About this project

You wouldn’t think rock and roll music when you think of Latvia. It’s not two things that normally go together. RELICSEED from Riga, Latvia is looking to change all of that.  The band has gigged around Latvia since 2004 and is ready to dip their big toe in the USA. Relicseed will test the waters with three shows in California in December 2011. The plan is to full on take the USA by storm in March and April of 2012. That includes recording their second album in Los Angeles. Relicseed wants to criss-cross the USA and bring their music to the eager masses!

Edgars is the lead singer and guitar player for the band. One of his songs is found in a film by Martins Janson about skaters. Karlis is an accomplished session musician. He also owns KS Records, a recording studio where many Latvian bands record their music. Janis plays the accordion. But for Relicseed, plays bass. But if you ask him nicely, we can get him to play accordion for you. Andrej plays drums. He hits things. (What more do you want from a drummer?!)

Four independent but still common minds and souls are the main features that make the essence and attitude of RELICSEED`s music. “We don’t care about the structure or anything – we care about the feeling”, says the band.

Although Edgars (vocalist and rhythm guitarist), Andrejs (drummer), Karlis (solo guitarist) and Janis (bass) have been playing like a complete four piece less than a year, RELICSEED as a band has been around since 2004 when three other members and Edgars started jamming in a small and smelly rehearsal room. During six years of sound, groovy playing manner and some band member experimentation; a pure, no compromise metal eclecticism was born.

The long awaited debut album 60 Minutes of A Dream was released on December 3, 2010 and the band went on their first mini tour around Latvia. You can get that album here: http://relicseed.bandcamp.com/album/60-minutes-of-a-dream  One of the last shows in FONTAINE PALACE (Liepaja, LV) seems to have been a push in the bands career and a change of a lifetime. What followed is the contract with a record label, opportunities to record the next album in USA and the most unexpected – offers to tour around the United States.

The goal here is to raise money for recording that next album and help out with touring expenses. We promise not to use all the money on Twinkies, hot dogs, and Starbucks! Just some of it! LOL Everyone that donates gets exclusive video content. Watch the album getting made. Video “confessions” from the band. Tour diaries. Be there every step of the way as Relicseed record and tour!
