Biography

There are/were three bands named Camden:

1. In the summer of 1998, longtime friends and bandmates William Seidel, Ryan Weber and Brian Zimmerman met with Eric Osterman and founded the Milwaukee band Camden. Soon after forming, Camden recorded their first EP with Chris Rosenau (Pele, Collections of Colonies of Bees, Telecognac, and Lumis) in the spring of 1999 and began touring in support of their self-titled EP with bands such as Pele, The Gloria Record and Antarctica.

Soon afterwards, the band recorded a follow-up EP called Fall In An Overcoat in the fall, and completed several US tours that year. In December of 1999, they recorded the very well received Reel Time Canvas (released on Grand Theft Autumn) with Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie). Throughout the year 2000, Camden continuously toured with Death Cab for Cutie and then The Promise Ring while headlining a few tours of their own.

After recording 4 of the 6 tracks that were to become part of Pieces of Places with Chris Walla in Seattle, Camden suffered a few setbacks- Eric fell in love with a girl he met on the road and quit the band to marry her. The 6 tracks that Camden had recorded before the break-up sat for almost a year before Ed Menacho, Chris Strong and Joe Wigdahl were prompted to form Brilliante Records in order to release the EP and give it the attention they thought that it deserved.
