FAQ

Why are you called Sebastopol?

Although Sebastopol is the name of places in California, Crimea, and 25 other locations around the world, it is also the nickname given to an unusual way of tuning the guitar. All of our songs are played using this way of tuning. Literally every guitar part on every one of our records without exception.

Crimea was annexed by Russia in 2014 and your name is the same as a city in Crimea. So do you guys support Russia?

Sebastopol the band was formed in 2012 before the Russian annexation and is in fact not named after the city Sevastopol (see above). Most countries and the United Nations think that Crimea is still a part of Ukraine, and we agree.

What do you think about the Russian invasion of Ukraine?

We are strongly against it.
