On June 15, 2004, Seether re-released their first album, Disclaimer. Quite fittingly, this album is called Disclaimer II and features the twelve original songs, just all slightly different. They remixed the tracks, but not too much where they were vastly different.
This verison of the album did alright on charts. I wouldn't say it did fantastic, but it certainly did not do terrible. It reached number 12 in New Zealand, 38 on Austrian and Australian charts, 43 on German charts, and 53 on the Billboard 200, here in the US.
The only single for the album became one of their absolute biggest hits. It may actually be their biggest hit, actually. That song is, "Broken", featuring Amy Lee. "Broken" was on the original Disclaimer as well, but due to the popularity, and Shaun Morgan dating Amy at the time, they decided to re-record the song with her in it. It became a massive hit, and I can almost guarentee everyone has heard this beautiful version, so it feels redundant to talk about it for too long.
One of my personal favorite tracks is, "Fuck It." Which really is just a good song to play when you're trying to get fired up, or are slightly pissed off yourself. Its not exactly a nice song, but its very catchy and is very good to try to get yourself away from someone that's clearly just....well, fucking with your head. "You're out of luck -can't get a piece of me. It's all blown up. Don't even fuck with me. I cannot please you forever. I cannot please you at all." You hit your limit, and eventually you're done. If you're someone like me that struggles with giving people far too many chances, I recommend listening to this song. And I mean really listening to it, it may help inspire you to break against that and actually be done with a toxic person.
Another favorite of mine is, "Out of My Way", which is all about doing something your way, not someone else's way. Sometimes you need to put people behind you and take opprotunities when you see them. This song expresses that perfectly, and I think it too could be very inspiring.
I highly recommend listening to this verison of the album, I feel like it really helped Seether grow into the band they are today. Not that Disclaimer wasn't good, because it most definitely was. Seether has come along way since then, and have done a lot more. Please be sure to read the reviews we have for Karma And Effect, Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces, Holding Onto Strings Much Better Left To Fray, and Isolation And Medication. Along with all of those is an interview we did almost exactly two years ago with Seether's drummer, John Humphrey!
Feel free to use all of this, and of course all of their music, to get excited for everything they have coming up. Seether is going to perform at several festivals in 2017, such as Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville and Carolina Rebellion. For further information, please check out the festival websites, and follow Seether on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date with them and all they do.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
