Evolution often happens at just the right time. Six years deep into their career, Seaway progress the patented pop punk prowess that put them on the map with sharper songcraft and a nod to the nineties on their third full-length record, Vacation[PureNoise Entertainment]. The Ontario, Canada quintet—Patrick Carleton[rhythmguitar, co-vocals], Andrew Eichinger[leadguitar, backing vocals], Ryan Locke[leadvocals], Adam Shoji[bass],and Ken Taylor[drums]—confidentlystep up their game across the board, while maintaining the spark that ignited a fervent fan base.

“The new music still sounds like Seaway,” explains Andrew.“It’sgot that party vibe, and it’s fun, but some of the songs are more mid-tempo. There are some more rock aspects influenced by bands we love like Weezer and Third Eye Blind. I felt like was just a matter of time before those influences came out. It’s pop punk at the end of the day. However, it’s just a little different. We sat down and talked about it. We had more time to put into this than in the past. It’s the first album where we weren’t juggling full-time jobs or school. It was a natural progression.”

It's one the boys have been working towards since their formation in 2011. Along the way, they released two energetic and explosive records—Hoser[2013]and Colour Blind[2015]—andchurned out hits such as“BestMistake” and“SabrinaThe Teenage Bitch,” which both cracked the 1-million mark on Spotify. Consistently averaging over 160K streams per month, they toured with the likes of Simple Plan, Neck Deep, and Four Year Strong between landing acclaim from Alternative Pressand more.

Coming off the road, they switched up the recording process by alternating extended pre-production sessions with different producers for the first time. After working with longtime collaborator Derek Hoffman in Canada during January, they retreated to Massachusetts for a week with Four Year Strong’s Alan Day before holing up in a Los Angeles studio to record with Mike Green[AllTime Low, Sum 41, Pierce the Veil] and Kyle Black[SensesFail, Five Seconds of Summer].

“We were very fortunate to work like this,” Andrew goes on.“Thepre-production definitely helped polish the songs and make them what they are now. Because we had that time, being in L.A. was smooth sailing. We didn’t have to write that much in the studio. That was nice.”

The lead single “Apartment” opens the record with galloping guitar, fiery percussion, and an undeniable chant. He reveals,“Iwrote that song about being at home when we’re not on tour—because you’re not there long enough to get a real job but you also don’t have anything to do. It’s the last couple of days before leaving for the road and spending time with a loved one or someone you’re in a relationship with.”

Then, there’s “Neurotic”. The skittering guitar splinters into a shimmering refrain that’s impossible to shake.“It’sa straight nineties alternative pop song,” he elaborates.“Somepeople think we’re rockstars living the rockstar life. We worked super hard to get to where we are. It’s about two sides of touring. When you’re gone, you wish you’re home. When you’re home, you wish you were on tour.”

Elsewhere, “ScatterMy Ashes Along The Coast Or Don’t” [featuring Caleb Shomo] snaps from a guttural groove into a bludgeoning stomp. “We all contributed to the song lyrically, which was really cool,” he states.“That was a first. Because it was so collaborative, it felt right to put Caleb on the song. His voice was perfect.”

Ultimately, every element represents an evolution for Seaway as they arrive with their brightest, biggest, and boldest work to date.
“I want people to feel that we’ve progressed as a band,” Andrew leaves off.“Wethink this is the best form of Seaway we’ve been able to put out there. We hope people see that and have a good time while listening to it.”
