A little more than 10 years ago, a hard-jamming South African-based trio, altered its name and
headed for the U.S. Frontman Shaun Morgan recalls the move to be, "an emotional decision, by no means easy. Taking that big
step was terrifying, but I feel that the decision we made, as tough as it was, was ultimately the correct one."
the span of five albums, Seether has established itself to be one of the rock music scene's most dynamic, go-getting bands.
It's also one of the most accomplished, evidenced by the millions of albums sold globally. And, you just have to admire a
band who pulled off putting Wham!'s Careless Whisper into a Top 5 slot.
Greatly inspired by grunge bands like Alice
in Chains and Nirvana, Seether plans to keep its creative process as meticulous and fervent as it's been for over a decade.

Hailing from South Africa, Seether initially eclipsed the music scene in 1999 as Saron Gas (a name they
yanked from the back of a sound effects CD). The following year, they put out their first album, Fragile, on Musketeer Records.
In a land where musical preferences center around native and pop music, Fragile was able to yield remarkable chart success.
Wind Up Records in the U.S. took notice of the band's growing reputation and inked a deal with the band. They changed their
name to Seether to avoid any association with the lethal nerve agent, sarin gas. Before releasing their debut album, Seether
released an EP and secured a spot on the Ozzfest tour in 2002. The full-length album included the track, "Fine Again," which
steered them on a tour for a year. During that time, band member Shaun Morgan's relationship with Amy Lee of Evanescence grew.
The tour elevated Seether's commercial status. In the spring of 2004, a few singles showed up on the Punisher soundtrack,
featuring a duet with Lee for "Broken." In June, Disclaimer II arrived, teaming some new singles with remixed renditions of
the preceding album's tracks. Seether looked at the album as a chance to revisit their debut's release. It also offered listeners
some new material as a holdover until the band could get their follow-up ready. Karma and Effect came out in May 2005, securing
them a Top 10 spot. One Cold Night was released in 2006, which was an acoustic CD/DVD. After the demise of Morgan's relationship
with Lee and some time in rehab, Seether came back in 2007 with the album, Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces. The album included
the infectious and snarky, "Fake It." In 2009, the band took a brief hiatus from touring. They took the opportunity to step
back into the studio to focus on their fifth album.
The band returned to the road for another year prior to issuing
Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray in 2011.
