“Excellent … Think Pavement and the side of Sonic Youth that knew how to smile. What must irk David Line and company is that they have consistently made better records than many of their heroes. This album continues their strong run” – The Eye (The Times) ****

“Their finely crafted songs shine through” – Independent

“A stunning collection of noise and beauty” – Q ****

“A gloriously bittersweet record” – Observer Music Monthly

“Stepping out of the noise, they’ve discovered a talent for emotionally resonant melodies, tinkling and hypnotic grooves of delicate yet angry rock, never losing sight of the song … they’re standing tall with this LP” – Time Out

“Shimmering with majesty … Seafood are masters of understated, lo-fi rock that never strays into self indulgence.” - Rock Sound – 8/10

“’As The Cry Flows’ is the sound of a band falling back in love with melody” - Logo ****

“This album is a magnificent inclusion to any balanced record collection and should be obtained by any means possible” – CMU Update

Friday 8th October sees the release of the “Sleepover”, the new single from Seafood. Taken from their critically acclaimed third album, “As The Cry Flows”, the single will be available on two formats – CD single, featuring 2 extra tracks - “Heat Walks Against Me (acoustic)” plus the previously unreleased “Old Friend”, and a limited edition 7” single which features “Milk & Honey (live – from Virgin Radio session)” and an interview clip on the b-side.

“As The Cry Flows” is out now

  "As the Cry Flows" is Seafood's third album, but their first for Cooking Vinyl. It heralds a broader, braver direction, containing piano, Hammond and Wurlitzer played by Ed Harcourt, plus pedal steel guitar, synthesisers and gong. Seafood have always loved melody and dynamic, now they have honed the intensity that was always there and have made a cohesive album with each song an illustration making up a bigger story. It promises to be their richest and most direct sounding album yet, which is best summed up by David himself: "Previously we hid our songs behind the noise. Now we are hiding the noise behind the song."

Lyrically (all lyrics will be displayed in the sleeve artwork for the first time) ,David Line has found a new confidence, reflecting the bands weirdest year yet. The result is Seafood's richest and most direct sounding album yet, which is best summed up by David himself: "Previously we hid our songs behind the noise. Now we are hiding the noise behind the songs".

  UK tour re-schedule for April and May

New Single “Good Reason” (FRYCD189) released 19th April
New album (COOKCD295) released on 3rd May

“Summer Falls … their best single yet” – Claire Sturgess, XFM

Seafood have announced that they will be releasing a new single, “Good Reason” on Monday 19th April. Taken from their forthcoming album, “As The Cry Flows” the single will be available on CD and as a limited edition 7” single, both previously unreleased tracks, as follows :

CD – Good Reason / The Last Outpost / Soul Up

7” single – Good Reason / Confidence Trick

Short and to the point, “Good Reason” is Seafood’s first vitriolic song of hate, written on the spur of the moment and reflecting the outburst of anger David felt when someone very close to the band broke their trust and let them down. The accompanying video features bizarre footage of the band playing the song under David’s sheets whilst he lies ill in bed recovering from recent surgery.

Seafood’s recently postponed tour has now been re-scheduled. Three additional dates have also been added, and the second London show has been moved from the Bar Academy to the Carling Academy. Tickets already purchased for the shows which were postponed are still valid.
