Infamously known as the loudest sound-producing insects in the world, Cicadas are even more enigmatic in that they dwell deep underground for over seventeen years before surfacing to shed their larval skin and unleash their deafening song onto an unsuspecting world.
This is the philosophy that drives Kansas City powerhouse, SICADIS (pronounced Si-kay-diss), a band that has thrived and evolved in the city's underground and is now ready to break through the concrete and be heard. Their debut full-length, Blood of a Thousand Hearts, was unleashed upon the masses in early 2012. Album track "Through These Eyes" features guest vocals from Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch. SICADIS has accepted awards for Best Metal Band, Best Guitarist, Best Live Performance, and Best Guitar Duo at the Heavy Frequency Awards and the Project Backstage Awards in Kansas City, MO. They have shared stages with such acts as Five Finger Death Punch, Testament, Unearth, A Life Once Lost, The Agony Scene, Suicide Silence, Exodus, Despised Icon, Napalm Death, Strapping Young Lad, and many more. The band combines the forces of Brett Carter - Vocals, Cam Fitzmaurice - Drums, Andrew Nagorski - Guitars, and Dustin Johnson - Bass, are all veterans of the Kansas City music scene.
