Rocking for a cause is something Seether know a lot about. Their Rise Above Fest was born in 2012 and made its triumphant return to New England again this year on May 10 at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine. The festival, the brainchild of Seether frontman Shaun Morgan, aims to raise funding and more importantly, awareness about suicide-- something that Morgan has a deeply personal connection with after the loss of his brother Eugene in 2007.
Seether recently announced that the band's sixth studio album, 'Isolate and Medicate,' will arrive on July 1. And shortly after making the announcement, frontman Shaun Morgan, bassist Dale Stewart and drummer John Humphrey spoke with 'Loudwire Nights' host Full Metal Jackie about the new disc. Check out the chat below.
After taking a well-deserved break and tiding fans over with a hits collection last year, Seether are set to return with a new studio album. The band just announced that their sixth studio release will be titled 'Isolate and Medicate,' and it's currently on schedule for a July 1 street date.
After a successful inaugural Rise Above Fest in 2012, Seether are bringing the event to a new venue in 2014. This year, Avenged Sevenfold will be the headliners for the May 10 festival in Bangor, Maine. Seether will of course be on the bill, as will Motorhead, Hellyeah, Trivium, Kyng, Devour the Day, Black Stone Cherry, Muckler's Circle and Skindred.
Seether frontman Shaun Morgan is the latest rocker to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela. A huge amount of musicians and other public figures have memorialized Mandela since he passed away on Dec. 5, but as a native South African, Morgan's statement is unique as he witnessed firsthand what it was like in his home country when Mandela was released from prison after 27 years.
