The Appleseed Cast
The Appleseed Cast is Radio 1190’s first ever Artist of the Week!
Originally founded under the name December’s Tragic Drive in Southern California, (a name inspired by seminal midwest emo band Sunny Day Real Estate) The Appleseed Cast didn’t hit their stride until they moved to Lawrence, Kansas – go figure. In terms of genre tags, emo fits the bill just fine, but like their idols they also tend to display shades of post-hardcore and post-rock. Lead singer and guitarist Christopher Crisci has also done work in the folk-rock group Old Canes. The band has put out 7 albums since their debut The End of Ring Wars, perhaps their best-known record, was released in 1998, including a concept album about the sea titledMare Vitalis and the critically acclaimed albums Low Level Owl Vol. 1 and 2.
The Appleseed Cast will be playing the Hi-Dive on July 16th. Get your tickets here
