"The Seen's melodic but driving sound situates itself between post-hardcore indie rockers like Thursday, Omaha's own Cursive, and bigger pop punk leaning acts like Say Anything. This is big sounding guitar rock delivered with impassioned vocals." (The Reader | 2/2/2012)
In the spring of 2012, The Seen's dynamic and energetic live shows led to their selection as opening act of the 4th Annual MAHA Music Festival headlined by Garbage and Desaparecidos. After their MAHA appearance, the band spent the remainder of 2012 with Rick Carson at Make Believe Studios producing their self-titled debut. The Seen has created a complex album that echoes their wide ranging influences, exploring themes of redemption and new beginnings.
