The Triple Threat Tour Features Sick Puppies And Kyng

Tour Stops In 27 Markets Throughout September And October

Seether’s next single, “Here & Now,” is going to impact at Rock radio on June 19th.

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.  Special guests Young Guns will be playing through October 3 and Eye Empire will finish the tour from October 5 through October 20.  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 next single, “Here & Now,” is going to impact at 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) New Hampshire, 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'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).

My burberry totes bags is perfect. By great good fortune I have found a housekeeper no less to my mind, a low-voiced, light-footed woman of discreet age, strong and deft enough to render me all the service I require, and not afraid of loneliness. She rises cheap burberry bags very early. By my breakfast-time there remains little to be done under the roof save dressing of meals. Very rarely do I hear even a clink of crockery; never the closing of a door or window. Oh, blessed silence burberry online. My house is perfect. Just large enough to allow the grace of order in domestic circumstance; just that superfluity of inner space, to lack which is to be less than at one's ease. The fabric is sound burberry sale; the work in wood and plaster tells of a more leisurely and a more honest age than ours. The stairs do not creak under my step; I am attacked by no unkindly draught; I can open or close a window burberry outlet online sale without muscle-ache. As to such trifles as the color and device of wall-paper, I confess my indifference; be the walls only plain, and I am satisfied. The first thing in one's home is comfort; let beauty of detail be added if burberry bags one has the means, the patience, the eye. To me, this little book-room is beautiful, and chiefly because it is home. Through the greater part of life I was homeless. Many places have I lived burberry outlet store, some which my soul disliked, and some which pleased me well; but never till now with that sense of security which makes a home. At any moment I might have been driven forth by evil accident, by disturbing necessity burberry outlet. For all that time did I say within myself: Some day, perchance, I shall have a home; yet the perchance had more and more of emphasis as life went on, and at the moment when fate was secretly smiling burberry outlet sale, I had all but abandoned hope. I have my home at last. This house is mine on a lease of a score of years. So long I certainly shall not live; but, if I did, even so long should burberry wallets have the money to pay my rent and buy my food. Dami
