Steve ‘n’ Seagulls are at it again. Amidst extensive touring in almost twenty countries the band has finished recording their second album, which is to be released in the Autumn.
Last year has been very busy indeed and 2016 is not looking any quieter. Right after completing their second American tour the pale men from backwoods are headed up north above the polar circle in their native Finland, and from there on they’ll cover almost all of Europe, including five dates in the UK. Not bad.
Probably the only band on the planet to feature a ride-on lawnmower in their promo photo, Finland’s YouTube sensation Steve ‘n’ Seagulls are here to put the hick in hickory!
Originally just a bunch of local yokels from moderately successful bands, this merry mess of country cousins one day decided, just for laughs, to hillbillify (yes, “hillbillify” is henceforth officially a word) and shoot on video the AC/DC staple Thunderstruck. Little did they know that the home-brewed video of the song would propel the provincial posse into cyberspace stardom virtually overnight. Attention from media both domestic and foreign ensued, resulting to a slew of performances ranging from festival appearances to being the house band in the christening of your grandma’s cat.
