It has been just over 6 years since Orange County, California’s Seedless released their debut album, Twisted Roots. With a new record that has been several years in the making, the line-up that fans grew accustomed to hearing on Twisted Roots has since drastically changed for the September 30th release of The Orange Album.
As reported back in March, it was announced that original Seedless guitarist/vocalist, Casey Sullivan, along with bassist Grant Rivera, would be leaving the group. Seedless would continue on using the name while the group is now fronted by remaining vocalist, Matthew Liufau, joined by original drummer Shay Pino, Joe Bakhos on guitar and Anthony Wells on keys.

The announcement of Casey and Grant leaving the group was a bit of a shock as fans of Seedless had been anticipating a follow up to 2010’s Twisted Roots with the much discussed release of The Orange Album. Because The Orange Album had been in production for several years, most of the songs had Casey Sullivan featured on vocals with Grant Rivera on bass. While a few of the songs on the album will include Casey, I was told that following their departure, much of the remaining songs were re-worked to accommodate their absence with Seedless moving forward.
What we do know about the new album is that it includes 11-total tracks, recorded at 17th Street Recording Studio in Costa Mesa, CA working with producer Lew Richards. There’s a special guest appearance by Dan Kelly of Fortunate Youth on the track “I Want To Know.” The record will drop independently on September 30th, 2016 before rocking a hometown album release party on October 1st at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA.
Seedless will take their new live show, and album on the road through Texas with Hawaii’s Inna Vision before hitting New Mexico and Arizona to close out their month of touring in October.
