For their 7th album, Shaun Morgan and Seether have really dug deep. When I say ‘deep’, I mean in the dark way, stirring up emotions and notions of mental and personal challenges many of us face on a daily basis over a lifetime; love, loss, lack of self confidence, suicidal thoughts, anger, depression, hopelessness et al. This is NOT a ‘feel-good’ album!
Since 2002, Seether has been a workhorse band, continually cycling through writing, releasing an album, touring and right back to writing again. It’s no secret that front-man Shaun Morgan has fought with his demons, ultimately leading to the break up of his highly publicized relationship with Evanescence’s singer Amy Lee and subsequent stint in rehab in 2006 for alcoholism.
Prior to its release, Seether indicated that this was the ‘heaviest album they’ve ever written’, and arguably, it is. Watch the video below for our take!
