Hello Fellow Humans. Malala Yousafzai is a total badass.

Malala Yousafzai is one of two recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize this year. She is the youngest Nobel Peace Laureate and she gave her acceptance speech earlier today.  If you don’t know about Malala, she is Pakistani, she is an unabashed crusader for girls’ education and human rights, and she is seventeen years old.  Read More…

Hello Fellow Humans. Fun Fact: The Waltons are Terrible People.

I know I’m not telling you anything new when I say that the Waltons (the heirs of Sam Walton, Founder of Wal-Mart) are–at least publicly and in matters of running their business–callous, petty, greedy, and probably like, every other negative word in the dictionary.  Also their combined personal wealth is $140 billion dollars.  There are Read More…

Hello Fellow Humans. Did you know? Bono has his own private equity firm.

People really hate U2. And there is a ton of writing out there on the Interwebs about why. And yet, if “With or Without You” comes on the radio, most of us would know all the words, be able to sing along, and maybeprobably not change the station. It’s a matter of betrayal. U2 were Read More…

Hello Fellow Humans. Back in July, I got fired and then wrote about Haim.

So a few weeks ago, I was morning drunk with friends out back on the deck at Linda’s in Capitol Hill. Somehow, I ended up here with a handful of friends and the guitar player from the band Surfer Blood who, incidentally, is VERY ALLERGIC TO GARLIC DON’T PUT IT IN HIS FOOD PLEASE KTHX Read More…

This message is for you. Yes, you. I don’t think it’s too much to say that we’ve missed you, terribly. For the past three years, we’ve been underground, in our Caves of Replenishment and Hermitude, revitalizing ourselves, coming back to life from the darkest of days. If you want to know more about that, just Read More…

About

Seepeoples About / Bio

Earning glowing accolades from critics and racking up recording credits with musical virtuosos such as Tim Reynolds and Dana Colley (Morphine), there is no doubt that SeepeopleS are one of the most dynamic and unique up and coming rock acts to appear on the scene in years. Dubbed “pop in the best possible sense of the word” (Bangor Daily News), SeepeopleS’ sound is an infectious blend of pop, reggae, trance, prog-rock and ambient styles, simultaneously eclectic, tightly crafted and pioneering. Led by singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Will Bradford, SeepeopleS are an intense live act with influences including the Beta Band, Burning Spear, The Orb, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Kula Shaker.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASeepeopleS were born in Allston, MA in 2000 out of the breakup of Naked Ear recording artists Cosmic Dilemma. After Cosmic D’s demise, singer/songwriter Will Bradford, drummer Tim Haney and bassist Dan Ingenthron decided to finish the band’s outstanding tour dates. Bolstering their entry into the touring scene with momentum from the regionally very successful Cosmic D, the group changed their name to SeepeopleS and immediately got invited to the CMJ Music Marathon in 2000, sharing a bill with Cracker at the Acme Underground in NYC.

SeepeopleS released their first album, “For the Good of the Nation,” in 2002, which marked the union of SeepeopleS with producer Will Holland. “For the Good of the Nation” also featured one of Bradford’s major influences, former Morphine sax player Dana Colley, who collaborated with the band on two of the album’s tracks. Colley’s soulful contributions have since characterized a part of SeepeopleS’ sound, and he reprises his role with the band, along with Holland, on their sophomore record, “The Corn Syrup Conspiracy.”

In late 2002, Haney and Ingenthron left SeepeopleS for personal reasons, leaving Bradford with the SeepeopleS name and the majority of the band’s songs. Determined not to let his vision die, Bradford put together a group of talented musicians and took SeepeopleS back on the road for two years, building the band’s reputation as a relentlessly touring sound machine while creating and fine-tuning material for “The Corn Syrup Conspiracy.” “Corn Syrup” was released in October 2004 and features a barrage of top-notch talent including Tim Reynolds, Dana Colley, Spearhead’s Dave Shul and funk stars Peter Keys and Ray Davis of Original Parliament.
In September of 2004, the original lineup (Bradford, Haney and Ingenthron) reunited and toured in support of “Corn Syrup.” SeepeopleS have played for crowds of 22,500 and have opened for acts ranging from Franz Ferdinand, Ben Harper, the Flaming Lips, The Presidents of the USA, Death Cab for Cutie, Cracker, De La Soul, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Pete Yorn, Lotus and Blues Traveler to name a very short few. The Corn Syrup Conspiracy tour was the first time the band engaged in a full national headlining tour and have been touring as such ever since.

acowIn 2007 the band released Apocalypse Cow Vol. 1 to much critical acclaim. Headlining festival slots at Trinumeral Festival and Wakarusa festival were amongst some of the bands biggest performances. Despite the critic’s loving the album, the album was a veritable bust in the sales department and only after years had passed did the album become the legendary cult album it is today, as ALL SeepeopleS albums have become. The band was also nominated for a Jammy Award (relix magazine) for best new artist 2007, and was also featured as a “summer star” in the major summer festival June Issue of Relix Magazine (June 2007). Many reviews and interesting articles can still be found online, as over the years the band was featured in major print magazines such as Pollstar, Billboard, Relix, High Times, CMJ Magazine, Jambase, Pop Matters, Glide Magazine, Big Takeover and many, many more. In many ways, SeepeopleS are perhaps one of the most successful yet mysterious underground acts of the last 10 years. With a sound that is as much Flaming Lips and Radiohead, as it is Orb, Morphine, Muse and more, SeepeopleS have never been easily categorized or fit in any set genre. To their fans, this is the essence of their greatness.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn 2011 After a decade plus of constant touring, the band finally unveiled Apocalypse Cow Vol. 2, containing the singles “Modern Times” and “Most Famous One.” The Band shocked their fans by giving away the album for free. The band unveiled their album days after a massive festival appearance at Allgood Music Festival in the summer of 2011. Days after the performance, the band pulled their website and canceled all further dates. . In the meantime, lead singer and chief songwriter for SeepeopleS, Will Bradford did several tours with his electronic music act, Freepeoples Frequency, with acts such as Pretty Lights and more, and will be releasing their debut album, “Small Pills To Swallow,” sometime in 2013. There has been, however, much speculation as to why SeepeopleS suddenly called it quits (disappeared?), although no official announcement was ever made and their official site has been off since canceling the rest of Apocalypse Cow. Vol. 2 Tour. Although rampant rumors of severe heroin addiction and mental breakdowns have abound, the disappearance of one of America’s most promising up and coming acts remained a mystery until recently, when Bradford finally went public with his 13 year battle with heroin addiction.

Finally clean and sober, Bradford recently announced release plans for 2015, SeepeopleS 15th Anniversary. Currently, Will Bradford has teamed up with Will Holland again, and is busy finishing tracks for what will be SeepeopleS’ 5th Studio Album. The Album, a double album, is entitled “My Great Escape (The Dead Souls Sessions),” and features over twenty seven new songs recorded over the past four years. The record will be released on the band’s imprint, RascalZ RecordZ in the spring of 2015.

The band will also be announcing the first live concert appearances in almost 4 years. Following the release of the “Dead Souls Sessions,” the band has announced initial plans for the release of the first SeepeopleS box set. The set will contain all five studio albums (6 CD’s total), as well as two live CDs and a disc of previously unreleased material and outtakes from prior studio sessions. Also joining the band in the studio is former SeepeopleS collaborator Dana Colley, the legendary saxophonist from the former band Morphine, as well as members of Primus and Lynyrd Skynrd. The album promises to be the most ambitious musical undertaking the band as attempted. 2015 will be a busy year for America’s best underground rock group.
