Fozzy (feat. Chris Jericho) Signing

Fozzy will stop by Seasick Records to sign copies of their new album "Judas" this Saturday, August 25th at 12pm!

Tickets for their show at Saturn Birmingham are available here: https://www.saturnbirmingham.com/event/1693500-fozzy-judas-rising-tour-birmingham/

The band Fozzy has really always been about one thing: having fun. What started out for guitarist Rich Ward as a weekend cover band soon became an internationally signed act with the biggest star in professional wrestling, Chris Jericho, as its lead singer. Their first few releases still had Fozzy playing covers but with adopted stage names and a backstory written for the movies. When you have such high-energy performers like Ward and Jericho – it still is debatably on who jumps higher, Ward on stage with his guitar or Jericho in the ring – creating a ‘for fun’ band was easy, however Ward and Jericho aren’t just entertainers. Ward is probably one of the greatest and unjustly so, underrated riffers in rock and metal today. Jericho singing ability and overall passion for music makes one wonder just how he is able to find the time to excel in pretty much everything he does. It was these qualities that pushed the band to drop alter egos, get rid of the backstory and write original music. 

Over the course of the next 7 years, the band did just that; three albums worth to be exact. The records were fit in between Jericho’s wrestling, TV and writing career. It wasn’t until 2012’s Sin & Bones though that the band really started to hit their stride. Jericho was winding down his involvement with sports, the band was touring more than ever before and their live show was as strong as ever. The entertainment, the fun factor, the showmanship were all there and in full force. More so than any point in their band’s career.

Austin Lucas In-Store Performance

Austin Lucas has come home.

It's been over two decades since the songwriter packed his bags and left Bloomington, Indiana, the Midwestern town where he spent his childhood years falling in love with rock & roll, embracing his punk roots, and standing his ground whenever intolerant locals didn't understand his way of life. He returns to that place—both creatively and physically—with his seventh studio album, Immortal Americans. Written after a tumultuous period that found Lucas getting sober, supporting his partner through a battle with cancer, and breaking up with his longtime record label, Immortal Americans is a clear-eyed album for murkier times, rooted in stripped-down heartland rock songs that find the artist reflecting upon the changes in both his hometown and himself.

Austin will perform in-store at Seasick Records on Friday, August 31st at 6pm. Come pick up a copy of his new album “Immortal Americans” - out now on Cornelius Chapel Records.

Rose Ette In-Store Performance

Rose Ette are stopping by Seasick Records on their way back to Houston, TX (via Athens Popfest) to deliver a free in-store performance. The band features members of Wild Moccasins (also very good) and will be sure to leave you feeling slinky. Did we mention it's FREE?!?

More info: 

Rose Ette debuted their fresh take on indie-pop in 2015, and have since established themselves as one of Houston’s most exciting new bands. 

They captured their guitar driven sound on Jungle, their debut
EP on Miss Champagne, by mixing the shoegaze influenced sounds of the Jesus and Mary Chain with a girl-group vocal style to create something lo-fi, melodic and unpretentious. Since then, the band spent most of their time perfecting their craft, opening for the likes of Deerhoof, TYVEK, Fred Thomas, Dressy Bessy, Peach Kelli Pop, La Luz, Chris Cohen, Baio of Vampire Weekend, Shilpa Ray and Austin psych-rockers The Black Angels at the grand opening of White Oak Music Hall.

In 2017 the band released a single, entitled Skin, which received praise, earning them a slot on Free Press Summer Festival with the likes of Frightened Rabbit, Portugal the Man and The Shins.

“Rose Ette is the perfect band for the kind of early spring Houston has been having: warm, breezy, ideal for picnic or patio listening.” -- The Houston Press

Erin Rae In-Store Performance

Join us for an intimate stripped down set by Erin Rae before her full-band show later in the evening at Secret Stages Music Discovery Festival! Her new album "Putting On Airs" is available now via Single Lock Records.

Purchase tickets to Secret Stages here: https://www.secretstages.net/tickets/

Growing up in Jackson, Tennessee, Erin Rae got an early introduction to folk music at home. Her mom and dad were both part-time musicians, playing their own brand of American roots music at churches, county fairs and coffee shops in west Tennessee. Starting as early as five years old, she would join them for a song or two.

Two decades later, she's still spending her time onstage — this time as the main act. Erin and company released her full-length debut, Soon Enough, independently in the US in September 2015, receiving glowing support from long-time tastemakers at NPR music (All Songs Considered + year’s end “Songs We Love” list), Rolling Stone, The Fader, and more. The success of her independent release in the US lead Clubhouse Records UK to pick up and release Soon Enough across the pond in June 2016. With continued support from NPR, BBC, countless music bloggers, and support from fellows in the Nashville community like Margo Price, what might have been a blip on the indie radar has proved to be a career shaping record with life left in it, even a year later.

With two UK tours under her belt, and another single released last fall (Playing Old Games feat. Pete Lindberg), Erin Rae is kicking off 2018 in a big way. She recently partnered with Single Lock Records to release her forthcoming full-length album, Putting On Airs. Recorded at the Refuge, a beautiful, historic Franciscan monastery-turned-creative space on Wisconsin’s Fox River, the record is set to be released on June 8, continuing the tradition of songwriting by Erin Rae that is deeply personal, and universally relatable.

The Posies

The Posies

In advance of their upcoming show at Saturn Birmingham, Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow of The Posies will deliver a special electrified duo performance at Seasick Records! 

This is a milestone year for the Posies, fronted by Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer. The band began its career exactly 30 years prior by releasing a home-recorded cassette called "Failure", which to their complete surprise became an instant favorite around the Northwest, earning them critical accolades, radio airplay, and major label interest all in a very short time. 

The band went on to sign with Geffen records where they were label-mates with Nirvana and Sonic Youth, and steadily built a following around the world via their infectious hooks and furious live shows. They even backed up Big Star (and that performance, Columbia: Live At Missouri University, is a Seasick favorite)!

To take this anniversary celebration around the globe, the Posies, who have had a few lineup changes over the years (always based around the founding duo of Auer and Stringfellow) will be on tour as the 1992-1994 lineup that made "Frosting on the Beater", their breakthrough album — Jon and Ken will be complemented by drummer Mike Musburger and bassist Dave Fox. It’s been almost a quarter century since this quartet has been on the road, and recent warm-up shows have been as explosive as those played by the twenty-somethings of yore.

Neighbor Lady In-Store Performance
May

6:00 PM18:00

Neighbor Lady In-Store Performance

Neighbor Lady stop by Seasick for an in-store performance to celebrate the release of their new album "Maybe Later"!

A missing link between indie-rock and classic country western, Atlanta-based Neighbor Lady is comprised of Emily Braden, Jack Blauvelt, Merideth Hanscom, and Andrew McFarland. Led by the siren voice of front-woman and songwriter Emily Braden, Neighbor Lady began as a solo project. She began writing music by herself and for herself; lyrically, the songs chronicle events in her personal life and her emotions surrounding those events.

Having grown up on a farm in pastoral Rome, Georgia, she moved to Athens, Georgia after high school, met guitarist Jack Blauvelt and formed Neighbor Lady, a small band centered on supporting Emily’s songwriting. As Braden puts it, “Neighbor Lady started because I was too nervous to play a show by myself, so I asked my friends to play with me.”

Neighbor Lady’s debut LP Maybe Later consists of 7 songs that introduce the band’s foundations of country-kissed indie-rock in a poignantly sweet and evocative style — the album shifts fluidly between the dreamy, stripped-down, aching melodies of just Braden and her guitar, to the powerfully noisy and fiery hooks of the full band. Neighbor Lady’s momentum is indebted to their blend of a powerfully dynamic band paired with Braden’s soaring vocal melodies, creating a sensation both comforting yet heartbreaking in the same moment. You’ll feel compelled to put “Let It Bleed” on endless repeat. And there’s an immediate Southern element to Neighbor Lady, emanating from Emily’s voice (which has been compared to Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Kate Bush and Nancy Sinatra), some of Jack’s pedal steel-esque guitar melodies, the slower 2-stepping rhythm in the song “I Wish Nothing,” and the fire in songs like “Fine” and “Silently Separately.”

Matthew McNeal In-Store

Matthew McNeal stops by Seasick for an in-store performance at 3PM! Come pick up a copy of his new album a week before it's official release!

After years of touring in support of the 2015 debut 'Compadre', McNeal and longtime drummer Andre Black return with 'Good Luck', an LP recorded by Grammy award-winning Ted Young (Kurt Vile, The Rolling Stones). Backed by an all-star band, the album weaves in and out of genre atop the analog hiss of a 1971 tape machine. Matthew McNeal delivers inventive storytelling over a groove-laden soundtrack, sonically mirroring the dynamic landscapes seen while weaving across the country.

Striving to bring analog sounds and high-caliber songwriting into the modern era without gimmick, Matthew and long-time drummer Andre Black teamed up with Israel Nash and his band at Nash's Plum Creek Sound studio in the heart of the Texas hill country. With Grammy award-winning Ted Young at the helm of a 16-track tape machine, the group spent four days recording nine tracks that would become 'Good Luck', Matthew's second studio album. The collection of work presents a youthful take on analog production, blurring the lines between genre with inventive musicality and lyricism with a sense of clarity.

During the record's 34-minute runtime, a listener is due to experience the edge that alternative music carries, the unbound emotion of soul, and the raw energy of rock & roll. Good Luck will be released on February 16, 2018 through McNeal's own Matte Black Sound Company.
