Song tops No 1 at rock radio
Seether has claimed the No. 1 spot at rock radio for the current week with “Dangerous,” the lead single off their new album Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum (“If You Want Peace, Prepare For War”) album released August 28th via Fantasy Records. The milestone marks the multi-platinum rock band’s 16th No. 1 song and 20th Top 5 hit over the course of their impressive 20-year career.
Recently, the band got up close and personal in a new episode of Fantasy Flashcards, available on Fantasy Record’s YouTube page. Produced by Fantasy Records, this revealing, six minute episode features Seether answering fun, unusual, thought-provoking questions that shows a different side of the best-selling hard rock band.
To celebrate their 20th anniversary, Seether will also release three of their classic albums – Disclaimer II, Karma and Effect, and Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces – on vinyl for the very first time on November 13 via Craft Recordings. Released early in the band’s remarkable run, these albums exemplify the distinctive musicianship and song-craft for which Seether are best known and helped solidify them as one of the most successful hard rock bands in the world.
Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum is Seether’s eighth studio album, and first in three years, and was produced by Morgan and engineered and mixed by Matt Hyde (Deftones, AFI) in Nashville from December 2019 through January 2020. The album’s 13 new tracks draw on the dark and raw honesty of grunge’s epic guitar attack and the South African underground punk and metal that Morgan (and bandmate Dale Stewart) grew up on.
The band is joined on the album by newest member, Corey Lowery (ex-guitarist/vocalist for Saint Asonia and Stuck Mojo), Morgan’s friend of 16 years, who also assistant-engineered the album. The album debuted to impressive chart success in its first week of release, topping 15,000 in overall sales and placing at No. 37 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart as well as No. 5 on the Top Current Album Chart. Other impressive markers include placing No. 3 for Current Alternative Albums, No. 3 for Current Rock Albums and No. 2 for Current Hard Rock Music.
