Canadian pop punkers Seaway are no strangers to the UK and have done their fair share of tours over here, but this year they’re finally heading out on a headline run. We don’t know about you, but we’re definitely stoked to catch them on this tour, so we decided to have a quick chat with them beforehand. Find out what you can expect from the quintet on this tour.
MOSH: What are you most excited about for your upcoming UK tour?
Seaway: Really excited about coming back to some of my favourite cities. Toronto will always be number 1 but the kids in the UK go wild and we have a blast every time we play here. Our set at Slam Dunk North in 2015 is still one of my all time favourites!
MOSH: How does it feel knowing you’re headlining venues you’ve previously played at as support?
S: It’s pretty awesome but also quite nerve racking! We’ve been supporting tours for a while now so its cool to be able to be longer sets in places we’ve played as support but never headlined.
MOSH: What have you been busy with since you were last over here?
S: We’ve done a couple tours in North America since the last time we were over here! Our first Canadian headliner with our friends in Coldfront and Rarity and a US tour with The Wonder Years, Real Friends, Knuckle Puck and Moose Blood!
MOSH: How did you decide to take out WSTR & The Gospel Youth on this UK tour?
S: We actually hadn’t met either of the bands before the tour! We heard about WSTR a little while back through Neck Deep and felt they’d be a good fit on the tour. Our good friend Matty Arsenault told us to check out The Gospel Youth and we loved what we heard! The tour has just started but we’re all super stoked to have them both out with us!
MOSH: You released Colour Blind in 2015, are there any updates for album number three?
S: Nothing official to announce at the moment but we have been writing and working on some new songs in the studio back home
MOSH: What would you say are some of the most memorable tours you have been on?
MOSH: If you could be anyone else in the band for a day, who would you be?
S: Probably Patrick so I can finally know what it’s like to be a totally jacked hunk.
MOSH: What was the highlight of 2016 for you as a band?
S: We wrapped up the year with a holiday show in Toronto which I can honestly say was my favourite show we’d ever played so I think that was the highlight of 2016 for me!
