Seether has released “Stoke the Fire,” the second track from its new, Poison the Parish, scheduled for a May 12 release via vocalist/guitarist Shaun Morgan’s new imprint, Canine Riot Records.

“Stoke the Fire” is available as an instant download for fans who pre-order the full album; find it here. Previewing the new album, Revolver stated, “In a time when it’s easy to tune out all the monotonous rock, Seether’s Poison the Parish proves the South African outfit still grooves, crushes and rocks harder than all.” Alternative Press said Poison the Parish is “a return to the darker and heavier style of music that Seether built their name upon.”

“Stoke the Fire” follows the new album’s lead single and video, “Let You Down,” which was released in February and is already top 10 at both Mainstream and Active Rock radio. (more…)

I can’t find one thing about Seether that countless other bands don’t offer. Its dark, post-grunge sound has been done to death over the past decade or so. Yet there is something about this trio, originally from South Africa, that just works for me. I’m not an elitist.
