Platinum-selling rockers Seether are packing their road cases and heading out on tour again this Fall. The band will be headlining the appropriately titled Triple Threat Tour with Sick Puppies and Kyng opening. The tour kicks off in mid-September and wraps up in Detroit on October 20. The 27-city trek will make stops in major markets including Boston, Baltimore, Atlanta, and Denver with other dates to be announced soon. Seether’s live show has always been the subject of critical acclaim as referenced by the Worcester Telegram & Gazette review from a recent concert appearance: “From the combustible opener ‘Gasoline’ to ‘Remedy’ (which is possibly the best Nirvana song Nirvana never recorded), the South African post-grunge/alternative-metal trio Seether captivated the crowd with its hellish and hypnotic 40-minute, eight-song set.” Seether has been touring in support of their latest release, Holding Onto Strings Better Left To Fray, which was released in May 2011 and debuted at #2 on Billboard Top 200. The album has sold over 300,000 copies to date.
Seether has been racking up a series of career milestones for themselves. The South African trio’s latest single “No Resolution” from their Wind-Up Records release, Holding Onto Stings Better Left To Fray, hit #1 at Active Rock marking the first time the band has had 3 consecutive chart topping tracks from the same album. “No Resolution” follows in the footsteps of previous #1 singles, “Country Song” and “Tonight,” and continues the band’s undeniable dominance at the format. “Country Song” spent an amazing 11 weeks at #1 over the course of the year, achieved Gold status for sales of over 500,000 units digitally by the RIAA and was named Active Rock Song of the Year by Billboard. Seether’s single, “Here & Now,” went to Rock radio on June 19th. The band also started The Rise Above Fest, which will take place in Gilford NH on September 3rd at the Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion. The annual festival will raise money in support of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), a multi-faceted organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of persons of all ages affected by mental illness or serious emotional disorders through education, support and advocacy.
Playing alongside Seether, who will be headlining the inaugural event, are fellow rockers Buckcherry, Puddle Of Mudd, Black Stone Cherry and Otherwise.
Looking back on Seether’s career path, it’s not surprising that the band has progressed to this juncture. The band has sold millions of albums to date worldwide and are mainstays in the touring circuit averaging more than 275 performances per year. They have had 11 #1 singles and 17 Top 5 hits across multiple formats at radio.
Originally founded in Johannesburg, South Africa, by Shaun Morgan and Dale Stewart, Seether made its initial impact on U.S. hearts and eardrums with 2002’sDisclaimer. The album’s first single, “Fine Again” was a pensive ballad that resonated with fans worldwide. Seether gained nationwide live exposure with a spot on that year’s Ozzfest tour. Seether rerecorded the acoustic track “Broken” as an electric version featuring Evanescence vocalist Amy Lee. “Broken” became a massive international hit for the group. In 2004, Seether remixed and remastered Disclaimer, adding eight new songs and new cover art to create the two-disc set Disclaimer II, which went Platinum. In 2005, Seether released Karma & Effect, which is certified gold and followed that release up in 2007 with the now Platinum Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces. The album was reissued in 2009 with a cover of George Michael’s “Careless Whisper,” and became another successful single release for the band.
