THE SEAFLOOR CINEMA
RELEASE COHEED AND CAMBRIA COVER
‘A FAVOR HOUSE ATLANTIC’
OUT NOW ON PURE NOISE RECORDS
Sacramento, California's The Seafloor Cinema have released a cover of Coheed and Cambria's prog epic ‘A Favor House Atlantic’. The track is accompanied by a computer game inspired video/visualiser. ‘A Favor House Atlantic’ is out now via Pure Noise Records.
Speaking on their latest release, the band comments: "We have always been big fans of Coheed and were super excited to make our own version of such an iconic song. We wanted to keep it pretty straight up while still adding the guitar gymnastics and ‘psycho drumming‘ we aim to bring to everything"

MORE ON THE SEAFLOOR CINEMA
Since forming in Sacramento, CA, in 2016, The Seafloor Cinema have been keeping both themselves and listeners guessing with a musical blend-o-matic of Midwestern emo, pop-punk and math rock, spinning unconventional song structures and dextrous, intricate guitar work into captivating underground anthems they’ve brought nationwide on the Emo Night Tour.
Add to that a penchant for outrageously verbose song titles that would threaten a less-confident band with being pigeonholed as holdovers from Myspace’s glory days, and it’s clear the trio (vocalist/bassist Justin Murry, guitarist Seth Lawrenson and drummer Timothy Aldama) enjoy zigging where other acts might zag.
This spirit of subversion is right there from the jump on their Pure Noise Records debut, "In Cinemascope With Stereophonic Sound", as the band soup-up their sound with a hearty dose of unabashed pop charm. This pop element gives the songs a newfound warmth without losing an ounce of what made their 2018 album, “A Metaphor For Honesty,” so interesting. It’s all at once sophisticated and accessible, melodically replicable and musically ambitious.
“We pushed ourselves to make a record that challenged our creative boundaries, but at the same time, still giving it that Seafloor charm,” Justin says.
Kickstarter backers contributed more than $20,000 to fund the album, and The Seafloor Cinema are determined to not let this goodwill fall victim to the commoditisation of modern culture and the way some acts monetise their fans. The album artwork, a beautiful vintage painting suffocated by plastic wrap, itself serves as a commentary on hyper-commercialism – which they, as always, are quick to cut with their trademark humour.
"In Cinemascope With Stereophonic Sound" is out now via Pure Noise Records HERE.
