Old Blood, the first single from Seeckts’ long awaited debut album The Heart Of The City (out March 29, 2019) is the lament of a small town musician who let glimmers of fame go to his head, only to find himself years later without his youth or the friends he thought he’d made along the way. Old Blood features a soaring and anthemic chorus, layered over rich, warm guitars and a rock steady drum beat. It’s the kind of song that will live on inside your head for days after hearing it.


I tried to capture glory
Sang songs in every bar
You make it in your hometown
You think that you’re a star
The only stars round here / played football
I wrote songs ‘bout getting out
We’d all wind up in those bathroom stalls
Til the bouncers kicked us out

I used to brag I’d messed around
With every girl in town
I used to rule these streets of mine
Yeah once upon a time

And I’ve been holding on so long there’s nothing left
But the distant taste of youth upon my breath
Surrounded by the ghosts of all my long forgotten friends
Now I’m just old blood and regret

With time the bars I played in
They started shutting down
And pretty soon well I became
A king without a crown
The stories they got taller
As friends all slipped away
Nights alone with the TV on
And drinking through the day
