Seether‘s fifth studio album will be titled Isolate And Medicate and is set to arrive on July 1st. A first single called “Words As Weapons” will hit rock radio and iTunes next Thursday (May 1st). The new disc will follow up 2011’s Holding Onto Strings Better Left To Fray.
Frontman Shaun Morgan told us that he can’t wait for the new album to come out:
“This album I think is very focused, and I think it’s very reminiscent of our early stuff, but also having touches of sort of the more melodic side, and I mean, I think there’s gonna be some stuff on there that people are gonna be quite surprised by. So I’m really excited for people to hear it.”
- Seether began recording the new album at the end of January with producer Brendan O’Brien, whose other clients include Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen.
- The band just launched a headlining tour, with support from Black Stone Cherry and Skindred, that pulls into Mobile, Alabama on Thursday night (April 24th).
- The tour will include Seether’s own Rise Above Fest on May 10th in Bangor, Maine, which will feature performances from Avenged Sevenfold,Hellyeah, Motorhead
