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.

Evanescence singer Amy Lee has admitted to Launch Radio Networks that she was a little nervous about being able to draw enough fans to fill the seats on the band's current North American tour. "It's a little scary, because you always look at the numbers," Lee said. "Like, when we're booked to play a place that's maybe 15,000 or more people, that's a really large amount of people. And when you're thinking of it in terms of, like, 'I'm headlining, can we really pull that many people?', it does make you a little nervous, I guess. You're always, like, just kind of hoping until that last week, when you start to see them really selling, you're like, "Okay, good, whew! Awesome.' (laughs)"
Seether, Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace also appear on the tour.

SEETHER singer and guitarist Shaun Morgan recently strolled down the red carpet at the American Music Awards with his girlfriend, EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee, in full view of the media. Morgan told Launch why they took that stroll. "It was intended to lay some rumors to rest that involved Amy and I, 'cause we've been together now for about six months, and we wanted to lay all the rumors to rest and say, 'Look, here we go, we are together.' It was never a secret, but I was involved in a divorce which had taken a long time to resolve, and it was just something that we had to wait before we could let everyone know about."
Morgan says he hopes to have Amy and SEVENDUST frontman Lajon Witherspoon sing on the next SEETHER album, which is due out in the spring or summer of 2004.
SEETHER will continue touring in the U.S. until December 21. After a holiday break, they'll do a two-week tour of their homeland, South Africa, then settle down to make their second album.
