Frank M Spinath, Seabound frontman and professor of psychology, interviewed
Apr 2014 02

Release Magazine’s Mikael Kahrle interviewed Frank M Spinath, frontman of German electronic music duo Seabound – and a professor of psychology at the Saarland University. He talks about his unique position as a professor-musician hybrid. Nowadays, his 2 personae are in fact one and he even records at his office, he confesses. Obviously, Spinath has a unique and endless source of inspiration for his lyrics. “I have a strong personal interest in people who stray from the straight and narrow paths of life”, he says.

The critically acclaimed band started almost 2 decades ago but came to a halt when second member Martin Vorbrodt started a new life in USA. He is an experienced lawyer specialized in IT and media law, intellectual property and licensing. Vorbrodt joined his firm on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles in 2007. In recent years, Frank M Spinath has released records with Edge of Dawn and Ghost & Writer. But now Seabound is back and has just delivered their first album in 7 years: “Speak in Storms” on Dependent Records (Europe) and Metropolis Records (North America).
