The Appleseed Cast
The Appleseed Cast began their musical career in 1997 in Southern California before signing to Deep Elm Records and relocating to Lawrence, KS the following year. With the release of The End of The Ring Wars on Deep Elm Records, The Appleseed Cast began their ascent to their current rank as well-respected musicians and trendsetters among their genre. They’ve since released Mare Vitalis (Deep Elm, 2000); Low Level Owls Vols. 1 & 2 (Deep Elm, 2001); Lost Songs (Deep Elm, 2002); Two Conversations (Tiger Style, 2003); and Peregrine (The Militia Group, 2006).
Now seasoned veterans of the independent music world, The Appleseed Cast is proud to announce the release of Sagarmatha, their sixth studio album and second release with The Militia Group. The album will be available on February 17, 2009. The Appleseed Cast recorded at Mixtape Soundlab and Toy Shop, with their own Christopher Crisci engineering, and later re-grouped with Ed Rose at Black Lodge Recording in Lawrence, KS for instrumental overdubs and mixing. The record leads The Appleseed Cast to the peak of their musical ability, into experimental post-rock, and often purely instrumental territory.
The Appleseed Cast is Christopher Crisci, Aaron Pillar, Nate Whitman and John Momberg.
