The Black Seeds

Bio

Originating from Wellington, New Zealand, The Black Seeds have carved out their reputation through platinum selling albums, a masterful live show, and a sound that fuses infectious grooves and melodies with undiluted roots music. With numerous European festival tours behind them, and a successful 2009 North American album release, their following continues to spread quickly around the globe.

Led by the vocals of Barnaby Weir and Daniel Weetman, at its core The Black Seeds music is a boundary-crossing sound fusion of big-beat funk, dub, soul, mixed with vintage roots-reggae.

Described by Clash Magazine as "one of the best reggae acts on the planet", their legendary 8-piece live show brings the raw energy and good vibes wherever it goes. They have countless sell-out New Zealand and Australasian tours behind them, and regularly perform at many of Europe and North America’s biggest festivals.

Lyrically The Black Seeds music expresses messages on different levels. Personal triumphs and failures, the fear of love, death, apathy, and relationships, give a personal insight into the lives of the musicians. Ultimately though, their songs are always under-pinned with an underlying positivity and optimism.

Headquarters is, and always has been, the Surgery Studio in the capital city of Wellington. A former Karate Dojo and condemned building, the band’s sound engineer Lee Prebble took advantage of the cheap rent to set up the studio, which has since been responsible for producing some of New Zealand’s finest albums of recent years (TrinityRoots, The Phoenix Foundation). The Surgery is the practice room, recording studio, and general hangout space for the band, with all four of their albums having been produced there.

ALBUMS:

The Black Seeds released their debut album 'Keep On Pushing' in 2001 and despite a tiny marketing budget the album reached platinum sales in New Zealand, as well as being successfully released in Australia through Shock Records.

The second album, 2004's 'On the Sun', added a heavy dose of funk and soul to their dub reggae sound. Debuting at No. 3 in the New Zealand Charts, the album achieved double-platinum sales with the single 'So True' becoming one of the most successful New Zealand singles of 2005.

In July 2007, The Black Seeds released their third album 'Into the Dojo' in New Zealand. Spending five consecutive weeks at No. 1, and a total of 52 weeks in the album charts, the album has sold well over double-platinum sales and spawned four radio hits with singles 'The Answer', 'Sometimes Enough', 'Cool Me Down' and 'One by One'. The album showed a great deal of development in the group's sound; and for the first time song-writing duties were shared between the band members.

'Into the Dojo' was also the start of the bands movement from their New Zealand base to the rest of the world. After signing a 2-album deal with respected German-based label Sonar Kollektiv, 'Into The Dojo' was successfully released in Europe in 2007, supported by two 12" vinyl EP's (Best Seven/Sonar Kollekitv). The album received critical acclaim and strong airplay, particularly in Germany and France where it reached high rotate and was featured as Album Of The Week on stations such as Radio Nova (France), Radio Eins (Germany) and more.

Tracks from the album featured on compilations such as Nova Tunes 07 (alongside songs from Radiohead, Jose Gonzalez) and 'The Answer' featured as iTunes France’s Single of the Week, all of which contributed to the start of a fast-growing fan base for the band in Europe.

SOLID GROUND:

Written and workshopped in beach-house locations around Wellington, The Black Seeds fourth and latest album 'Solid Ground' was successfully released in New Zealand, Australia and Europe, between August – October, 2008, and reaching well-over platinum sales in New Zealand.

Produced by the bands guitarist Mike Fabulous, the album oozes with The Black Seeds distinctive flavour – from the heavy-hitting, Karma-inspired 'Slingshot' and darker reggae/dub-infused tracks like 'Send a Message' and 'The Bubble', to infectious reggae gems like 'Love Is A Radiation', 'Come To Me', and the funk/soul filled 'Rotten Apple' and 'Afrophone'.

Spending 7 consecutive weeks in the 'Top 5' of the New Zealand music charts, 'Solid Ground' was released in Europe through Sonar Kollektiv, supported by two European tours which included standout performances at many of Europe’s biggest festivals such as Summerjam, Garance, Lowland, Roskilde, and The Lovebox Weekender, as well as a live performances on TV shows such Canal Plus (France’s biggest music TV show).

"charmed… soulful 70’s styled reggae… single ‘Make A Move’ is one of the
snackiest reggae pop tunes on planet earth."
- Mojo Magazine – November, 2008

NORTH AMERICA:

In July, 2009, The Black Seeds signed with top North American label Easy Star Records - masterminds behind one of the decade’s best-selling reggae albums: The Easy Star All-Stars' 'Dub Side of the Moon'.

'Solid Ground' was successfully released in September 2009. Debuting in the top 15 of the Billboard reggae charts, the album has received critical acclaim including recently being named Soul Album of The Year by jambase.com’s Dennis Cook. Solid Ground also spent eight consecutive weeks in the Top 10 of CMJ's World Music charts, and five weeks in the overall CMJ Top 200.

In support of the release The Black Seeds completed their first major US tour in September 2009 alongside top U.S act John Brown’s Body. The 12-show US tour saw them performing to packed houses across America.

The band returned to North America on a hugely successful 17-show tour in July 2010 which included performances at major festivals such as High Sierra (CA), Camp Bisco & Grassroots (NY), and the Victoria Ska Festival. (Canada)

"a damn fine record… thoughtful, catchy songs rampant with horn lines and stomach shaking bass, not to mention Weir's excellent voice. Hard to turn off, easy to repeat." - Huffington Post - U.S.A – August, 09

LIVE ALBUM

In 2009 The Black Seeds' released their long awaited, first ever live album 'The Black Seeds Live: Vol 1'. The album was released as both a digital download, and as a limited edition deluxe CD/DVD set only available from the bands website and their live shows.

Black Seeds Groove The Altitude
Posted: Sat Nov 15, 2008 2:00 pm
Right, so I know it's delayed, but hey...a reviews a review.
I saw these guys play in 07 at The Altitude in the mighty Tron and here's what went down...


The last time I saw the Black Seeds play was at XAir in their hometown, Wellington. With a beautiful sunny afternoon in the capital to compete with, I wasn’t sure if the Altitude in Hamilton was quite the right venue for such a bright summery band. The shows I’ve previously been to there have always left me feeling deafer than a 90 year old grandma, so I was hoping for more music, less noise for the Seeds performance.

We arrived early to get a good spot, and it was lucky we did! Seems the boys are more popular in The Tron than I thought. The bottom floor quickly filled, so upstairs was opened for more people – I’ve never seen this happen at the Altitude, so it was awesome to see they have such a great following here.

On the floor up the front, there was pushing to get to the stage, but when the boys (finally) walked on one by one, the crowd was only worried about listening to their favourite Black Seeds tunes.
The room was transformed into a beautiful Sunday afternoon with the first song of the evening, Lets Get Down, followed by Turn It Around off their album, On The Sun.

By the time the third tune, Way The World was played all of my worries of turning into that 90 year old grandma again had disappeared…the music was clear with none of that nasty noise the venue is famous for. The instruments weren’t competing against one-another and each were played to Black Seeds perfection – right down to the tambourine.

Other songs of the evening included The Answer, Prince of Wales, Fire, Cool Me Down and So True which were all performed with as much energy as the last. It was refreshing to finally see a live band that weren’t afraid to smile and have a good time, along with telling the crowd how much they appreciate the support.

Concluding the evening with two top songs, Heavy Mono E and Sometimes Enough off their latest album Into The Dojo, the crowd went crazy. There was clapping, dancing and singing along much to the delight of the band and even the bouncer! They finished the show very politely with yet another thank-you before heading off stage into the sunset…(OK, the sunset part’s not true, but it fits!)

By the comments of people leaving the show, a good time was had by all, and I’m happy to report that 90 year old grandma was no-where to be found afterwards.

The Black Seeds announce new album 'Solid Ground'
Posted: Fri Jun 27, 2008 9:47 am
The Black Seeds are pleased to announce that their fourth studio album 'Solid Ground' will be released in New Zealand on 11 August 2008.

After spending the summer months writing and work-shopping in locations around Wellington, the new 13-track album has once again been recorded with Dr Lee Prebble at The Surgery studio in Wellington.

'Solid Ground' is the follow-up to The Black Seeds third album 'Into The Dojo', which spent 5 weeks at #1, reached well over double-platinum sales in New Zealand, and garnered critical acclaim and strong airplay both at home and in Europe.

Joined for the first time on an album by trumpet player Andrew Christiansen and keyboardist Nigel Patterson, 'Solid Ground' has come on the back of 2 years of extensive New Zealand and international live touring, resulting in a constantly evolving, 8-member creative process.

The heavy-hitting first single 'Slingshot' will be released to radio this week and available for digital download from 14 July. The video for the single, directed by Wellington company Mofresh, will be released to NZ Music TV on 7 July.

'Solid Ground' will be released simultaneously in Europe through German-based label Sonar Kollektiv. The Black Seeds will complete a 23-show European tour in July/August, including performances at some of Europes biggest festivals, before returning to New Zealand for an album release tour in September.

SOLID GROUNDWILL BE DISTRIBUTED IN NEW ZEALAND THROUGH RHYTHMETHOD

New Black Seeds Album - Into The Dojo In Stores Today
Posted: Mon Jul 17, 2006 10:27 am
The Black Seeds are very pleased to announce the release of their highly anticipated third studio album Into The Dojo, released in stores today through Capitol Records.

The recording of Into The Dojo began in May 2005, when band members Barnaby Weir (lead vocals/guitar), Daniel Weetman (percussion/vocals), Mike Fabulous (guitar), Bret McKenzie (keys), Lee Prebble (sound engineer) and new rhythm section Jarney Murphy (drums) and Tim Jaray (bass) once again converged on The Surgery studio in Newtown, Wellington.

The next 12 months were spent balancing touring duties and side projects with writing and jamming new songs in the studio. The result of this year-long creative process is 13 tracks of The Black Seeds’ most mature and accomplished music to date.

While Into The Dojo (named after the band’s practice room at The Surgery which was once a karate dojo) contains the elements that have characterised The Black Seeds’ music in the past, it also shows a great deal of development in the group’s sound. Song-writing responsibilities have been shared throughout the band’s members, while Daniel Weetman and Bret McKenzie have joined Barnaby Weir on vocal duties.

The video for the first single Sometimes Enough is currently in production and is set for release in late July. The Black Seeds will complete a nationwide album release tour in August before completing a European tour in September and an Australian tour in November.

Black Seeds News
Posted: Thu Aug 19, 2004 8:15 pm
The Black Seeds are pleased to announce the release of the new single and video clip from their Gold-selling album On The Sun. The third single 'Sort It Out' comes after of the success of singles 'Fire' and 'Turn It Around' which have both received significant airplay on NZ radio and TV.

For their third video clip from the new album, The Black Seeds returned to local Fish n Clips director James Barr, who also directed the award-winning videos for 'Keep On Pushing' and 'Hey Son' from their debut album Keep On Pushing. The video was filmed over two days in the Wellington suburbs of Island Bay and Newtown. Stills from the making of the video can be viewed by visiting The Black Seeds' website (http://www.theblackseeds.com)

Since its release and debut at #3 in the NZ album charts in February, The Black Seeds' acclaimed second album On The Sun has spent 16 weeks in the NZ Top 40 album charts and is approaching Platinum sales status in New Zealand. In March the band completed its most successful New Zealand tour to date with a sell-out, 11-show album release tour, and then returned across the Tasman in April for a second Australian tour. Highlights there included a packed house at the legendary Melbourne venue The Prince of Wales and a sell-out Sydney show.

Another highlight in 2004 saw The Black Seeds travel to Singapore in late July to perform as one of the headline acts at the Rastafari Reggae Splash, Singapore's first ever reggae festival. The Black Seeds took their full, eight-piece live band over to perform to an audience of over 3000 people on Saturday 31st July. For more info check out www.rastafari.com.sg

Later in 2004 The Black Seeds aim to be back on the road for New Zealand and Australian summer tours.
