BI·AS Feat. Former KORN Drummer DAVID SILVERIA Drop New Music Video ‘Hesitation’ via MetalInsider
Orange County alt-metal outfit BI·AS, featuring David Silveria (original drummer of Korn) shares their latest music video for their next single ‘Hesitation’. The single is a preview to their much-anticipated debut EP due out in 2020. ‘Hesitation’ gives an early taste of what the record will bring to the table. This is the first song that singer Rich Nguyen wrote with the band during their worldwide singer auditions. The song is about anxiety and how it can cause a lot of missed opportunities; if you let it. The song talks about overcoming the barriers created by anxiety in your mind and pressing on no matter what. ‘Hesitation’ is an anthem of overcoming anxiety and is meant to be a musical affirmation.
Rich Nguyen describes ‘Hesitation’:
“This song in terms of sound is the exact middle ground between “Pity” and “Change Your Mind”. It has tons of melody and a smidge of aggression musically and vocally. Fans of the other two singles won’t be disappointed.”
Teaming up with MetalInsider.net, the video premiere for ‘Hesitation’ can be viewed at the following link here.
BI·AS made a big splash with their first single, ‘Pity’, which came out in January. The track rapidly reached #23 on the Billboard (BDS) Indicator Chart and #9 on the Foundations (SMR) Chart. They have already reached 85,000 streams on Spotify and another 33,000 on Youtube. Meanwhile, ‘Hesitation’ stands on its own as a hard rock song with touches of metal influence and a driving chorus to bring it all home. The video was directed by Matt Zane of Lord Zane Productions. BI·AS will also be hitting the stage on August 9th at the legendary Whisky A Go-Go as direct support for industrial rock legends ORGY. Event details can be found here along with more dates listed below.
Looking to the future, BI·AS have finished writing their debut EP and follow up effort. They are looking to get into the studio with producer Chris Collier (KXM, Prong, Korn) in Q4 of 2019 to get all tracked. BI·AS have cultivated a growing fanbase enamored with their modern twist to the late nineties Nu-Metal sound. Suffice it to say – the upcoming record promises to be a showcase of the band’s unique sound and willingness to take sonic risks outside of today’s standards.
Be on the lookout for BI·AS in the future, not only is the band gearing up for the 2020 release of their new EP, but they are currently booking shows till the end of the year.

“Whether we know it or not, we all have our own version of BIAS…” BI·AS is an Alternative Hard Rock / Metal band based out of Huntington Beach, California. The band, featuring drummer David Silveria (Korn), bassist Chris Dorame (Gears, Needlemouth), guitarists Joe Taback (12 Gauge Embrace, Needlemouth) and Mike Martin formed after a worldwide vocalist search lead them to recruit Rich Nguyen (Dimtribe). The band’s diverse musicality is backed by Silveria’s signature groove and neatly wrapped together by captivating vocal melodies.
The debut singles (Pity & Change Your Mind; released January 4, 2019) were met with tremendous fanfare. “Pity”, the edgier track of the two, has helped grow the band’s following exponentially in the United States and abroad. “Change Your Mind”, showcases the band’s softer, melodic side. The two singles were released as a SIDE A / B; a throwback to the 80’s and 90’s single releases.
BI·AS is currently hard at work writing and recording material for their debut release, tentatively slated for the latter half of 2019.
