announce The Seagull Has Landed
‘Run To The Hills’ new video
Steve ‘N’ Seagulls have confirmed ‘The Seagull Has Landed’ UK tour for October following their sold out tour May UK tour.
Steve ’N’ Seagulls exclaimed their “Last UK tour was a blast. We were thrilled by the audience every night. It over-exceeded our expectations. Next time we´ll hit even harder in the North.” Let the hillbillification commence……..
Steve’N’Seagulls also get their Iron Maiden on with their latest cover, from their Spinefarm Records debut album Farm Machine, a rousing folked out version of Maiden’s ‘Run To The Hills’
Less than a year ago Finnish hicks Steve ‘N’ Seagulls broke through with their extraordinary version of the AC/DC classic “Thunderstruck” on YouTube, turning the hard rock classic into skiffle playing instruments including saws and hammers and gaining over 12 million views:
After having hillbillified further rock classics, the country cousins signed a recording deal with Spinefarm Records/Universal Music and in less than 12 months they’ve recorded their debut album, Farm Machine and whipped up a huge worldwide following already prior to album release.
The 13 song album, Farm Machine entered the BillBoard Bluegrass Album Chart on position #3. Not only that, the album also appeared on BillBoard’s New Artist and Independent Charts.
S’N’S comprises an acoustic guitarist/vocalist; a banjo player; a double-bassist; a big dude wearing overalls and a beaver hat playing mandolin/keyboards/accordion/whatever-he-gets-his hands-on; and a cajon-straddlin’ percussionist – and they have delivered a 13-track album featuring rural riffs and villager vocals, filled to the brim with “hillbillified” versions of immortal heavy metal standards including Iron Maiden’s ‘The Trooper’, Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Paradise City’ and Metallica’s ‘Seek And Destroy’ among others.
In September Steve’N’Seagulls bring their unique bluegrass style to the London Acoustic Show for two shows. Held at London’s Olympia’s Conference Centre on September 12th and 13th, the Finnish bluegrass folksters will appear on both days, for two main stage performances and a meet-and-greet to celebrate the release of their debut album Farm Machine.
As foot-stompingly enjoyable as S’N’S are on record, you haven’t seen anything until you’ve experienced them live.
