Floor US Tour

Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of the widely-respected underground rock band FLOOR. FLOOR (Steve Brooks – Guitar, Vocals, Anthony Vialon – Bass, Henry Wilson – drums) recently reunited on the heels of their career retrospective ‘Below and Beyond’ boxset, and are preparing to enter the studio for an imminent release.

Regarding the signing, guitarist Anthony Vialon said: “Breaking up in 2003, FLOOR got back together in 2010 to tour in support of their “Below & Beyond” box-set. We’d noticed that our fan base had grown exponentially and doing a new record, kind of picking up where we’d left off, was something we agreed we should focus on. Their staff are fans of the band and since we seem to appeal to multiple genres, we believe Season Of Mist will be able to help us with that.”

FLOOR was originally formed by Brooks and Vialon in 1992, and issued singles on respected underground punks labels like No Idea, Bovine, Rhetoric and more. The band released their wildly influential self-titled full-length album in 2002, before splitting. Brooks went on to form another critically-acclaimed band: TORCHE, while Wilson formed DOVE.

Additionally, the reactivated band will hit the road for short run of dates before they enter the studio. The run will begin on March 26th in Charlotte, NC and conclude on April 10th in Birmingham, AL. Support on all dates comes from Joe Preston’s THRONES.
