Lead Single “Let You Down” is #1 at Rock Radio For Second Consecutive Week
New Album Generating Rave Reviews
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 22nd, 2017 - SEETHER’s new album Poison the Parish, has blasted out of the gate landing at #14 on Billboard’s Top 200 album’s chart after selling more than 31,000 copies in the U.S. this past week. (The record also debuted at #8 on the Billboard’s Current Albums chart, which measures physical sales, and digital downloads.) Poison the Parish, the multi-platinum selling band’s seventh studio LP was released on May 12th, 2017 through Morgan's newly launched Canine Riot Records via Fantasy Records.
For the second consecutive week, lead single "Let You Down" is #1 at rock radio across the U.S., the 13th chart topper of the band’s illustrious career.
Poison the Parish, recorded at Blackbird Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, marks the first album produced entirely by front man Shaun Morgan. Perhaps the heaviest and most expressive collection they’ve ever released, the album is earning their best notices in years.
"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."
"A return to the darker and heavier style of music that Seether built their name upon."
— Alternative Press
"Heavier and more powerful than anything released in recent memory by the band, Poison the Parish brings the band back to their glory days."
— New Noise
"Poison the Parish is the kind of album that deserves to shoot to the forefront of pop culture. Seether are three real dudes, rocking real instruments, and writing real songs. This is just the poison we need out there. Drink it down."
— All Axess
"…a sonic journey unlike their contemporaries or their former selves."
— Cryptic Rock
Morgan’s recent in-depth and revealing profile at Psychology Today is a must read.
