From: South Africa
Last Known Status: Active
After forming in 1999, Seether (originally Saron Gas) quickly gained notoriety in their home country's anemic rock market. The band's South African release, Fragile, became one of the best selling titles of the year, and Seether emerged as a top live draw. This was no small feat in a land where rock bands play second banana to indigenous music and pop.
Seether's brand of passive-aggressive rock - both highly accessible, yet angry - lead to their signing with Wind-Up Records and a spot on Ozzfest in 2002.

Rocklahoma will rock the Midwest with a lineup featuring Kid Rock, Five Finger Death Punch, Staind, Twisted Sister, Deftones, Motörhead, and many more from May 23rd - 25th at “Catch the Fever” Festival Grounds in Pryor, OK. The three-day camping festival is presented by Bud Light.

“I initially questioned whether or not we would be able to top last year’s Rocklahoma lineup this time around,” says Joe Litvag, Rocklahoma’s co-executive producer for AEG Live. “But with some of the biggest names in the rock world today like Kid Rock, Five Finger Death Punch, Seether and Deftones playing alongside Rocklahoma legends like Twisted Sister, Jackyl, Tom Kiefer of Cinderella and Kix, there is not a doubt in my mind that we just raised the bar! Memorial Day Weekend will never be the same!”
Dee Snider of Twisted Sister explains: "I view this festival as sort of a ‘Royal Rumble’ of rock; it's every band for itself, each trying to claim the belt. When Twisted Sister is done that night, the promoters are going to need to change the name of the event to 'I Wanna Rocklahoma'!"
Staind’s Mike Mushok also says, "Totally stoked to play Rocklahoma again! I'm looking forward to a great day of music shared with some amazing fans!”

Hurricane Irene is roaring up the east coast of the U.S. and has caused organizers of the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival to reschedule a Sunday date in suburban Boston.
The show, slated for the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Mass., is right in the projected path of the massive storm, which is expected to slam into the Massachusetts coastline sometime Sunday afternoon - just as Avenged Sevenfold, Seether, Bullet for My Valentine, Black Tide and the rest of the bill would be on the venue's outdoor stages.
“Safety first…We don’t want any of our fans to get hurt,” said M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold. “We decided to move the show from Sunday to Tuesday so all of you crazy fucks can make it and stay safe.”
"We apologize for any inconvenience to the fans, but safety is our first concern. We want everyone to be able to enjoy a full afternoon and evening of rock at UPROAR,” said Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival co-producer John Oakes. “After the Category 3 storm blows through New England on Sunday, UPROAR promises to bring a Category 5 rock storm on Tuesday.”
The tour starts in Camden, N.J. Friday and hits Scranton, Penn. on Saturday before taking the storm hiatus until Tuesday's Boston show.

"Hey Everyone, Johnny here... How long has it been? Almost a year? That's crazy and far too long for us to go without playing some shows. If you've been a fan of Seether for awhile, you know this band does not take vacations!! We are a touring band and we love being on the road...and 2010 will be the return of SEEEEETHER-R-R_R!!!
"Well, that didn't sound as cool writing it but, just imagine the 'Truck and Tractor Pull voice-over guy' doing that 'Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!!!' thing. We have been in the studio for the last few weeks with the 'mighty' Brendan O' Brien producing and the new stuff is sounding great! Brendan is the perfect fit for us and working with him has been a blast. So, with us hard at work it's time for a little 'play-time'!! We have some shows starting at the end of April thru May (check website for dates near you!!). It's time to let Seether do what we do best...sweat on stage, bang the crap out of our instruments and knock over a few beer bottles, in the process. We are really looking forward to these shows!! We might even have a few surprises in the setlist for you. See you guys out there - We have missed you!"
