A special message to our fans and friends from the north- and southwestern states
The start of Seabound's 2015 North American tour together with Architect is getting closer rapidly now.
Over these last weeks of crazy preparations and planning, it became more and more obvious that we will not be
able to cover East and West Coast territory in one go this time.
Part of the situation is due to rather tight time ties caused by our daytime-jobs. Another part, however,
has to do with our decision to visit not only the big cities this time, but also bring "Speak In Storms" to places
we have never played before and that may not be considered "primary" by the book-keepers. Still, these places have
dedicated fans and followers who we would like to meet and play for, at last.
This is why we have made the (hard) decision to split our touring activities into two legs: We will play East Coast
and Midwest locations this year. The furthest we are going to go west will be Minneapolis/St.Paul (MN), so we won't even
make it to our dear friends in Colorado or Texas. Early next year, we will return for the West Coast.
We understand that this is going to be disappointing news for our fans and friends from the north- and southwestern
states and we are truly sorry that we can't simply extend the tour to see you this year. We promise to make it up to you though.

The first gigs of Seabound's upcoming tour are confirmed. Stay tuned for more.
Seabound announce „Speak In Storms Tour“ in North America with special guest
"Speak In Storms" was one of the electro-industrial highlights of 2014. Now Seabound have decided to tour
their successful album release in North America in March/April of this year. It will be their first U.S. shows
since 2009, when they toured with De/Vision. "The Speak In Storms Tour in Europe was our most elaborate tour yet",
states the band, "and we got some amazing fan support. We look forward to performing the new songs for the
North American audience." The band is kicking off the first leg of their North American tour at the East Coast
and the Midwest, while a second leg will cover remaining territories at a later time. Additionally the band is
bringing along a very special guest: renowned ARCHITECT,
the percussive IDM side project of Daniel Myer of Haujobb.

We are very pleased to announce the "Speak In Storms Tour", for April 2014, where we will be playing with our dear friends IRIS.
This will be a rare, not-to-be-missed event, as Seabound and Iris have not toured Europe together previously.
It is only three more weeks until the release of our new album! We are very grateful for the many positive advance
messages regarding "Speak In Storms" and would like to thank you for that! HERE you can find the first prelistening snippets ("CONTRABAND",
as well as one full song ("A GROWN MAN").
The "Contraband" snippet also comes with a small TEASER VIDEO on the YouTube channel of our label Dependent:
As you might have heard already, "Speak In Storms" will be available in three formats: a regular album version, a limited 2CD digipak version,
and a third edition. The limited digipak version includes the album and a bonus cd with the exclusive track "When She's Hungry" as well as remixes
from select music friends. The "Tempest Edition" includes the same music but doesn't come as a digipak but as a 48-page, 7" size hardcover book instead.
The full tracklist and remixer names can be found HERE.
Nico J. designed the artwork
once again. Apart from his beautiful cover artwork the 48-page book
contains the lyrics as well as additional texts written by Frank
regarding some background details of the album. And there is a little
"easter egg" to discover.
The "Tempest Edition" will be limited to 300 copies. You can find pre
order links on the RELEASES page. The "Tempest Edition" will be released
on February 14, 2014 along with the other editions.
Stay tuned, we will release more news and snippets soon. And check out

Frank and Martin are re-emerging from the studio, and they would like to
share some news and personal insights:
First of all, we would like to thank you. Though it has been pretty
quiet for a long time, you continued to keep us motivated with your
ongoing requests for the new album. Thank you for your support, it is
good to know that you did not forget about us.
We have been pretty busy with the new album. We just completed the
mixdowns for the latest song, and believe it or not: the album is done.
The new album "Speak In Storms" is finalized. The album consists of ten
songs, and we are very happy with the results.
What can we tell you about the new album? If we would have to
characterize it in a single sentence we would probably say "It has
become a Seabound album." And: The album does not contain a single song
that we were not completely satisfied with, making it difficult for us
to name any favorites.
The songs are pretty diverse, and the music ranges from atmospheric and
cool to powerful and warm. If you attended a Seabound show last year,
you have already listened to some new songs from the album.
"Contraband", "Nothing But Love" as well as the opener "For Life" will
be featured on the album. We were surprised how well the songs work
together in the context of the album and how coherent the album has
turned out to be.
The lyrics delineate a relentless and intrepid journey into a
psychological abyss. The own past turns into a threatening labyrinth,
and dealing with it becomes a dangerous undertaking. Nightmarish
scenarios, revenants and lost souls, fateful encounters, and the quest
for identity. Each song is multifaceted giving different answers, some
hopeful, some resigned, others lurking, and ruthless. The characters of
"Speak In Storms" are out for a quest, on the run, they are hunting
night and day. "Speak In Storms" is a declaration of war against
compromise and mediocrity. High stakes are on the line, storms will be
sparked. Time is running out.
Nico J. (ACRETONGUE) created the artwork of the album. The final track
list for the bonus CD is still in progress. The track list for the
regular album is HERE.
The album will be released by DEPENDENT Records in Europe and
Records in North America, most likely in February. There is a good
reason for pushing back the release date until next year, which we do
not want to keep from you: We were asked to either finalize and release
the album this year or to release it with a bonus CD as a limited
edition, with material from other artists. The limited edition would
require a release date next year. Obviously, we could not resist and
opted for the limited edition which also gave us more time to work on
details. So in a nutshell: There will be a two disc limited edition of
"Speak In Storms", and we will wait with you until February.
