Seaway recently released their cover of The Cars’ “Just What I Needed”. The video, directed by Miguel Barbosa, features the band and their friends having a ton of fun singing the classic song at a karaoke bar.

“We had so many different songs we wanted to cover while we were in the studio last spring that it almost didn’t happen because we couldn’t decide on one,” says vocalist Ryan Locke. “In the end we decided that “Just What I Needed” is probably one of the more “out of left field” songs for us so we went with that. Since the song came out 14 years before we were born, it kind of seems like a song that is being kept alive in karaoke bars across the world so that’s how we landed on the video idea. We rented a private karaoke room and invited all our friends to come sing it with us all night.”

Seaway will wrap up the year with a tour in North America alongside Trophy Eyes, Microwave, Can’t Swim & Hot Mulligan. The tour, which kicks off on November 15th in Los Angeles, CA, includes one Canadian stop in Toronto on December 2nd at The Opera House. For a complete list of dates, please see below.
