Seether Celebrates A Decade of Success With the 10th Anniversary of ‘Disclaimer’
Since they first set their sights on the US market, multi-platinum rockers Seether have consistently proven themselves to be one of the top rock bands of the last decade. They are regulars on the rock touring circuit; always included on the biggest festival stages, headlining their own tours and taking advantage of invitations to open for legendary bands.
Seether are champions on both Rock and Alternative radio, proven with their six #1 hits. Perhaps one of the biggest milestones in their career is being celebrated this year and specifically on August 20th, which marks the 10 year anniversary of Disclaimer, the group’s first release and the album that introduced the South African transplants to the masses.
As a thank you to the legions of fans who have supported the band, an unreleased video for the song, “Sympathetic,” from Disclaimer is being exclusively premiered on Vevo here.
In addition, the band will be releasing never-before-seen footage along with more exclusive content throughout the coming weeks. Wind-up has made the entire Seether catalogue, including their latest release, ‘Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray’ available for $7.99 all week at iTunes + all tracks from ‘Disclaimer’ and ‘Disclaimer II’ will be priced at $.69 for a limited time.
Since the release of ‘Disclaimer,’ all of Seether’s albums have been certified either Gold or Platinum and they’ve made the rounds on the late night circuit on a regular basis with performances on Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien, Carson Daly, George Lopez and Jimmy Kimmel. They have had tremendous radio success, including six #1 hits, 13 top 10 hits on Active Rock and nine top 10 hits on Alternative.
Their most recent album, ‘Holding Onto Strings Better Left To Fray’ is on its fourth single, already garnering three #1 singles including, “Country Song” which spent a phenomenal 11 weeks at #1, was certified Gold and named Active Rock Song of the Year by Billboard. The album debuted at #2 on the Billboard Charts and the group will continue to support it when they headline the Triple Threat Tour this fall with Sick Puppies and Kyng. Wind-up label mates Young Guns will open through October 3rd and Eye Empire will open through the end of the tour.
Wind-up Records CEO/President, Ed Vetri who initially signed the group said, “When we first signed Seether we knew they were exceptionally talented songwriters and we fell in love with songs like “Needles,” “Fine Again” and “Broken.” But they were young guys visiting America for the first time and were pretty nervous. They used that nervous energy and sheer determination to develop a dynamo live show. Since then, they have done nothing but continue to grow and exceed even our highest expectations in performance and songwriting. The combination of their hard work, dedication and talent has set them apart from so many others and has allowed them to become an extremely successful career band. We are proud to have had such a successful career with them and look forward to continuing on to Disclaimer’s 20th Anniversary!”
Prior to the Triple Threat Tour kick-off, Seether will be launching their first inaugural charity concert, The Rise Above Fest. The concert will be held on Labor Day (September 3rd) at the Meadowbrook Pavilion in Gilford, NH. The band is pairing up with NAMI (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. The cause is dear to the lead singer Shaun Morgan’s heart as his brother tragically took his life five years ago. Seether will be playing alongside Buckcherry, Puddle of Mudd, Blackstone Cherry, and various local bands.
To raise additional awareness and funds for the foundation and cause, Seether and NAMI have just launched an online auction with exclusive and rare items donated by their peers and supporters. The auction can be found here: www.biddingforgood.com/riseabove. Some highlights from the auction include signed guitars from Green Day and Nickelback, an autographed Kings of Leon box set, a Kiefer Sutherland signed script from the series finale of 24 and many more items.
