The Appleseed Cast is an indie rock band based in Lawrence, Kansas and is currently comprised of singer/guitarist Christopher Crisci, guitarist Aaron Pillar, bassist Marc Young and drummer Nathan Richardson.

The band formed in 1997 in Southern California with Crisci and Pillar joining bassist Jason Wickersheim and drummer Louie Ruiz under the name "December's Tragic Drive" (derived from lyrics of the song, "Seven" by Sunny Day Real Estate). The following year, the band – now billed as "The Appleseed Cast" – signed to Deep Elm Records out of South Carolina and released their debut album, The End Of The Ring Wars.
