Seedy Jeezus once referred to as “The Bearded Shamen of Riffology” take the beast that is 60s psych and meld it to the throbbing corpse of 70s rock.
The band found its feet in 2015 with the release of its Debut album, which was followed quickly by an etched tour 12” and a 7” single. Since that time the band has released 2 studio albums, 2 etched tour 12” records, 4 x 7” records, 3 cd E.Ps, a limited 12” bonus release and 3 x Live albums. They’ve shared lineups and stages with Earthless, Freedom Hawk, Radio Moscow, Ufomammut, Chelsea Wolf and others…
Seedy Jeezus have since forming spent there time pushing themselves and there sound to wherever they think it will stretch to. Have explored styles and vibes and are constantly working to evolve. Lockdown may have put an end to a lot of bands, and slowed things for Seedy jeezus, it gave them a chance to work on new material, albeit via the internet.
The upcoming release of ‘The Hollow Earth” , a double LP live recording in the studio, captures a band raw, rough and excited to be gigging again. It was a blow out the bowebs moment for them. Inviting a group of friends and fans of the band along to a closed session in a studio, having a bbq and catching up after all the lockdowns, gave the band the chance to record it…. and see how it went.
The event was captured, and the band opted to release it all as a set. This included a 20 minute version of ‘ How ya Doin’ and new material written for the next album ‘ Is there all that is’ and The Hollow Earth’. So if you’re curious to the direction of the next album ? Theres a hint.
2022 - well this is a crazy time to live… as for gigs and touring, that like many things are up in the air. The band has goals to get back to Europe to tour, and to NZ… and to get Tony reed over to record the next studio album, but as the year slowly progresses, 2023 is looking more like a viable option.
So while you sit for the next studio album, you can be assured there will be more releases to come before that, as well as gigs and shows.
