There was a time when it looked like Seahaven might never make music again, but today, the band has released their first full-length album in six years, Halo of Hurt via Pure Noise Records.
On the new record, lead vocalist Kyle Soto shares, "Halo Of Hurt has been a long time in the making and we feel it accurately reflects a lot of the emotions that were present between Reverie and now. This is the proper next installment in our catalog."
Halo of Hurt is a riveting new chapter for Seahaven in their ongoing evolution. Astral and eerie, moonlit and menacing, it reignites the magic dust that made Seahaven’s early 2010s run so special. It’s an adventurous rock album that urges you to grapple with your self doubt and innermost demons, then cast them into oblivion. “In Halo of Hurt, there’s some underlying anxiety from coming up short after 2014,” lead vocalist Kyle Soto admits. “I wanted to bring it back to the beginning of the band -- a revived version of our younger selves in my garage in 2009. No timelines, no pressure. No need to fit a certain mold.”
Seahaven completed the self-produced LP at the Omaha, Nebraska studio Another Recording Company in early 2020, mere days before much of the country found itself in indefinite lockdown. While the details of how Seahaven will be ultimately be able to perform Halo of Hurt to fans remain obscured, the band’s intent is anything but.
