History[edit]

Damn Seagulls is a Finnish-rock group, formed in 1997 in Helsinki. They're also noted for their hit single "Once Upon a Time" is featured of the credits of The Dudesons Movie & their TV Show. Their rock style is kind of different from other Rock bands due to their use of brass instruments and woodwind instruments to make catchy tunes. The band is currently playing shows in many parts of Finland.

They have released two full-length album entitled "One Night at Sirdie's" in 2005 and "Soul Politics" in January 2007. In February 2007 Damn Seagulls will start 'Soul Politics' tour around Finland. In February 2007 Damn Seagulls has released their first video 'Human Torch'.[1] 15 May 2007 the band informed at their website that Aki Karppanen is no longer the drummer of the band. On 29 May 2007 the band announced on their website that on the gigs of summer 2007 Kelly Ketonen (Lemonator, Anssi Kela -live band, ex-Hybrid Children) will be playing drums. On 20 June 2007 it was reported on the band's website, that Toni Koskinen will leave the band due to his dislike of the band's current style and Olli Noroviita from the band Cosmobile will replace Koskinen on bass. Koskinen played his last gig as a member of the band 14 September 2007. On 9 October 2007 it was announced, that Tommi Salminen (Tigerbombs, Ville Leinonen & Valumo) will be playing drums on the future gigs.
