Seas of Mirth

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Friday 23 rd March 2018

PizzaExpress Live (Birmingham)

Seas of Mirth are a salty-smelling mega-unit of sea-dwelling reprobates land locked countless occasions this decade, as well as mainland Europe, and numerous festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival, Boomtown and Secret Garden Party to name a few. The folk- based instruments cater for the rustic part of the sound, while the playful song writing, effects and arrangements embrace the wilder element of the music. All marinated in maritime. Songs can feature gargantuous mythical beasts that sometimes appear on stage, chants of mutiny, tales of severe intoxication and the old heart-crushing love monologue. T-fashioned tug of war as well.

“Utterly bizarre… thoroughly entertaining”

The Monograph

Nautical rockers Seas Of Mirth have been causing quite the ruckus at shows and festivals across UK and Europe for the last five years or so. A nine-strong crew with a varying sound, their new album "Hark, The Headland Approacheth" is out this summer on Nottingham's I'm Not From London label. Think folk instrumentation, prog-rock silliness, worldly rhythms and bizarre sea-based song concepts. Seas of Mirth have played Glastonbury Festival, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown Fair, the main stage at Beat Herder Festival, Bearded Theory, Alchemy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe and a barrel-full of other summer shindigs.
