Seether Announces New Album

Rock band Seether have announced the release of their third studio album via Wind-up Records on October 23, 2007.  The South African émigrés, who now live in the Los Angeles area, are coming off three consecutive gold certified studio albums.  Their debut DISCLAIMER, was re-released following sales of over 500,000 copies with a DVD and bonus tracks which included the pop hit “Broken” from The Punisher feature film.  This expanded version of the album titled DISCLAIMER II went on to sell 678,461 copies, making it the first debut album to be certified gold twice.  The band’s follow-up KARMA & EFFECT, has sold 703,680 copies according to Soundscan since release.  As a bridge between studio albums, Seether released the CD/DVD ONE COLD NIGHT, a live, acoustic offering captured in Philadelphia, PA.  The new album titled FINDING BEAUTY IN NEGATIVE SPACES will be released on October 23, 2007.

 

Singer / Guitarist Shaun Morgan shared, “we’ve been working very hard on this album, and it’s been quite some time since we’ve had a single at radio, so we’re extremely excited to be back in the saddle, so to speak. We basically whittled down over 50 songs, to our favourite 15, and we’ve adopted an ‘anything goes’ attitude for this album. We didn’t restrict ourselves to straight rock songs, and we were completely open to new ideas. This is not by any stretch of the imagination a concept album, nor is it a ‘woe is me, I’m sober’ album. We explored our melodic side a little bit more, and as a result, I believe this is our best collective effort to date. It may come as a surprise to some, but we feel like we’ve grown and are starting to find our place with regards to the sound of the band. “

 

Few artists over the past five years have performed as many dates across The United States as Seether has.  Outside of when they are writing or recording, the band averages over 275 performances annually.  Once out of the studio, the band will join Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin for an arena tour which will take them through the release of FINDING BEAUTY IN NEGATIVE SPACES.

 

Bassist Dale Stewart offered, “We’re essentially a touring band. We love nothing more than to take the songs to the clubs, and the people, and perform them to the best of our ability. We’ve been off the road for the best part of a year now, so we’re itching to get back out and entertain our fans! It’s always incredibly exciting when you head out on a brand new tour, in support of a brand new album. It’s new for us, and it’s new for the fans, so it becomes a new show, for people who have had the chance to see us before. This is our favourite time of any cycle!”
