Fresh off the December release of their sophomore album Rocks Into Rivers, Credential Recording’s artist Seabird will be hitting the road this spring with Switchfoot, Sherwood, NeedToBreathe and more for a mix of club and arena tour dates.
Seabird will join Switchfoot starting this week in Texas for their “Hello Hurricane” tour. Beginning in March, the band will team up with Sherwood hitting much of the Midwest and West. Next up for Seabird will be dates with NeedToBreathe, Stephen Kellogg and The Sixers starting in late April running through May. The band is already confirmed for several major summer festivals including Alive Fest, Ichthus Festival, Cornerstone Festival, Creation East, Rock the Desert, Fall Quest, Purple Door and more.
“Every band at some point in their career has lied about how excited they were to be on a tour with bands that no one has heard of so it should be easy to tell we are not lying when we say how pumped we are at the way 2010 is shaping up,” admits band front man Aaron Morgan. “We have been huge Switchfoot fans for years and are truly honored to share the stage with them for part of their ‘Hello Hurricane’ tour. Following the Switchfoot tour we head out with Sherwood, who besides having a massive internet presence have an excellent new album to share with an always enthusiastic audience.  We could not be happier that our good friends NeedToBreathe have also  invited us to support them on a portion of  their ‘Won’t Turn Back’ tour.”
The first single from Rocks Into Rivers, “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful,” quickly shot up the CHR chart where it is currently No. 3. The song is also in the Top 20 on the Rock chart in addition to being released to new and active at AC Monitor this week. In the midst of radio success, Seabird is filming a video for their hit single “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful” this month.
“We are thrilled with the success we have seen with the band’s single so far and feel this song still has huge potential in front of it,” says Grant Hubbard, Vice President of National Promotion at EMI CMG. “The band’s hard work and effort in the songwriting and recording process has really paid off as we are seeing this song climb the charts at our CHR format. We are looking forward to pushing this song to the Christian AC format in the coming weeks.”
The recognizable sounds of Seabird have received support from major networks ABC, CBS and mtv U where the band’s music has been used in promotion for Grey’s Anatomy (ABC), Pushing Daisies (ABC), Numb3rs (CBS) and more. Seabird has also hit such key stages as South by Southwest, MOBFest 09, Forecastle Festival and even headlined the opening night of the MidPoint Music Festival.
Cincinnati-based Seabird comprises brothers Aaron (vocals/keys) and Ryan (guitar) Morgan as well as Preston Lane (drums) and Brandon Weaver (bass). The band signed with Credential Recordings in late 2007 and released its debut label project,‘Til We See The Shore, June 24, 2008. A collaborative effort with producers Jacquire King (Modest Mouse, Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits, Switchfoot) and Allen Salmon (Mute Math, This Beautiful Republic), the album received phenomenal national publicity, featured on episodes of “Numb3rs,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and promos for ABC’s 12-time Emmy-nominated series, “Pushing Daisies.” Their latest, Rocks Into Rivers, was produced by Paul Moak at the Smoakstack in Nashville, and Matt Hales at Ocean Studios in Los Angeles. The band was also recognized by its hometown as “Artist of the Year” at the 2008 Cincinnati Entertainment. For more information on Seabird, visit: www.seabirdmusic.com or www.myspace.com/seabird.
