The Return of Seefeel


I was perusing my Twitter stream earlier this week when I came across this very exciting tweet from Mark Van Hoen (Locust):

Mark Clifford played me the new Seefeel album last week. Inspiring, amazing and worth waiting for.

It’s been nearly 15 years since Seefeel’s last proper full-length, 1996’s (CH-VOX). After that, the band went on an extended hiatus during which the members pursued other projects (e.g., Disjecta, Sneakster, Scala). However, Mark Clifford and Sarah Peacock reunited last year to perform at Warp Records’ 20th anniversary concert, and subsequently began recording new material.

No release date has been mentioned, and there’s not even any mention of a new album on Seefeel’s MySpace page. However, Van Hoen has tweeted that the band hopes to release it this fall.

In the meantime, I highly recommend getting a copy of Quique, which is one of the best amalgamations of shoegazer and electronica that I’ve ever heard. And while you’re at it, pick up a copy of Van Hoen’s Weathered Well, which was recently remastered and reissued.
