SEEPEOPLES: APOCALYPSE COW

SEEPEOPLES ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF THEIR LONG AWAITED
3RD FULL LENGTH ALBUM APOCALYPSE COW VOL. 1

Three years in the making, Part 1 of the Apocalypse Cow
Musical saga will hit shelves on March 20
SeepeopleS announces first leg of Apocalypse Cow Tour dates


SeepeopleS
Asheville, NC-based SeepeopleS will release their third album, Apocalypse Cow Vol. I, on March 20, 2007. The band will be on tour, debuting new material from the album, from February through August, with festival appearances throughout the summer, including Wakarusa and Dogstock. Apocalypse Cow Vol. I will be released on the band's own imprint, Razcalz Recordz; produced by Will Holland (The Pixies, Devo), the album was recorded at Chillhouse Studios in Boston, MA.

*Check out the brand new video for the single, "Apocalypse Cow," from SeepeopleS' new album: here.

Since the band's original lineup reunited in late 2004, this four-piece sonic rock outfit has been steadily and quietly taking hold of live music fans and headphone recluses alike with their trademark mix of psychedelic rock, pop and ambient styles that attacks your ears like a freight train and leaves fans wondering how a four-piece can create such a robust, detailed sound in the live setting.

Bandleader Will Bradford captains the ship on vocals, keys and guitars. Bradford's guitar technique occasionally recalls the subtle nuances of The Verve's Nick McCabe and the intensity of Radiohead's Johnny Greenwood, but remains entirely his own and couples with his soaring vocals to create the band's unique sound. On bass and vocals, Berklee-trained Dan Ingenthron has earned his own cheering section in the live setting, leaving a small clot of fans with mouths agape in his wake after every show. Tim Haney, a touring drummer since age 14, ravages his kit with passion, acuity and old fashioned brute force. Rounding out the lineup is Peter Keys, long-time touring keyboardist for Parliament Funkadelic, who can only be described as a true musical virtuoso.

Collectors and mavens know SeepeopleS for the treasure trove of eclectic guest appearances, memorable songwriting and major label-worthy production aesthetic that appears on the band's albums, each an interesting gem in its own right. SeepeopleS' last release (2004), The Corn Syrup Conspiracy, won critical praise nationally for its polished production value, as well as its attention to songwriting and cohesiveness, and its cameo appearances by musical virtuosos Tim Reynolds, Dana Colley (Morphine), Dave Shul (Spearhead) and members of Parliament Funkadelic. The album, in fact, boasts the last known commercial recording of the late Ray Davis, Parliament's signature booming baritone vocalist.

Continuing in the tradition of creating great albums, Apocalypse Cow Vol. I is no exception. "It is the first time we have ever recorded a real string section for some of the songs," explains bandleader Will Bradford. Featuring 17 new tracks ranging from straight rock n' roll, to SeepeopleS' inexplicable sonic creations, Apocalypse Cow Vol. I marks a huge step in the evolution the band, and their most ambitious release to date.

The album hits shelves on March. 20, with a full load of tour dates announced in support of the release, including appearances at Wakarusa 2007 and Dogstock Festivals.

Yea yea! These guys deserve WAY more attention. Some of the most intelligent and addictive music being performed today, with an over-the-top live show to boot. Make sure you check out the shows, they just got new lights and they have a video screen with a huge trove of images and videos at their disposal. Some of the juxtapositions of song and screen are unforgettable.

And Apocalypse Cow will continue their run of excellent studio albums!

nice! these guys rock. i also enjoy as a cincy native how they listed southgate house on the 4/5 show as Cincinnati, when it is in Northern KY. Nelson Ledges is totally worth traveling for also

This is a very talented band all the way around. They may be a little harder edged than your normal jamband, but they meld genres so well. Songwriting is dark, but top notch stuff

great band, less jammy than most jambands, but that doesn't take away from the experience at all. go see them if they come to your town.

One of the best bands in the southeast right now. They have a modern psychedelic sound with a great lyrical style, giving them an alt-rock sound, and they also feature great instrumental jams.
