Congrats are in order to August Burns Red, our newest entry into the Cage Match Hall of Fame with their single 'Fault Line.' But after dominating for five straight matches, it's time for two new competitors to enter the cage.
Whoever said that good things come in threes was obviously referring to the pack of trios that provide the core lineup of the ‘Triple Threat’ Tour. Headlined by the trio Seether with support by fellow three-piece acts Sick Puppies and Kyng, there’s a lot to love about the number three. Of course, opening quintet Young Guns broke the 'three' chain, but more of that later.
In the ever-changing world of the music industry, it's a rarity for bands to reach a decade with the same representation, but Seether are still going strong with Wind-Up Records after hitting the 10-year mark. To help celebrate the occasion, Seether were surprised backstage by President/CEO Ed Vetri and their manager Jack Rovner with plaques that marked the accomplishments the band have reached over the past decade.
For a lot of bands, the sooner they can record new music and get it out to the public, the better it is, and sometimes having a hit record can stand in the way of those plans. For Seether, however, the group is relishing their current success and don't want to shortchange the 2011 album 'Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray' in any way.
Seether were coming off a live album to fill the void while singer Shaun Morgan completed a stint in rehab and dealt with the suicide death of his brother. The band was experiencing their biggest break between records and had established a fairly definable sound when the 'Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces' album arrived in 2007.
