SEERD Releases Empowering “I Won’t Comply” Single

When was the last time you heard of a Rock/Metal band that has a former elementary and middle school principal as its lead vocalist? When was the last time you heard of a Rock/Metal band with father and daughter vocalists? When was the last time you heard of a Rock/Metal band that formed from the staff and parents of an Armenian elementary school? Well, Central California Rock/Metal band SEERD, has all three and is now looking to make a serious dent in the rock and metal world. Vocalist Curtis Shamlin formed SEERD by recruiting all its members from Charlie Keyan Armenian Community School in the Fresno, California area. Mher Ezekian and Robert Gonzalez were both parents, Kayla Shamlin was the volleyball and soccer coach, and Curtis Shamlin was the principal/superintendent.
