FRANK-O’S NEW MUSIC STASH ON 6/24: SEETHER

SEETHER hail from Pretoria, South Africa & formed in 1999. They are also creators of the Rise Above Fest, founded in 2012 to raise awareness for suicide prevention and mental illness.

With this release, Seether announces their highly anticipated return with the new album, “Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum“, which translates to “If You Want Peace, Prepare For War,” & will drop on August 28th, via Fantasy Records.

According to a press release the album features 13 new tracks, a primal mix of euphoria and misery, undoubtedly some of the strongest material of SEETHER’s illustrious career, including the beautifully tormented first single “Dangerous” released today alongside an animated music video created by noted Turkish director Mertcan Mertbilek.

“These songs are carefully crafted to nestle in your ears like a tiny velvet rabbit clutching a switch-blade,” says front man Shaun Morgan, his flair for vivid imagery on full display. That bold openness strikes a chord musically and lyrically on songs that explore and eviscerate demons both personal and cultural. “This whole album is kind of me going through that process. I’m exposing myself to a degree I’m not normally comfortable with,” he says. “But I think it’s OK. I’m proud to be a little bit more vulnerable on this album.”

With touring paused, the ever-active SEETHER has posted a series of on-line sessions via social media featuring band members at home, including livestream Q&As and acoustic performances from Shaun Morgan, cooking instructionals with Dale Stewart, crossfit workouts with Corey Lowery and drumming playthroughs with John Humphrey. The “hanging at home” digital series can be seen at FACEBOOKYOUTUBE CHANNEL and TWITCH.

Enjoy & share! –Frank_O
