Seether has completed their eighth studio album, which is slated for a summer release. However an official announce date has not yet been announced but frontman Shaun Morgan said that they are hoping for an “August” release.
In a recent livestream, Frontman Shaun Morgan said that the new album is “done” and has 13-tracks on the forthcoming new record.
“A lot of it was written over the course of about 10 months. There were about 40 to 45 songs in contention for the album. We ended up settling on recording 21 tracks, which is more than we’ve recorded before,” Morgan explained. “And yeah, we’ve kind of whittled down the album to include 13 tracks.”
He then gushed that this is his “favorite album” to date by far saying that the songs are some of the strongest material that they’ve ever written.
“It’s my favorite album we’ve done to date — by far. The songs, I think, are the strongest songs we’ve written. I’m really super proud of it. I produced it again, with Matt Hyde [SLAYER, DEFTONES] engineering and Corey Lowery [guitar], my boy, as assistant engineer, and I think it turned out killer. We worked in a little place called Dark Horse studio [in Franklin, Tennessee], and we did 21 tracks, I think, in about 17 days, which, I think, is a testament to everybody having had the demos for a while and having learned it, so by the time we got in there, we didn’t waste any time,” Morgan explained.
“We worked long days — we started at about ten o’clock in the morning and worked till about ten o’clock at night. So there was no noon-till-six-type stuff that I’ve had to deal with in the past. I think you’ll like the new album. I do. [Laughs] So hopefully that’s universal.”
