Yuma bred metalcore band Samsara has officially joined the roster of revered independent label Innerstrength Records, joining other rising acts like 156/Silence, Sunlight’s Bane and Machinist among others.
The band has also announced plans to release a new EP, Reap What You Sow, in Spring 2019. Details forthcoming.
Samsara consists of Dan Croutch (vocals), Billy Arviso (guitar/vocals), Vince Johnson (bass) and Daniel Castaneda (drums). With growling lows, catchy choruses and punch you in the face breakdowns the band pulls in influences from The Ghost Inside, Gideon, Wage War, and Fit For A King. Samsara’s upward trajectory began with the release of their debut EP, Bloodlines, in 2016. Following extensive touring in the U.S. the following year, the band returned to the studio to create their latest single “Illusions,” which was recorded with Cory Brunnemann (Nonpoint, Upon A Burning Body).

I can see your wicked smile As you wait perched on my shoulder You’re telling me It’s game over I slowly began to listen Allowed your words to creep in Maybe this time I’ll give in Unsure if I will win Lost!
