Meet the Seeds: Moises Juarez (lead vocals), Sean Chapman (vocals/guitar), Mathew McEwan (vocals/guitar), Patrick Salmon (drums), and Andre Davis (bass).January of 2011 began with an ignited fire.

By the end of January TBS headed out for a four week tour with the legendary Wailers. Within days of the tour ending they teamed up with Katchafire and stayed on the road.
