FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 10, 2024 – Rock music stalwarts Seether are set to unleash their ninth studio album, The Surface Seems So Far, this fall, continuing their legacy as champions of raw emotion in a landscape dominated by fleeting trends and manufactured sounds. The first single off the unapologetically aggressive 11-track collection, due out September 20th via Fantasy Records, is the blistering album opener “Judas Mind” – PRESS HERE to listen and PRESS HERE to watch the official lyric video.

“‘Judas Mind’ is a song about reaching an understanding that there are bad actors in our lives that are trying to force an outcome for us that we don’t see as our destiny,” shares frontman and songwriter Shaun Morgan. “It’s about rising up against people who have a vision for you that you don’t share.”

Known for their enduring anthems like “Broken,” “Fake It” and “Words as Weapons,” Seether returns with The Surface Seems So Far, showcasing their trademark blend of aggression and introspection. The track list for the new album – the follow-up to 2020’s Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum, which boasted three No. 1 hits – sets the tone for an honest and exhilarating journey through themes of melancholy (“Regret”), self-reflection (“Same Mistakes”), and raw emotion (“Dead on the Vine”), with catchy hooks and driving bombast emphasizing its many twists and turns. Adding to Seether’s impressive catalog, Morgan and his bandmates – Dale Stewart (bass), John Humphrey (drums), and Corey Lowery (guitar) – sound alternately confident and confessional, full of vitriol and vulnerability throughout The Surface Seems So Far, which Morgan produced with veteran producer Matt Hyde (Deftones, Slayer) as engineer and mixer. Full album track list below. The Surface Seems So Far is available now to pre-order on vinyl and CD and pre-save on DSPs – PRESS HERE.

Seether, known for their authentic and electrifying live show, will support the release of The Surface Seems So Far on the road this fall on a co-headlining tour with Skillet. The 18-date outing launches September 17th in Asheville and will travel across the U.S. stopping in such cities as Baltimore, Boston, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Kansas City, St. Louis, Houston, Dallas, Albuquerque, Denver, Omaha, and more before wrapping October 20th in Minneapolis. Seether is also set to perform at Louder Than Life and Aftershock Festival during the fall tour. See below for full list of upcoming tour dates. Artist presale tickets will be available today (July 10th) at 10am local time with the Spotify presale beginning tomorrow, July 11th at 12pm local time and the public onsale commencing Friday, July 12th at 10am local time. Visit for ticketing details and to purchase.

With five gold and platinum albums and two dozen Billboard Rock Airplay Top 10 hits including 20 No. 1s at U.S. radio throughout a career spanning over two decades, Seether is as vibrant and relevant as ever. Hailing from South Africa, Shaun Morgan proudly draws inspiration from his grunge and hard rock roots, crafting a unique sonic identity that propelled the band’s Gold-certified American debut and continues to resonate deeply with fans worldwide. The rock quartet, who also founded the annual Rise Above Fest for nearly ten years to raise awareness for suicide prevention and mental illness, remains a beacon of integrity on The Surface Seems So Far, which promises to captivate both loyal fans and newcomers alike with its blend of memorable hooks, driving rhythms, and unapologetic rock spirit.
