In case you forgot, Seether will be playing a show in Johannesburg on the 20th of May at Marks Park in Emmerentia. The show will also feature performances by Francois Van Coke (who will be playing an acoustic set), Crash Car Burn, Deity’s Muse and Hellcats.
Seether‘s existence is an act of rebellion, weaponized to cut through the noise with truth telling clarity and undeniable authenticity. Even as no-talent hacks and cartoon social media living mannequins seek to dominate the discourse, Seether takes a stand against those who Poison the Parish.
“We want to bring back musicality, playing loud, and the importance of having something to say that you can stand behind,” declares Seether front man / co-founder Shaun Morgan. “It’s about honesty in your music.”
Poison the Parish, the band’s seventh studio album, arrived just in time on Morgan’s new label imprint Canine Riot Records, via Concord Music Group. Morgan also served as producer (the first time he’s produced an album in its entirety), working alongside engineer and mixer Matt Hyde (who has worked with the likes of Slayer, Deftones and Hatebreed) at Nashville’s Blackbird Studio, which has played host to everyone from Taylor Swift to Jack White.
The relentlessly hard working outfit has averaged 90 performances a year, criss-crossing the globe as headlining mainstays and featured performers on many of the world’s biggest rock festivals. Seether songs are also familiar to anyone who plays Madden NFL games or watch the WWE.
Consider: Seether has amassed twenty Top 5 singles, three platinum records, a fan-beloved gold-selling DVD and scores of number 1 singles including “Fine Again,” “Fake It,” “Remedy,” “Broken,” “Words As Weapons,” “Country Song,” “Breakdown,” “Rise Above This,” “Same Damn Life,” “Truth,” “Gasoline,” “Driven Under” and their infamous cover of “Careless Whisper”. The band has also been recognized by the South African Music Awards, MTV Africa Music Awards and Revolver Golden Gods Awards.
