Seether Get Heavy on New Song ‘Stoke the Fire’

Subscribe to Q103 on

Seether promised they’d be returning to the heavier sound featured on their earliest albums and the new Poison the Parish track “Stoke the Fire” finds the band making good on their word!

The mood is set with swirling volume swells that give way to a driving riff as droning leads pan from right to left. Bringing the energy to a simmer, the verse begins subdued with rolling momentum into an explosive chorus. About two-thirds of the way through, the song reaches an aggressive climax with a low-slung, beefy rhythm providing the foundation for Shaun Morgan‘s enraged screams.

“I think [this album] is probably something heavier than we’ve done in a while,” Morgan told Loudwire Nights host Toni Gonzalez. “There’s more of a return to the sound we had on the first few albums and I know that people wanted that.”

Poison the Parish, which was recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, Tenn., will be out on May 12, serving as the first release on Morgan’s new label imprint, Canine Riot Records. The album can be pre-ordered at iTunes with instant gratification downloads on “Stoke the Fire” and the previously released cut “Let You Down.’

Seether have a massive tour booked out stretching from April 29 through Aug. 20 and they’ve added Sevendust‘s Clint Lowery to their live lineup. Support will come from  Letters From the Fire (May 2 through 27; July 16 through Aug. 20), Through Fire (June 1 through June 7), Kaleido (May 2 through June 10) and Big Story (from July 16 through August 20) and there will be breaks along the way. Check our 2017 Guide to Rock + Metal Tours for further details.

Every ticket order will come with a physical copy of the new album and a portion of all tickets sold on Seether’s upcoming world tour will benefit the Rise Above Fund to aid suicide prevention. The organization is also a partner of the band’s Rise Above festival, which has expanded to two days in 2017.
