Seether Makes Plans to Release Greatest Hits Collection
Seether announced earlier this year that they were working on a couple new tracks, and now it has been revealed that those three tracks will be featured on a two-disc retrospective collection called Seether 2002 – 2013, which will be hitting stores October 29. The first new single, a cover of Veruca Salt’s 1994 hit song “Seether,” where the band got their name, will be hitting radio next week (September 10). In addition to the three new singles, the album will also feature all 11 of the bands number one singles, including “Remedy,” “Fake It,” “Country Song” and “Rise Above This,” plus rare B-side tracks.
“Well, it’s official . . . We are ‘one of those’ bands. We are at a point in our journey that we have decided to bookend this era of our career with our upcoming greatest hits release Seether: 2002-2013. When we were given the task of assembling the track listing . . . we knew it wasn’t going to be easy. But, believe it or not, we are also fans of the band and wanted to approach it with what ‘we (as) a Seether fan’ would like to hear in a ‘Seether Greatest Hits,’” the band said.
The band will also be hitting the road to support the album on a semi-acoustic tour being called “An Intimate Night with Seether.” The group will be playing at iconic venues across the world starting November 5th at Union Chapel in London. The tour will also be making stops in Netherlands, Germany, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, France, Ukraine, Russia and South Africa as well as the U.S. – although dates for the states have yet to be announced.
Seether frontman Shaun Morgan discussed the decline of the music industry a while back saying, “There are those days where this thought creeps in that it’s no longer fun. That’s the scary thing, you know. And if we can get to a point where we can reverse that and chase those thoughts away, that would be my main immediate goal, ’cause the fact that I’ve invested so much time of my life into this and had such a long time in this business, only to now be starting to think of thoughts of not being in the business anymore, that for me is kind of a — we’re not gonna break up or anything, it’s just having the thoughts.”
So get excited for this greatest hits collection and lets hope that this isn’t the last we hear from Seether.
