Ryan Eric Seaman (born September 23, 1983) is an American musician who is known as the longest tenured drummer for the band Falling in Reverse. He left Falling in Reverse around April of 2017. He is the current touring drummer for rock band Icon for Hire.

Musical career[edit]

Early years (2002–2011)[edit]

In 2002, Seaman got his first touring opportunity to play on the Vans Warped Tour, drumming for Lookout Records artist The Eyeliners.[1]

In 2005, Seaman joined the band of post-hardcore I Am Ghost,[2] recording some tracks for their debut album, Lovers' Requiem, released in 2006.[3] In April 2009 he joined the pop rock band The Bigger Lights,[4] participating in two albums and an EP,[5][6] leaving the band in May 2011. He has also participated as a drummer with artists such as The Brobecks,[7] My Favorite Highway and Aiden.[8]

Falling in Reverse (2011–2017)[edit]

In late May 2011, Seaman officially joined the post-hardcore band, Falling in Reverse,[9][10] replacing Scott Gee. The band released their first album, The Drug in Me Is You on July 26. Although he did not participate in the recording of the album, he is credited as part of the band.[11] Seaman performed on the band's second studio album Fashionably Late, released on June 18, 2013. The band released their third studio album Just Like You on February 24, 2015.

Around the time of the bands fourth and most recent release with Seaman, Coming Home, it was rumored that he had parted ways with the band.[12] This was confirmed when the band performed on May 8, without Seaman and Chris Kamrada now playing drums for the band.[citation needed]

Icon for Hire (2017–present)[edit]

Prior to the controversy with Falling in Reverse, Seaman announced on April 6, 2017 that he would play supporting drums for rock band Icon for Hire starting May 3, 2017.[13][14]

Other projects[edit]

In November 2014, Seaman was featured on Dallon Weekes' Christmas song titled "Sickly Sweet Holidays".[15] Seaman also performed on Weekes' second Christmas single titled "Please Don't Jump (It's Christmas)", released in November 2016.[16] Seaman and Weekes formed I Don't Know How But They Found Me, where they made their unannounced debut on December 6 at Emo Nite's two-year anniversary show at The Echo and Echoplex.[17][18]
