Out today (May 12) is Poison The Parish, the seventh studio album from Seether.
The trio recorded the set at famed Blackbird Studio in Nashville, with frontman Shaun Morgan producing himself for the first time. Led by the single "Let You Down" it represents a return to Seether's heavier hard rock roots, and Morgan tells us he's very happy with the results:
"The whole album is something I'm really proud of at this point...I think this time we've achieved a sound that's much closer to what I think we actually sound like and to what I actually hear when I’m writing demos and when I'm trying to sort of materialize these songs and create them. Often it's quite difficult to recreate the sound in your head and get it to come through the speakers. I think this time we've managed to achieve that. I'm excited about it."
In addition to "Let Me Down" the group has also released the tracks "Stoke The Fire," "Nothing Left" and "Count Me In" prior to Poison The Parish's release on Morgan's own Canine Riot Records label.
Seether hits the road on Sunday (May 14) for a North American tour that currently has shows booked into August.
