Appleseed Cast Tickets
Details of Appleseed Cast and the Ticket Luck value
An indie rock band based in Lawrence, Kansas, the Appleseed Cast currently comprises singer/guitarist Christopher Crisci, guitarist Aaron Pillar, bassist Marc Young and drummer Aaron Coker.
The band formed in 1997 in Southern California with Crisci and Pillar joining bassist Jason Wickersheim and drummer Louie Ruiz. The following year, the band signed to Deep Elm Records out of New York and released their debut album.
The band's debut album 'The End of the Ring Wars' met with considerable approval from the emo and underground scenes. In 1999, the band moved to Lawrence, Kansas without Ruiz, hiring new drummer Josh 'Cobra' Baruth.
The same year, they entered the Red House studio in Eudora, Kansas with Producer Ed Rose who went on to produce their next four records.
Mare Vitalis was the band's second full-length album that showed progression from the dynamics-heavy rock of The End of the Ring Wars.
Essentially a concept album on the movements of the sea, the album proved out to be a fan favorite. After touring Mare Vitalis, the Appleseed Cast once again entered the studio in late 2000.
They started working on what would be their most ambitious project to date. Eager to fulfill their five record deal with Deep Elm, the band embarked on a double LP at the helm.
The Appleseed Cast released low level Owl Volume One on August 21, 2001 with Volume Two following on October 23. The songs were woven seamlessly together into album-length soundscapes while the pieces containing vocals and lyrics were connected by ambient-influenced instrumentals.
The band followed their Low Level Owl project with the release of Lost Songs the next year. The album was a collection of songs recorded shortly after the release of The End of the Ring Wars.
The band signed with the New York based indie label Tiger Style Records in 2003 and released Two Conversations shortly afterward.
Some viewed the album with dismay, regarding the more conventional song structures, the less diverse sonic palette and the personal, relationship-driven lyrics. However, others saw the album as an assured combination of the driving emo-rock of their early work.
Throughout late 2004 and 2005 little to no word traveled on the band's current situation. This began to change later in the year as the band began to audition new drummers.
Part-time Old Canes drummer Aaron Coker was selected and later went on to tour with Reggie & The Full Effect. With a new drummer in place, the Appleseed Cast was signed by the Militia Group in 2005.
When asked about the next album in a recent interview with Chris Crisci, he said, 'Well, the idea is still there, although it has morphed into a mostly instrumental full length. There are songs that have 45 seconds of vocals and 6 minutes of instrumental.
There're songs that are entirely instrumental, and there's one song with complete vocals that clocks in at about 2:30'. A release date for the new record, Sagarmatha, is February 2009.
