“A funny band that makes serious music is terminally fucked from the start." - Morgan Troper, Portland Mercury (April 1st, 2015)
Nowadays, SEACATS are best known as a D-list Seattle indie-rock band, fronted by the duo of brothers Mike and Josh Davis; however the band's roots go back much farther than that. All the way back to 2008, when Mike and Josh created an internet comedy show in their small hometown of Kelso, WA. Slowly, what was primarily comedy-focused transformed into something more well-rounded artistically. Close friend Jordan Cole joined and the group took on the form of a rock band when they started doing live shows in 2009. The band has become more of a collective in recent years, exploring a wide variety of mediums including: performance art, video, narrative theater, live improv, as well as releasing 3 full-length records.
THE BOX FOREVER (November 2017)
“yes, there are still Korn jokes, [...] but suddenly somewhere in the middle they start singing thoughtful songs about God, finding peace, dealing with personal anxiety, and confronting feelings of self-deceit. And lo and behold, they’re some of the best songs the band has ever written. “ -Kelton Sears, Seattle Weekly (September 2014)
On November 24th, 2017 SEACATS released "The Box Forever" (or as I like to call it, "The Forever Box"). The cassette comes courtesy of Seattle-based label Noise Noise Ouch Stop Records. "The Forever Box" is a tape compilation of the last two SEACATS digital releases. Side A features the LP "Songs from The Box", and side B features the EP "SEACATS Forever". The cassette comes w/ a custom-designed, reversible j-card and tape label featuring updated art for both releases! The Box Forever" also includes the brand new SEACATS single "My Shoes".
"My Shoes" is the band's first new track of 2017, and the first preview of the new full-length the band will be releasing in 2018. “My Shoes” was mixed by indie-pop darling Darwin Deez, and features ARP 2600 synthesizer on the outro by legendary Seattle producer Steve Fisk.
