New Jersey hard rockers SYKA made their debut on the scene on New Year’s Eve 2011 opening for Halestorm, playing songs from their upcoming self-entitled debut album. The band formed in late 2011 with lead vocalist, Syka, and guitarist, X, waiting to find the right chemistry before taking it on the road. The band is named after the lead vocalist, Syka, who said, “We had all of the music written, rehearsed, and ready to go-- we just needed that power duo on drums and bass to complete the lineup.” With the addition of Sgar (Bass) and Stryker (Drums), the band launched on New Year’s Eve and has been touring around the NYC Metropolitan area since. Recently, ‘Love Sick,’ the first single released from the upcoming album, was spotlighted by Jonathan Clarke, DJ at New York’s Classic Rock Station, Q104.3. Not only was the song presented on Q104.3, but SYKA was also chosen as one of the top unsigned bands in the NYC area. This has led to an abundance of opportunities for the band in a small amount of time. On July 11, 2012, SYKA will be performing at Tammany Hall along with two other finalists chosen by Clarke hosted by Q104.3 and sponsored by Cabo Wabo Tequila.

We are doing the same before taking that next step with a label. In the meantime, we are having the time of our lives!!” For more information, visit www.syka.net.
