RANGING FROM DIVERSE backgrounds and musical influences, Keith, Malek, Zahid, and Farhan came together in early 2012 to form a creative musical outlet named 7nightsatsea. Their peculiar brand of music has drawn listeners, lured by their heart-wrenching and poignant tunes.
7nightsatsea started off as an experiment. With Zahid coming from a Death Core band, Keith and Farhan both from Hardcore bands before, Drummer Zahid explains that they are "trying to make music without screaming vocals".

Their shows were so impressive that the band was handpicked out of a large pool of local bands to be given the opportunity to play for Baybeats 2013.

“Imagine being alone on a boat on the sea, the only thing you have are your memories, and everywhere you travel you are leaving ghosts of your past.”
Even after Baybeats, 7nightsatsea are still on “Gear Five” mode according to guitarist Keith. The band is currently in the works of creating more merchandise, and recording their long awaited EP. Hopefully, having more songs available online in the near future.
