Seabound began in 1995 when Frank Spinath and Martin Vorbroot were introduced by a mutual friend. They were so different musically, that they weren't certain as to whether or not a musical collaboration between them would work. Despite the uncertainty they decided to try an informal jam-oriented home project. They soon realized that with a more focused approach, they might be able to produce something quite special. They made the band official and decided to call themselves Seabound. They decided on the name because of Spinath's love of the ocean and the fact that Vorbroot was born near the shore. The name also implies a ship leaving from a safe harbor into the unknown and sometimes treacherous seas; a metaphor for the band itself. For live concerts they are supported by Daniel Wehmeier (drums).
The band recorded demos which came to be known by fans as White Nights and eventually caught the attention of Dependent Records. Their debut album No Sleep Demon was released by Dependent in 2001. Drawing influence from the beat-oriented sounds of Front 242 and Covenant, as well as new wave acts such as Visage and Depeche Mode, the album proved to be relatively successful in the European EBM and Darkwave scenes. Tracks such as "Travelling" and "Hooked" were well-suited for club play; that exposure made the band known for their warm vocals, icy synth parts, and entrancing, sinuous melodies.
They took their time recording the follow up album Beyond Flatline. It was released in 2004 incorporating more of an Electro-industrial and IDM influence into their sound. The duo embarked on a successful European tour with fellow Futurepop group Pride & Fall; this tour dawned the released a split EP entitled Beyond Flatline Tour 2004. The release featured a remix of the duo's single at that time "Watching Over You". Later that year the duo's debut album No Sleep Demon was re-released as No Sleep Demon V2.0 presenting new mixes of the songs "Hooked" and "Avalost". This was done to give the new fans an introduction to Seabound's past and give older fans a bit of thanks for their support.
In 2006 their third album, Double-Crosser, was released giving the band more exposure than ever before. Double Crosser reached #1 Position on the German Alternative Charts (DAC) and German Electronic Web Charts (GEWC). The album also reached #3 Hellenic Alternative Charts (HAC) and #6 Nordic Alternative Charts (NAC). These achievements were announced on the group's MySpace via blog entry on December 3, 2006, and on their Official site on December 18.
