Seether finally announced their brand new album, which we were all waiting for anxiously! The album announcement came with a release date, pre-order information, a track listing and a new song!
The album is called Poison The Parish and will be released on May 12, but four different pre-order bundles are available now. To go with this is a new song, "Let You Down" which follows suit with some of their older works in being very dark. Head on over to the Creator's Blog to read more about that -but please be sure to listen to it for yourself below to avoid spoilers!
When doing my research for this article, all I found was the deluxe edition, which features fifteen songs.
The Poison Level one features a handful of things, such as the obvious album and T-shirts, but also a handmade Poison The Parish collectible latex figure, a 18 x 24 signed Poison The Parish artwork poster, an engraved wooden book box, and a Seether skeleton key bottle opener. That bundle is $350 and very limited.
The figurines are limited edition, there's only 50 of them going to be made worldwide.
As for the Cult Leader bundle, its $1,200 and features all the same stuff as the Poison level, and a custom Poison The Parish Shaun Morgan Artist Series Schecter guitar. Only five are going to be made all together, and it is made to be a replica of Shaun's guitar. Only five of those are being made, and that is where most of the price comes from.
Two other bundles are available and we encourage you to go check them out over on the official website, along with "Let You Down" which is below.
All of this is very exciting and much overdue. We're excited to hear more from Seether, and we encourage everyone to go check it out. And remember that Seether will be performing at several festivals such as Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion and the fifth annual Rise Above Fest.
For further information, please head on over to Seether's official website, or the respective festival websites.
I Prevail announced another tour that will happen in this April! It's going to be from April 28 through May 19, and actually ends with Rock On The Range. Several festivals will be happening during this tour, and all but Vamps will be performing at many of them.
Tickets are not on sale just yet, but they still have tickets available for the Lifelines tour -which they are on right now! For full tour dates and ticket information, please head on over to I Prevail's official website
I feel its been a known fact that Seether will be releasing new music sometime this year. However, I heard on Octane Radio that the rumor had it that Seether would have new music out this week.
They still haven't fully confirmed it, but they definitely are hinting at it. They've been posting slightly ominous photos and snippets on their Facebook page since the 10th of February. And then last night, their Facebook states that they plan to go live at 10 Am today.
I also looked, and their website has a countdown going on it. At the time of this article, the countdown read One Day, 3 hours and 33 minutes. So clearly an announcement, or possible song release is coming quickly.
My curiosities are quite high, and I can't help but wonder -are they going to make the announcement live?
I will keep you posted! But meanwhile, don't forget that you can catch Seether live at a handful of festivals this year. Those festivals include Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, and of course their annual, Rise Above Fest. For further information, please visit the respective festival websites and stay turned to Seether's website and social media for all their upcoming announcements.
The fifth annual Rise Above festival has been announced! This year though, it's going to be bigger than any year prior to it.
Instead of just being one day, it's going to be two days! Rise Above 2017 will be happening on Saturday, July 22, and Sunday July 23, and as always will be benefitting suicide awareness.
For those who do not know, the Rise Above fest was something started by Seether, as suicide is something very close to their hearts. Frontman, Shawn Morgan, lost his brother to suicide several years back. Suicide is never the answer, and I for one appreciate that so many people gather to bring awareness.
This year, the festival will be headlined by Korn and Shinedown, and supported by many fantastic bands such as Stone Sour, Seether, Halestorm, Skillet, Falling In Reverse, Red Sun Rising, All That Remains, Pop Evil, Theory of A Deadman, and many more.
Tickets do not appear to be available just yet, but they're definitely coming soon!
By the way, many of these bands will be at other festivals happening prior to this one. Such as Seether, Starset, All That Remains, and many more! We personally will be seeing a few of these bands at Fort Rock, but you can catch some of them all over the country at other festivals such as Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Rocklahoma, Rock On The Range, River City Rockfest, Northern Invasion, and probably something else I've forgotten! For further information, please visit the respective festival websites.
I Prevail has been on a tour with Wage War, Islander and Assuming We Survive for a little over a week now. Unfortunately, it's still that time of year where everyone is getting sick, and they just had to admit their vocalist, Brian Burkheiser to the hospital. He's come down with pneumonia and a flu, so the poor guy is down right miserable, and they were forced to cancel two shows because of it.
The first was tonight's show in Flint, MI, and then tomorrow's in Grand Rapids is being postponed. The shows will be happening now instead on Sunday, March 19 (Flint, MI) and Monday, March 20 (Grand Rapids, MI). Below is their statement from their Facebook page.
IMPORTANT - this weekend's shows in Flint (2/18) and Grand Rapids (2/19) have been cancelled. They are being rescheduled ASAP. The new dates will be announced soon. Of course all tickets and VIP upgrades will be honored. Please spread the word to anyone you know who planned on attending either of these shows.
Brian was admitted to the hospital this morning and is currently being treated for pneumonia and a pretty nasty flu. He's doing his best to get back at it as soon as possible.
Missing shows is one of the hardest things to go through as musicians. These are our first and hopefully our last.
Love you guys and see you soon.
Someone commented on the photo above, which was taken from their Facebook, asking if the tickets would be refundable. The band answered soon after stating that they are 100% refundable, and told the fan to message their page directly, or just get in touch with the place they purchased the tickets. With that, they also apologized for the inconvenience.
I Prevail is handling this very professionally, and lovingly. Fans are reacting just as well, sending Brian a lot of well wishes.
We would like to join them on that, and wish him a speedy recovery so he can get back to doing what he loves. I Prevail's tour will be going on through March 17, and after that they will get to perform at several festivals such as Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville and Carolina Rebellion!
For further tour information, please head over to I Prevail's official website, and for festival information, please go to the respective festival websites.
A couple months back, Papa Roach released their first new song since their F.E.A.R album came out in January 2015. That song was called "Crooked Teeth", and will be featured on their upcoming, currently untitled tenth studio album.
It now is accompanied by another track called, "Help." Which is extremely different for them, and has an almost poppy feel to it. Yet it still has the classic Papa Roach touch to it, and definitely touches on the mental health aspect. They've always had a track record of speaking about mental illness, dating all the way back to their first big hit, "Last Resort."
This one flat out says, "I think I need help." Whether that's referring to mental health, or rather addiction problems, we are not sure. Vocalist Jacoby Shaddix, has dealt with addictions in the past, but who knows if this song even applies. Listen to the song below, and please share your thoughts on the track.
Personally, we really like the track, and would love to sit down and speak with the band about this track at Fort Rock this year. Papa Roach will be performing at not only Fort Rock, but several other festivals as well such as Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion, Rock On The Range, and the Rock City Rockfest.
For further information, please head on over to the respective festival websites. There's also some additional performances listed over on Papa Roach's official website.
