Band To Hit The Road Again In Support Of Their Latest Release
Holding Onto Strings Better Left To Fray

2012 is already shaping up to be another great year for South African rockers Seether.  The band is going to be heading out on the road again this April playing alongside Nickelback on their upcoming North American tour.  The recently reformed Bush are also on the bill.  The trek kicks off on April 10th in Moline, IL and runs all the way through mid June wrapping up on June 26th in Vancouver. The tour will also make stops in other major markets including Detroit, Philadelphia, New York and Los Angeles to name a few.  These dates come on the heels of an international run, some markets they haven’t seen in over two years, comprised of headline shows and dates opening for longtime friends 3 Doors Down.  Seether is touring in support of their latest Wind-Up Records release Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray.  The album was released in May and debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and is the band’s highest album premier to date.  The album has scanned over 250,000 copies since its release.

2011 was a milestone year for Seether as the debut single from Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray, “Country Song” was named Active Rock Song of the Year by Billboard.  The single was also #1 Song of the Year by Mediabase as well as the most played Active Rock Song of 2011.  “Country Song” spent an amazing 11 weeks at #1 over the course of the year and achieved Gold status for sales of over 500,000 units digitally by the RIAA.  The song was also the #1 Active Rock Song of the Year in Canada. Seether was named the #1 Active Rock Artist and the #1 Heritage Rock Artist of 2011 by Billboard as well. The band’s latest single “Tonight” has been making its own name for itself at radio as well.  The song topped the Active Rock chart in the US in 2011 and was the first time the band had consecutive #1 singles at the format. The band released a performance video from the Uproar Tour that can be seen at

Seether also recently taped a Guitar Center Sessions which will be debuting on DirectTV on January 14th.  In the episode, the band talks to host Nic Harcourt about creating a music career in the US after leaving South Africa, the side effects of their success and how each album had a direct impact on singer Shaun Morgan’s life.  During the episode, Seether perform some their biggest hits including “Remedy,” “Fake It” and the aforementioned “Country Song.”

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's Disclaimer. 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.

Seether is Shaun Morgan (Guitars/Vocals), Dale Stewart (Bass) and John Humphrey (Drums).
