The Coursing is a high energy, new-wave, metal band hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina. Established in 2018,
vocalist (Dillon Sheets) began working on an atmospherical sound to support all of the pain, suffering, love and happiness they have endured in life and put that together through heavy emotional vocals and distinct sounds.
Drummer (Tyler Wooten) joined the band in early 2019 bringing outstanding footwork and unstoppable patterns and groove to hold everything together for what is sure to have you off your feet and leave you wanting more.
September 2021 Dillon and Tyler found guitarist (Mike Malone) With only five days of joining the group, the band had their first show with new guitarist less than 2 weeks later. Then two weeks he was playing Welcome to Rockville with the coursing.
In 2022 the band was searching for the perfect fit for the low end and found bass player (Kaje Sizemore) (KillJoy). Kaje has been in many bands before. One group he formed such as Collective Occult, With his knowledge and strengths from past projects kaje was the perfect fit for the band and everything they were looking for in a band member.
Early 2023 the band then found rhythm guitar player (Joshua Mcalister). As the band wanted to expand their mindset and explore more ways to blend more feelings, passion and movement into songs the group decided josh was the best fit for the job and a perfect addition to multiple the power that The Coursing was looking for.
