SeepeopleS, the original anti-genre indie act from Portland ME (formerly Asheville, NC and Boston, MA). For years SeepeopleS has been building a true underground fanbase. With critically acclaimed albums that feature members of Dave Matthews Band (Tim Reynolds), Morphine, Parliament/Funkadelic, Spearhead, and even Lynyrd Skynrd,this is a band with some serious street cred. More interesting is the fact they sound nothing like these aforementioned acts, and that musicians from across the musical spectrum have been gravitating to this band for 16 years (Band was formed in 2000.)

The band has sold over 20,000 copies of their 5 full length albums and one EP, with a second EP on the way in 2017. Over a span of 16 years, SeepeopleS has played 47 states and over 1400 shows, including sharing the stage with acts like Death Cab for Cutie, Franz Ferdinand, Kula Shaker Cracker, Blues Traveler, GZA, De La Soul, Ben Harper to name a very short few. The band has played major festivals such as SXSW, CMJ, Wakarusa, Bear Creek Festival, Hookahville and Allgood Music festival, to name a short few, and has also been featured on Sirius XM (on both XMU, JAM ON and FACTION) and countless magazine and weekly articles (Relix, Magnet Magazine, Pop Matters, Glide, Exclaim! High Times…), as well as having been spun on over 300 radio stations worldwide. The band’s music has been featured in full length movies ‘Canvasman,’ ‘A Call to Action,’ and ‘Wheels Over Paradise,’ as well as on TNT’s “Judging Amy” and ABC’s “The Gates,” as well as Sparks Energy Beer’s first ad campaign. Recently, the band finished a massive tour behind their newest release, including runs w/ UK act Kula Shaker and Tim Reynolds TR3 (Dave Matthews Band). I have posted the tour dates below.

Currently the band is in the studio recording their 7th studio album with long time co-producer Will Holland (Pixies, Fall Out Boy). SeepeopleS is also proud to announce that the video for the first single on the new album, “HATE,” is being created by renown animator Pete List (Celebrity Death Match, Marilyn Manson) and will be unveiled in late March. Stay tuned for updates!

The Grand Shell Game‘s impressive sound is genre-bending, sophisticated, and confident… an awe-worthy performance” — Mauli Desai, The Red & Black – Athens, GA

Ween meet the Beatles via early Pink Floyd as if concocted from a mad scientist’s twisted mind in the form of The Grand Shell Game. They’re one cosmic band.” — Tom Netherland, Bristol Herald Courier

Man on a Wire, the smart six-song debut from Carrboro sextet Grand Shell Game, starts from a bedrock of jangling roots rock and ponderous poetry. The songs then spin outward, taking cues from The Beatles or Lambchop, Neutral Milk Hotel or Ween in turn. Though all interesting, some of these tunes are breathless, fetching, and wild, while others turn inward for abiding reflection. Think Bombadil operating beneath a veneer of cool, The Head & The Heart with less to lose, or one of the year’s most promising local starts.” — Grayson Haver Currin, Indy Week – Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, NC
