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 #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.
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, CA. This event is the official after-show for the opening night of the sold-out Aftershock Festival, where the band will be appearing on October 8th with Metallica, Rancid and others. Tickets for Vicennial – Live are on sale now at the band’s official website.
Since Seether aren’t able to tour outside of the US right now, they wanted to find another way to bring this special show to their fans around the world. On November 11t, the band is hosting a special Vicennial – Live Online event through a partnership with 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 Q&A sessions and virtual meet and greets.
Reflecting on the band’s career, singer Shaun 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.”
Vicennial includes the following tracks:
“Words As Weapons”
“Let You Down”
“Rise Above This”
“Nobody Praying for Me”
“Betray and Degrade”
“Same Damn Life”
