Currently leading a number of Billboard’s Hard Rock charts, Seether offers another strong preview from its upcoming new album today with the release of their heavy new track “Beg.”
The adrenaline-fueled new rave-up is accompanied by another bold animated music video from noted Turkish director Mertcan Mertbilek(Santana, Ray Charles, Ravi Shankar, Elvis Costello).
“This is our second collaboration with Mertcan and I wanted to get his interpretation of the lyrics,” explained Shaun Morgan. “I sketched a rough idea, and he ran with it to create a video that I think is powerful and provocative. Animation allows far more freedom to create compelling visual art and I love how this video turned out.”
“Beg” is the third track to be released from Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum (“If You Want Peace, Prepare For War”) due August 28th, 2020 via Fantasy Records. It’s the multi-platinum selling band’s first new album in three years and features some of the strongest material of Seether’s illustrious career. Pre-order the new album HERE.
Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum is Seether’s eighth studio album and was produced by Morgan and engineered and mixed by Matt Hyde (Deftones, AFI) in Nashville from December 2019 through January 2020. The album’s 13 new tracks draw on the dark and raw honesty of grunge’s epic guitar attack and the South African underground punk and metal that Morgan (and bandmate Dale Stewart) grew up on.
The band is joined on the album by newest member, Corey Lowery (ex-guitarist/vocalist for Saint Asonia and Stuck Mojo), Morgan’s friend of 16 years, who also assistant-engineered the album. “Corey has a lot of experience and is an inspiring guitarist as well; he’s the older brother I’ve always wanted,” Morgan says. Seether’s rock-solid rhythm section is bassist and founding member Dale Stewart, and drummer John Humphrey (who joined in 2003).
