We're having a party! you all may have noticed that this year is the 5th anniversary of our SEACATS self-titled album. So we are making this August SELF-TITLED ANNIVERSARY MONTH, and we're having a RETIREMENT PARTY for the record. to celebrate we will be doing three things:
1. a SEACATS anniversary livestream on August 24th, where we play the album live in its entirety AND go in-depth into the behind the scenes of the album. we'll be taking Skype calls, answering questions, as well as interviewing some folks who were important to the making of the record.
2. a live self-titled-themed Vanfest set on August 25th, with all kinds of jokes and pranks just like you like, and some very special production elements (fire? maybe not, it might not be allowed)
3. after this date all of our music from this album and before will be RETIRED FROM THE SEACATS LIVE SHOW for the foreseeable future. It feels like time for us to turn the page and focus on the new stuff we are making. But not without celebrating it (big time) before. So if you want to see Wrecked, Minus World, UR NEW BF, Firewood or any of the hits live you better make it out baby. **we reserve the right to revoke this and play the songs whenever we feel like it, they are our songs after all.**
a lot has changed in those five years, and it feels right to take a moment to pause and celebrate what was a big milestone this record was for us. the process of making this record was extremely formative. working with Steve was life-changing and commuting back and forth so much to Seattle for it (and the friends we made doing it) were a big part of why we ended up moving to seattle at all. It is also definitely still our most listened to piece of work (I don't get it y'all, Songs from the Box is much better ;)) and so hopefully this will be fun for you as well. More info to come, as well as more self-titled goodies to be posted in the coming weeks.
