Eric Miko Findlay is a professional drummer from the beach cities of Los Angeles. A founding member of alternative emo group, Seahaven, the lion- share of his career revolved around writing, recording, and touring off their efforts. With a new Seahaven album out, Halo of Hurt, Eric spoke about this record with The Fountain in more depth.

TF: You have a new album out, what has the reception been like to Halo of Hurt

From what I’ve seen on the internet it’s been pretty sweet. So far, having old tourmates and friends from our heavy touring days reach out with kind words has been the sweetest. It’s only been a few days though. Thank you to anyone who’s streamed HOH.

TF: How would you sum up the LP in one sentence?

It’s sad lyrically- but wrestles with hopeful, brooding, delicate and heavy- sonically.

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?

Like everyone else, without touring we have to take to the internet. We got some fun stuff coming. Stay posted on

TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging? 

Anywhere in our stomping grounds of Los Angeles. Union Transfer in Philly is a close second. When the world opens back up I’m really pumped for some European festival-circuit stages. They do it out there unparalleled to that of the states.
