City in the Sea: Below the Noise "Is about the Struggles and Stories of Life"

Last summer, local metal band City in the Sea was included in our list of 10 Bands You Need to See This Summer. Since then, the five-piece band has been scooped up by Sumerian Records, and toured the country incessantly, including a spot on the epic production that is known as the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Tour.

They also recorded their debut album, Below The Noise, which is dropping today, August 20.

Up On The Sun talked with vocalist Jeff Christian about the band's writing process, the mayhem on Mayhem, what lies ahead.
