Seether’s upcoming album, Vicennial – 2 Decades Of Seether, tells the remarkable story of the South African quartet’s career and chart-topping success. The 20 songs on this compilation have amassed 16 No. 1 chart positions and all are Top 5 multi-format radio hits. This collection is an audio summary of the first 20 years of Billboard’s No. 8 all-time Mainstream Rock artists, which covers the 40-year history of the chart’s existence. The album, due for release on October 15 via Craft Recordings, was carefully curated by frontman Shaun Morgan and highlights tracks from his band’s eight full-length albums — including early breakthrough singles “Broken” and “Fine Again”; the recent No. 1 on both the Rock and Active Rock charts, “Dangerous”; as well as their fan favorite cover of Wham’s “Careless Whisper.” Known for their dedication to their fans, Seether selected fan submitted artwork for the album cover. Pre-orders for Vicennial – 2 Decades Of Seether begin today, including a Seether.com-exclusive 1,000-unit limited-edition custom mixed opaque purple 2-LP vinyl.
On October 7, to celebrate the album’s release, the band will perform all 20 tracks in sequence live one time only At Ace Of Spades in Sacramento, California. This event is an Aftershock After Party for the opening night of the sold-out Aftershock festival, where the band will be appearing on October 8 with Metallica, Rancid and others.
Since Seether isn’t able to tour outside of the U.S. right now, they wanted to find another way to bring this special show to their fans around the world. On November 11, the band is hosting a special “Vicennial – Live Online” event through a partnership with the premium digital live platform Moment House. There will be shows at 6PM PST, 6PM GMT and 6PM JST where fans are able to vote for that time zone’s 10-song set. Additionally, the band will be appearing live for question-and-answer sessions and virtual meet-and-greets. Tickets for “Vicennial – Live Online,” as well as bundles that include merch and an exclusive 500-unit limited-edition custom mixed opaque pink color 2-LP vinyl of Vicennial, are on sale now at Seether.com.
Reflecting on the band’s career, Morgan says: “Twenty years is a major milestone for us; we’ve been on an amazing ride — alongside our fans — and we plan to continue that journey. Putting Vicennial together gave us a chance to look back on our body of work over the years, and to rediscover some of our older songs during the pandemic that brought us all to a standstill. We hope that everyone enjoys the compilation as much as we do now, after this historic lockdown, and we look forward to seeing our fans again at live shows in the future.”
