Canada's five-member band Seaway make exuberant punk-pop and emo-rock. Formed in Oakville, Ontario in 2011, Seaway originally featured the talents of vocalist Ryan Locke, vocalist/guitarist Patrick Carleton, guitarist Andrew Eichinger, bassist Adam Shoji, and drummer Ken Taylor. Following the recording of several EPs, the group made its full-length album debut with 2013's Hoser. From there, the band garnered supporting slots with Major League, Driver Friendly, and others.
By summer 2014, they had signed with Pure Noise Records and delivered a fourth EP. The following year, they toured with Bayside and made appearances at several festivals including the U.K.'s Slam Dunk Festival and the Warped Tour. In October, 2015, Seaway returned with their sophomore album, Colour Blind, featuring the singles "Freak" and "Best Mistake." Well received, the album peaked at number three on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart. The band then joined the Wonder Years, Knuckle Puck, and others on tour.
In 2017, they delivered their third studio effort, Vacation, featuring production from Mike Green (All Time Low, 5 Seconds of Summer, Semi-Precious Weapons). Included on the album was the lead single "Apartment." Also that year, they covered the Chainsmokers and Halsey hit "Closer" for Punk Goes Pop, Vol. 7. ~ Matt Collar
