Bad Seed was a hardcore band from Wilkes-Barre, PA founded in 2008. Featuring Shane Moran and Andrew Saba of The Gnarlies and Title Fight, the band initially recorded a demo in 2008 with a lineup featuring Adam and Ben from Tigers Jaw on bass and drums respectively. Shortly after, Rifkin of Disclosure and Jamie Rhoden of The Early Birds, joined the band as the new rhythm section, and the original members found out they were kicked out of the band through a post on the Ben And Matt message board. Bad Seed re-recorded the demo and re-released it at as Demo II. Around this time, they played frequently, touring the east coast regularly, and continued writing towards their debut 7", the self-titled EP that was released in 2009. After the record's release, they grew to a five-piece band by adding Ned Russin of Disengage on bass and moving Rhoden to guitar. They only recorded one song with this lineup, their side of the 2009 split with War Hungry which was released for that year's Sound And Fury festival. And then, as it normally goes in hardcore, the band broke up. Members went on to play in Nails, Consolation Prize, Stick Together, Haze, Anthracite, and more.
