QUIESCENT MANTIS Are Swarming The Road For A “Fight” – New Single + Tour Dates w/ Summoner’s Circle, Nameless Anonymous
L-R – Johnny Mejia – Drums, Chris Trainor – Guitarist / Backup Vocals, Jordan Mckenzie – Bass and Vocals
American death thrashers Quiescent Mantis are getting ready to be road warriors and fight their way through the stretches’ of highway from city to city as they will be supporting Summoner’s Circle alongside Nameless Anonymous for a ten-date tour that will kick off in Charlotte, NC on March 9th and wrap up on March 23rd with a hometown show in Knoxville, TN (all dates listed below).
And before they make their way across six states, they are sharing a new instrumental single to get fans ramped for the mosh pit. Entitled “Fight”, the track was produced by Yanic Bercier and is off Quiescent Mantis’ upcoming yet-to-be-titled album for release later this year. It’s a song for those to escape from everyday life and give a unique experience to lose themselves in the twists and turns of it. The band explains further:
“With it being an instrumental, we believe the song tells a story on its own in the way it changes, swivels, and turns will push the listener through a war as carnage rips through the field. We believe will catch the attention of the fans due to its unique riffage and unrelenting tone of aggression throughout the track.”
Quiescent Mantis was born to take heavy metal sounds and cross-pollinate them with old-school science fiction movies, campy lyrical vibes, and solid groovy riffs. The furious trio is represented by guitarist Chris Trainor, bassist/vocalist Jordan Mckenzie, and drummer Johnny Mejia who came together to deliver one face-melting lick after another while the ground below them shatters with breakdowns.
To date, Quiescent Mantis has released their debut EP “Chapter 1” in 2021 and while they find their niche has gone from a more traditional thrash sound to a truer heavy metal sound with paper shredding leads, earth-shaking bass lines along with almost machine-like drumming. They aim to provide a unique experience with a mixture of old-school thrash and new-school metal techniques such as breakdowns, which will be prevalent on their first full-length album.
Fans of Orbit Culture, Power Trip, and Havok will be especially interested in what Quiescent Mantis has to offer.

For more info:
Former scientists Chris Trainor, Jordan McKenzie, and Johnny Mejia were previously employed by Sub-atomic Weight of Acceleration Research Mechanics or S.W.A.R.M. While working on a project involving particle collision the team inadvertently tore open a brief doorway to the mantis homeworld exposing themselves to a mind-altering pheromone in the process.
The trio is now obsessed with opening the portal permanently allowing their mantis overlords access to our world; they are harbingers of the Swarm, selected to terraform and prepare Earth for the coming invasion. Wielding mighty instruments of sonic assault they herald the approach of the swarm of the brutal blend of thrash death metal and hardcore. The Swarm has slumbered in exile for far too long, the gates are ready to open, and it’s time to join the Swarm!
