Shaun Morgan Says Seether’s New Album Is Finished

It looks like Seether’s new album is officially finished. Frontman Shaun Morgan confirmed the news during an acoustic livestream earlier today (May 24).

Morgan said the following:

“The new album is done and basically gonna be, I think, released in August at this point. 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. And yeah, we’ve kind of whittled down the album to include 13 tracks.”

“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. 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.”

Corey Lowery Says Shaun Morgan Has About “30 Different Ideas” For Seether’s Next Album

During a recent interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF radio station, guitarist Corey Lowery offered an update on Seether’s new album plans. According to him, frontman Shaun Morgan has about “30 different ideas” for the effort.

Lowery said the following:

“We’re gonna start working on a new album towards the end of the year, probably. We’re just doing weekend fly dates and stuff now…

Shaun’s got, like, 30 different ideas. He started laying down some vocals to, I think, three or four of ’em. It’s gonna be incredible, stuff that he’s coming up with.”

Bassist Dale Stewart added:

“We can really do it like an in-house thing now, which is great. We don’t have to have any sort of external influences.”

Lowery continued:

“There’s some demos right now. [Dale’s] got some acoustic ideas I’m dying to hear. I’ve heard a couple.”
