Northern California-based Lakes is lead by vocalist/guitarist Seth Alan Roberts, formerly of Christian indie rock band Watashi Wa, who released a record on Tooth & Nail before breaking up in summer 2004. Roberts had formed a new band called Eager Seas and put out a record through Tooth & Nail, but it was released under the Watashi Wa moniker in early 2006. After parting ways with Tooth & Nail, the new lineup of Roberts, guitarist Jason Massey, and bassist Roger Tompkins signed to The Militia Group and changed the band's name to Lakes. Their debut EP, Photographs, was issued in September 2006, though with Erik Brunner on bass and Jonathan Russo manning drums; the album featured guest vocals by Mike Herrera of MxPx and Aaron Marsh of Copeland. It would be another four years before the band issued their debut album The Agreement in 2010. Working independently on their own Armacost Records, Lakes continued to take their time, carefully writing and recording thier follow up Fire Ahead which would appear in the summer of 2014. ~ Kenyon Hopkin
