(Photo by: Clay Patrick McBride) It’s looking out to be another year of non-stop touring for the guys in Seether who are hitting the road in support of their latest release, “Holding Onto Strings Better Left To Fray”. Having just finished the Uproar Festival tour and now playing the House of Blues Hollywood as well the 48 Hour Festival in Las Vegas, Seether is out to remind their fans they haven’t lost their intensity one bit.
It was a packed house at the House of Blues on this night when Seether made their “return” to Los Angeles alongside friends and tourmates, Art Of Dying. Televisions displaying random images surrounded the stage as John, Shaun and Dale kicked off their set with Fur Cue. Going on to play crowd favorites such as “Broken”, “Driven Under”, “The Gift” and “Needles”. Everyone in the audience was singing along word for word. David Draiman the frontman of Disturbed, was in attendance this night as well.
Earlier this week I had the chance to speak with Dale and ask a few questions in regards to what Seether has been up to, the reaction to the new album and what the fans can expect as far as their performances and touring goes.
HMTV: You guys are always on the road, this year is no different. Uproar, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. What else do you guys have scheduled?
Dale: “I think after this we head over to Australia and Asia. It’s pretty cool to go to places we’ve never been to.”
HMTV: Holding Onto Strings Better Left To Fray dropped a few months ago, what has the crowd reaction been to the album?
Dale: “It’s been great! The fans seem to like the songs and we’re having a blast playing them for the crowd”.
HMTV: Even though you and sometimes Shaun live in Los Angeles, it seems like you never play out here. The last time I remember you guys playing here was with Flyleaf a few years back at the Wiltern. Are you excited about playing the House of Blues in Hollywood?
Dale: “Yeah we are. We would like to play Los Angeles more often.”
The present and future seems to be as bright as ever for these guys who work their asses off to create and release music for themselves but most importantly their fans. Make sure to catch a Seether show whenever possible, you wont be sorry.
