”

On said EP is also a collab with New Jersey’s Panic Lift called “Constructed Cold”. It was an intense club smasher that took dancefloors by storm. In 2019, Red Lokust is currently writing the follow up album “Whom the Gods Wish to Ruin, They First Drive Mad” which is due in Spring 2020.
