Website: http://www.thescourgeofthesea.com/
The Lexington, KY-based band The Scourge of the Sea are in the middle of the first leg of their national tour in support of their brand new Alias Records full-length debut "Make Me Armored."

It’s timeless indie-rock with ‘60s singer/songwriter undertones, and has been favorably compared to The Mountain Goats, The Softies, Simon & Garfunkel and early REM.

After finishing up their current summer/fall tour in early October The Scourge of the Sea will kick off the second leg of their national tour in November (with dates currently being confirmed), before heading over the pond in January for an extensive UK tour.

The Scourge of the Sea writes sweet golden pop music. Swiftly tilting songs surround ghostly melodies, jangly hooks and recall the cover and comfort of darkness from the first time you saw the ocean, the first time you got lost and the first time you lost. Smart and literate songwriting coupled with dreamy, atmospheric arrangements don’t displace simple sing-a-longs over fractious electric guitars.

Living in the heart of downtown Lexington, KY, The Scourge of the Sea features Andrew English, Justin Craig and Robby Cosenza (currently of The Apparitions and formerly of Pontius CoPilot-recently named one of Kentucky’s top 10 in Filter magazine alongside Will Oldham, My Morning Jacket, Slint and Loretta Lynn). Since forming in the winter of 2004, the band has continued to maintain an increasingly loyal and healthy following on their own, from rock clubs to art galleries, attics to festivals.

The Scourge of the Sea has recently shared bills with Stars, Fruit Bats, Paleo, Langhorne Slim, Marbles, Rogue Wave and Clem Snide. The band’s releases include a vinyl demonstration single out on Paper Records and the upcoming full-length album, Make Me Armored, available July 2006 from independent mainstay Alias Records.

"Make Me Armored is coherent and polished - full of well-crafted, ethereal tunes that say a lot with few, impeccably chosen words." (Band of the Week) - PASTE MAGAZINE

“…a great pop songwriting talent…” – EACH NOTE SECURE

“One of Lexington’s finest. Seeing them live is a must. While I missed their record release here [in Lexington], someone told me they sprinkled the stage with rose petals and ordered pizza for the audience. I doubt you can expect that on the road, but you can expect a sweet performance.” – YOU AIN’T NO PICASSO

“…some of the most melodic and atmospheric pop music I’ve heard in a long time.” – RESISTING INERTIA

"The instrumentation on this album sounds so well put-together and the arrangements just make so much sense that its hard to believe these songs haven’t existed for thousands of years." (4 out of 5 stars) - HARMONIUM MUSIC

"This is one album where the spellbinding vocals really will leave you enamored and shuddering in disbelief. How can humans create something as god-like as “Waterwings”? Indie pop for those of us who still love dreamy atmospheres in our guitars and catchy hooks in our vocals." - SMOTHER MAGAZINE

"This is quietly sunny, acoustic-pop, framed in shadow, which has apparently eschewed watches, calendars, and clocks... for it's timeless." - SIXEYES BLOGSPOT

"It's touching and beautiful, recalling The Softies at their best." (of "Waterwings") - YOU AIN'T NO PICASSO

“...near-perfect pop songs that are as deliciously sad as they are beautifully frail.” (4.5 out of 5 stars) - CONCERTLIVEWIRE
