Seemless was an American rock supergroup formed by ex-Shadows Fall/Unearth drummer Derek Kerswill, Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach, and ex-Overcast/Killswitch Engage guitarist Pete Cortese.

Formed in 2002 following Leach's departure from Killswitch Engage, Seemless was signed to Equal Vision Records, and released their first self-titled LP. They toured extensively over the next year, quickly making a mark on the rock/metal scene with their mixture of soul and blues elements. After the release of their last album, What Have We Become, the band has toured with Nonpoint, Trivium, In Flames, Soil, Fu Manchu, Lacuna Coil, and several others.

In late 2012/early 2013 it was announced that Threshold of Pain Records, an imprint label of media company Nefarious Realm would be re-issuing their debut self-titled, Seemless on limited edition vinyl.[1]

Hiatus[edit]

In early 2009, Seemless announced that the band has gone on a hiatus. Derek Kerswill has joined Unearth, while Jeff Fultz and Pete Cortese have concentrated on their new band Bloodwitch. Jesse Leach has started several projects, including a new band called The Empire Shall Fall, and a new project recorded with Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz entitled Times of Grace. Leach later rejoined Killswitch Engage in February 2012.

Breakup[edit]

On June 29, 2009, the band posted the following bulletin on their official MySpace page:

"Seemless has officially announced that they are parting ways.

Sources close to the band say that you can only keep beating a dead horse for so long before you finally realize "Hey dude....this horse is already dead!"

They will play their last and final show where it all started:

The Lucky Dog 89 Green St. Worcester, MA 01462

Saturday September 12th, 2009

Official line-up coming soon, with advance tickets on sale next week. Special guests, friends and family will be in the house so be sure to get tix early.

More info COMING SOON!

To all who supported and appreciated what Seemless did.....

the collective 6 former and present members of the band can't thank you enough for all the memories."
—Seemless

The show was a great success, and Seemless has now officially split up.
