SEEPEOPLES ANNOUNCE TOUR DATES
ECHO MOUNTAIN LIVE TAPING WITH PGROOVE, BELE CHERE
DOGSTOCK, APOCALYPSE COW 2, WILL SOLO SHOWS WITH TIM REYNOLDS


SeepeopleS
SeepeopleS has announced a run of tour dates along the East Coast, starting this coming weekend, with two festival appearances. First, the band will join a stellar lineup of bands converging on Malvern Kansas, Friday July 27 at the Dogstock Festival, in an effort to raise money for the Akita Adoption and Rescue Foundation. Other acts include the venerable Leon Russell, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Papa Mali and many more. The band will then scurry home to join a massive musical undertaking at the Bele Chere Arts and Music Festival, in their hometown of Asheville, NC, Saturday July 28.

This year's Bele Chere, quickly becoming the largest street festival in the Southeast US, includes performances by Rusted Root, Karl Denson Trio, Gin Blossoms, JJ Grey & Mofro as well as good friends Perpetual Groove, to name a short few. Later in the evening SeepeopleS and Perpetual Groove will join up for a private acoustic taping of a joint live performance at Echo Mountain Studios (for future release), located at the heart of downtown Asheville. Unfortunately tickets are not available to the public, but rumors abound of a very special Will Bradford and Friends performance with "very" special guests at Hannah Flannagan's Outdoor Stage in Asheville the very next day, Sunday July 29 at 6 p.m. Please visit the SeepeopleS message board at www.seepeoples.com to catch wind of more info for this very special weekend.

Following this chaotic weekend, SeepeopleS continues their East Coast Tour in Raleigh, NC, at the Pour House, August 22. The Run will take them back to New England, where the band was formed in 2000, with shows throughout the Northeast. Highlights of this run include a set at Musefest (Ithaca 8/24), University Fest (SUNY Binghamton 8/25), a co-bill with good friends Backyard Tire Fire at the Paradise Lounge in Boston August 31, and a special two night Labor Day Weekend Musical Extravaganza sponsored by Sam Adams, September 1 (Roots of Creation opens) and September 2nd (Boombazi opens) at the Big Easy in Portland, ME. Tickets for the two night stand at the Big Easy are available now at the band's website and at Bull Moose Music Locations throughout the Northeast.

In additional news, preceding the tour, SeepeopleS' frontman and main songwriter Will Bradford will open two shows for Tim Reynolds, August 17 at the Visulite Theatre in Charlotte, NC, and August 18 at the Handlebar in Greenville, SC. Aside from touring with Tim Reynolds in the past, Reynolds guests on several tracks on the band's second album, the Corn Syrup Conspiracy. Don't miss these rare solo acoustic performances by Will Bradford.

SeepeopleS is also very excited to announce the release of their third music video, for "Don't Panic," the first track off their new album, Apocalypse Cow. Vol. 1. The video, which was produced by Pat Haney, Victoria Karol, and SeepeopleS, is the most ambitious video project the band has undertaken, and follows the band's recent cult success with their video for the title track off the new album, Apocalypse Cow, which featured the band "dressed to kill," and the now famous cardboard instruments. The video for "Don't Panic" will be unveiled on the band's website (www.seepeoples.com), MySpace (www.myspace.com/seepeoples), and you tube on August 6 (Will's Birthday), so be on the lookout.

And lastly, the band is back in the studio at the beginning of September, continuing their work on Apocalypse Cow Vol. 2, which is tentatively planned for release in Spring of 2008. The band, of course, is back in the saddle with co-producer Will Holland (Pixies, Dead Can Dance) at Chillhouse Studios in Boston. Holland co-produced the band's first three critically acclaimed albums.

>>What is there music like?
- If I were to take a stab at it, it's part 90s alternative (equal parts Smashing Pumpkins/Jane's Addiction), part dub, part breakbeat, all within the context of very songwriting. I'm a big fan, check em on Myspace. Looking forward to SeepeopleS/Backyard Tire Fire in Boston, should be a killer night.

yeah thats a tough question. album to album is really different. the third one is the worst I think.
the first one has some good tracks, kinda dub, spacey funk.
the second album has better tracks, some are even zappa flavored. I am still not sure what to think. I have only listened to the albums, and the most recent was I don't know what, it was......... odd. almost pop. I dunno. I could not get past three tracks before giving up.

I like the third album alot. It's more song oriented. I think it definitly shows another side of the band, I used to think they were kind of a jam band. Definitely go see the live show, it's very different from the albums...really rocks
