The Seas is a four-piece rock band from Southeastern Kentucky. Formed in late 2009, Michael Sliter, Logan Powell, Jeremy Williams and Richard Sester began creating music that juxtaposed a heavy and aggressive style with textural, atmospheric elements. Taking inspiration from such bands as Nine Inch Nails, Tool and Deftones, The Seas have forged a sound that is powerful and emotional, crafting their own premium blend of metal, alternative, progressive and industrial genres.
On August 30, 2011, The Seas released their debut album, “A Separation.” Recorded at Groove Studio in Berea, Kentucky, “A Separation” showcased the band’s musicianship and creativity. The album carefully weaves moody and melancholy tones with progressive riffs and odd time signatures into a refreshing and accessible style that defines The Seas signature sound.
The Seas kicked off 2014 by winning the iHeartRadio Lake Cumberland Battle of the Bands. Shortly after, they entered 13 O’ Clock Studios in Richmond, Kentucky to begin tracking their second full-length album. Released on August 30, 2015, “Give up the Ghost” emanates The Seas distinctive sound with polished songwriting and standout performances, sure to excite both new listeners and long-time fans. The group went on to win “Best Rock Band” at the 2016 Lexington Music Awards.
On stage, the band delivers an authentic, high-energy performance with every ounce of the layered, dimensional sound heard on their albums. They have shared the stage with national and regional acts and have performed at Jubilo Arts & Music Festival, Master Musicians Festival and other top venues.
