[INTERVIEW] Sun Seeker Discuss Their Debut EP Ahead of July 14 Record Release Show @ Third Man Records

SunSeeker-620

We’ve been keeping on an eye on Third Man Records signees Sun Seeker for well over a year now, since their strong first impression with excellent debut single “Georgia Dust.” The group will release their debut EP, Biddeford, this Friday, July 14, and are set to host a release show the same day at Third Man Records‘ Blue Room with support from Liza Anne. Tickets to the all ages outing are available here, but act fast, because this one might sell out!

We can assure you that Biddeford will be one of the hottest local releases of the summer, because Third Man was cool enough to give us an early listen (you can stream it early here, and hear the whole thing on your platform of choice tomorrow!). Ahead of the show, we also had a chance to sit down with frontman Alex Benick and drummer Ben Parks, to chat about Sun Seeker and their highly-anticipated debut. Read on for our full interview, and be sure to catch the band this weekend at Third Man Friday and at Forecastle Fest Saturday, if you’re making the trek to Louisville!

Sun Seeker and Liza Anne will perform at Third Man Records Friday, July 14 to celebrate the release of ‘Biddeford.’ The show is all ages, begins at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $10-12

Catch Sweettalker, Trapped on Earth, & The Hollows | TONIGHT @ The Basement

Sweettalker-620

Who said Mondays have to suck? In Music City, if you’re willing to go out and get it, live music and fun times are there to be had nearly three hundred and sixty-five days a year. Tonight, July 10 is no different, thanks to local, Southern inspired alt rockers Sweettalker, who are headlining this low dough five dollar show at The Basement. The five-man power house recently caught our attention with their latest single, “’95,” which dropped just last week, and after giving it some heavy play this weekend, we felt we had to mention their official single release gig tonight.

Look for funk, pop-rock outfit Trapped On Earth, and blues rockers (with a touch of metal) The Hollows, to fill out this very tasty, all local bill. Tickets to this 21+ affair are available here, and the music will start at 9 p.m. (doors at 8:30). While you’re here, click on after the jump to hear little something from the bands, and don’t let the Monday blues win again this week; get out and support the local scene!

Sweettalker, Trapped On Earth, and The Hollows will perform tonight, July 10 at The Basement. The show is 21+, and begins at 9 p.m. (doors at 8:30 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $5.
