Deadlight Holiday is an eclectic Alternative Rock band based out of Grand Rapids, MI. The music is best described by their fans as 'Stargaze', combining the dreamy sounds of Shoegaze and the guitar driven rock anthems of the 90's. Formed on New Years Eve in 2014 by Guitarist Kyle Panek, the bands fan base began to precede them after just uploading the initial demo tracks. Soon joined by vocalist and guitarist Shane Seppala, they began to take the band into the studio to release their first EP. Setting their sights higher, they began to writing more material for intended for a concept album, in what would later become their debut album 'The Path of Desolation'. Now working alongside producer Esjay Jones, they are currently working on a follow up album set to be released fall 2020. 

In promotion of their albums, Deadlight Holiday has independently toured the U.S. and Canada four times over. Playing alongside national acts such as The Misfits, The Birthday Massacre, Stitched up Heart, Psyclon Nine, The Genitorturers, Wednesday 13, Combichrist, and much more. The band has developed a following in the midwest alternative scene over the years, and has a devoted following. 

Activists through and through, the band utilizes it's platform to reach a larger audience than normally possible. Donating both their time and finances, they focus on fighting abuse, funding medical research, ending the exploitation of animals, and promoting environmental awareness.
