BAND TO EMBARK ON WORLD TOUR THIS SPRING
SEETHER (Shaun Morgan, vocals/guitar; Dale Stewart, bass/vocals; John Humphrey, drums) have shared a new track called “Nothing Left” from their upcoming album Poison the Parish, due out May 12 through Morgan’s new Canine Riot Records via Concord Music Group.
Poison the Parish was recorded at Blackbird Studio in Nashville, Tennessee and marks the first album produced in its entirety by frontman Morgan. Among the heaviest and most emotionally pure efforts of Seether’s illustrious career, the new album embodies the band’s newfound ferocity and resolve.
“In a time when it’s easy to tune out all the monotonous rock, Seether’s Poison the Parish proves the South African outfit still grooves, crushes and rocks harder than all,” affirms Revolver. Alternative Press was similarly impressed stating, “Poison the Parish is a return to the darker and heavier style of music that Seether built their name upon.”
Seether is preparing to embark on the first leg of the Poison the Parish World Tour, which includes headline shows and festival appearances throughout the spring and summer. Every ticket purchase comes with a physical copy of Poison the Parish. Additionally, a portion of all tickets sold for the Poison the Parish World Tour will benefit the Rise Above Fund, which is a subset of Suicide Awareness Voices of Education, the largest suicide prevention organization in the country, and the band’s partner on the Rise Above Fest.
Now in its fifth year, the Rise Above Fest has expanded to two days in 2017 — Saturday, July 22, and Sunday, July 23 at Darling’s Waterfront Park in Bangor, Maine. Performers include Seether, Korn, Shinedown, Stone Sour, Skillet, Halestorm, Falling in Reverse, and more.

The Belasco Theater
With numerous sold out dates, the second leg of Skilletʼs “Unleashed” tour is now on the last dates until the Little Rock, AR show on March 24th marks the end of the line for this run. The band will have numerous major festival appearances yet marking another milestone of their already successful career as one of the most hard-working bands in rock and one of the most acclaimed and award-winning Christian bands in history. During the Belasco show, we witnessed the vast diversity of Skilletʼs fan base. From Young kids who attended the show with their parents to the teens and adults who feel identified with their message and positive energy.
Do not be fooled, seeing kids and moms in the crowd does not mean you wonʼt have a rocking good time. Everything from their anthem-like songs to the music-synced lighting (awesome job lighting guy) and energy displayed through each and every one of their upbeat songs makes the purchase your ticket one of the most memorable and satisfying investments when it comes to rock shows.
“Unconventional” is probably one of my favorite words to describe Skilletʼs shows. John Cooper (Vocals/bass) during certain songs drops his instrument to focus on the mic only and get closer to the crowd, Korey Cooper will steal your attention on stage right switching between guitars, keys and backup vocals, this dynamic duo (marriage) is one of my favorite aspects as pillars of the band. Seth Seth Morrison on stage left is in charge of the leads (guitar) and his charm (I noticed) had some of the young crowdʼs attention who prefer the 6-string performers and last but not least, miss Jen Ledger, in the back on the drums who can not only hit those skins and cymbals with some fierce power but also takes a break from her duty to sing and lead vocals for a few minutes and who also adds backup vocals during various songs in their set.
The meet and greet experiences (available as an upgrade) have become a fan- favorite opportunity to have a photo opportunity with their rock n roll heroes.
To name all the awards and nominations this band has been part of reflects the quality of not only their dedication as performers but also as people that bring a positive message to the crowd with their music… or a rocking attitude with tons of feel-good sounds.
