Blind Scryer are a stoner metal/rock band from Louisville, Kentucky, active since 2016. Forming from the ashes of other Louisville bands, Blind Scryer have adopted a stoner rock sound with fiery riffs and soaring vocals.

Since their inception the band has mainly played in Kentucky with their debut studio album released March 2019.

HistoryEdit

Blind Scryer formed in the spring of 2016 by Blair Yoke, Jeff Smith, Jeremy Stein and Trent Combs. From there the band began writing a host of songs and not long thereafter had their debut live performance at Modern Cult Records on 3 June 2016 alongside RHIN, Rat Ship and Day Creeper. From there the band began to compose more songs and perform out more often in the Louisville and Lexington area. Eventually in early 2017 the band would recruit River Jordan as a second guitarist, becoming a quintet.

On 3 June 2017, the anniversary of their first live performance, the band announced they had studio material in the works set for a 2017 release.[1] On 27 July 2017 the band uploaded their first demo track "Snake Handler" on YouTube. The next day they would upload the song "Slow Movin'". On 5 November 2017 the band uploaded a three-song demo to Bandcamp with a full-length in the works.

Blind Scryer would spend the next year performing regular shows in the Kentucky area, occasionally branching out to other states. On 19 February 2019 the band would announce their eponymous album set for a 29 March release, with the song "Backslide" available for streaming. The band completed a five-date tour lined up surrounding this album release. The band would follow with several local festival appearances and a five-date tour with Dirtbag.
