Seether Announce First New Album in Three Years

Three years since the release of Poison the Parish, Seether are back with their eighth studio album Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum.

Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum, which means If you want peace, prepare for war, is slated for release on August 28 on Fantasy Records. It was produced by Seether‘s frontman Shaun Morgan and engineered by Matt Hyde, (AFI, Deftones). As well as being the first album in three years, it’s also the first to feature newest band member Corey Lowery (formerly of Saint Asonia and Stuck Mojo).  

“These songs are carefully crafted to nestle in your ears like a tiny velvet rabbit clutching a switch-blade,” says frontman Shaun Morgan. “This whole album is kind of me going through that process. I’m exposing myself to a degree I’m not normally comfortable with,” he says. “But I think it’s OK. I’m proud to be a little bit more vulnerable on this album.

The 13-track album is being pegged as some of their strongest material to date, so we are excited to hear it. Tell us what you think of the first single “Dangerous” which premieres today. You can watch the animated music video here:

To help fill the gap created from the band currently being unable to tour, they have created a series of social media sessions showcasing the band members at home. They have included live-stream Q&As and acoustic performances from Shaun Morgan, cooking instructionals with Dale Stewart, CrossFit workouts with Corey Lowery, and drumming playthroughs with John Humphrey. Be sure to check out their “hanging at home” series on their Facebook, YouTube and Twitch accounts. 
Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum will be available in CD, vinyl and digital download formats and is available to pre-order here. There are various limited edition and signed versions available so you’ll need to be quick to secure your copy.
