Remember when Canadian pop-punk act Seaway covered The Cars’ “Just What I Needed” and it totally kicked ass? Well, it looks like the band isn’t quite finished with their 80′s styling just yet as they have just announced the release of their brand new album Big Vibe.
Set to hit stores October 16th via Pure Noise Records, the band’s first full-length release since 2017 will see them tackle a whole new sound.
“We can’t wait to introduce the new era of Seaway,” the band said. “Big Vibe is the record we have been working towards our entire careers. For this record we threw away usual conventions of the scene and genre and just made the record we always wanted to make. As usual for Seaway, it is a dynamic collection of sound and inspiration that bleeds through from track to track. Big Vibe is a feeling that doesn’t let up throughout the entire record, and we hope you feel it in your entire body.”
Giving listeners a taste of what this new era might just sound like, Seaway has also premiered their infectious title track. Commenting on the single, the band shared, “As the title track of our new record, we believe ‘Big Vibe’ is the most encompassing track on the album, as well as most representative of where Seaway is at this point in our career. Inspired by 80’s power pop, lyrically this song continues what Seaway has been known for, while musically pushing us to new dimensions. It’s got a windows down, volume up feel that is omnipresent throughout the whole record.”
