First single “Words as Weapons” hits #1 at active rock radio
Seether have a lot to celebrate this week. Their sixth studio album, Isolate and Medicate (The Bicycle Music Company/Concord Music Group) lands at #4 on Billboard’s Top Albums chart with over 37,000 albums sold as the album’s first single, “Words As Weapons” rises to #1 on the Active Rock Radio chart. Continuing their amazing run as one of alternative rock’s most consistent hit makers, “Words As Weapons” is the bands 12th #1 hit and ranks among their quickest chart climbers.
Artist Direct raves: “The first taste of 2014’s Isolate & Medicate upholds all of the pillars of the group’s sound that fans adore worldwide. At the same time, there’s an airy melody and elegant lyricism that hints at marked evolution.”
Loudwire concurs: “Several albums into their career, Seether prove they’re as vital as ever with their latest disc, ‘Isolate and Medicate.’ The group offers one of their finest albums to date by digging deep and expressing themselves in a variety of ways.”
Coming off a successful European tour where they played some of the biggest festivals in the world, Seether went straight to New York City last week for a sold out record release day show at The Gramercy Theatre. They are getting ready to head back out for a mix of headlining and festival shows this summer, including a main stage return to the 2014 Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival kicking off on August 15th in Detroit, MI. Seether and Godsmack lead the stellar festival line-up with support from Skillet, Buckcherry, Escape the Fate and more.
“We’d like offer a BIG congrats to Seether, truly one of the hardest working bands in rock,” stated Jake Wisely, President of The Bicycle Music Company. He added, “We are also thrilled by the effort of our partners at Concord Music Group,
simultaneously achieving a top 5 album debut and a #1 single at Active Rock radio, proving once and for all that Concord rocks!”

Seether Talk New Album ‘Isolate and Medicate,’ Band Camaraderie + Touring
Seether recently announced that the band’s sixth studio album, ‘Isolate and Medicate,’ will arrive on July 1. And shortly after making the announcement, frontman Shaun Morgan, bassist Dale Stewart and drummer John Humphrey spoke with ‘Loudwire Nights’ host Full Metal Jackie about the new disc. Check out the chat below.
Loudwire Nights, Full Metal Jackie. On the show with us tonight, Shaun, Dale and John from Seether. How are you guys doing?
We finally have the details on Seether’s sixth album, ‘Isolate and Medicate’ coming out on July 1. The band is on tour now and we’ve heard this brand new songs ‘Words as Weapons,’ a great new tune. Guys, Seether have always been regarded for its high caliber songwriting. How has the way you go about songwriting changed over the years? What, if anything, was different about the way you wrote these new songs?
Shaun Morgan: Most of the songs come about with me tooling around in my little office/studio but this time we worked at least a third of the songs in a room together as a band. We went to Oklahoma. It was right before Christmastime, it was freezing. Who wants to be in Oklahoma right before Christmas time when it’s freezing?
Dale Stewart: Not me, because I’ll fall and crack my skull open on the floor.
SM: Yeah, Dale left a piece of his face behind in Oklahoma. Dale suffers for his art actually, but no, we just went in and jammed. We saw how it went and within a week we had written four songs that are on the album now and it was really cool. It was quick and cohesive and creative. Most of all, it was fun to do. We don’t really have a process to write, most of it is just — when we finish touring, we all go home and we take some time to decompress and then I start working, I get bored. I start writing music and just start messing around with ideas and then when I have a good collection of stuff I start sending it out. Then we start thinking about whether it’s time to start talking about recording or not.
This time the process took about 10 months from January or February of last year until I guess December. We were in the studio in January and we finished the album in about 15/16 days. It was a pretty quick painless process.
