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 12th, 2017 through Morgan’s new Canine Riot Records via Concord / Caroline Australia

Seether - Nothing Left

Listen to Billboard’s exclusive track premiere of “Nothing Left” and read the Shaun Morgan Q&A here.

Poison the Parish was recorded at Blackbird Studio in Nashville, Tennessee and marks the first album produced in its entirety by front man Morgan.  Among the heaviest and emotionally pure efforts of the 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.”

 Lead single “Let You Down,” has quickly leapt into rock radio’s Top 5 and shows no sign of slowing down. The band also previously shared “Stoke the Fire,” which debuted via Revolver.

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. 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 U.S., 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 22nd and Sunday, July 23rd at Darling’s Waterfront Park in Bangor, Maine. Performers include Seether, Korn, Shinedown, Stone Sour, Skillet, Halestorm, Falling in Reverse, and more.
