SEETHER To Join 3 Doors Down As Special Guests On Select
Tour Dates This Summer in addition to Festival and Radio Shows;
SEETHER announced the release of Wasteland – The Purgatory EP available digitally and on CD July 30th, 2021, and on vinyl October 22nd, 2021, via Fantasy Records. The 5-track set includes the fan favorite, “Wasteland,” from the band’s most recent album, and features three never-before-heard songs, and an alternate/stripped down version of “Wasteland,” which is available today. Watch the accompanying music video HERE. Written and produced by Shaun Morgan, engineered by the band’s newest member Corey Lowery, and mixed by Matt Hyde, Wasteland – The Purgatory EP, follows the August 2020 release of SEETHER’s eighth album, the acclaimed, Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum (“If You Want Peace, Prepare For War.”) The first two singles from the album both hit #1 on the Active Rock and Rock charts: the anthemic, “Dangerous,” and hard-hitting “Bruised and Bloodied.”
Wasteland – The Purgatory EP special vinyl edition will be released on 45rpm 12″ vinyl on October 22nd, 2021. The band’s online store will have a 500-unit super limited-edition custom Smoke and Translucent Red split color vinyl and a limited-edition Custom Clear with Smoky White Swirls color vinyl, while record stores will carry Custom Mixed Translucent Red with Smoky Black Swirls color vinyl.

SEETHER front man Shaun Morgan on this new release: “We are really excited to release The Purgatory EP as a companion to our latest single, “Wasteland.” I’m especially proud of how the alternate version of the track turned out and really happy that people will finally hear it!”
Wasteland – The Purgatory EP demonstrates SEETHER’s dynamism and creative versatility. Seething with dark muscularity, the urgent “What Would You Do?” is a beautiful and cathartic baptism-by-fire that never lets up. With Pixies’ undertones and Beatle accents, “Will It Ever End?” is a startling, pandemic appropriate head trip that, like the voice in your head, goes to places unforeseen and unforgiven. “Feast or Famine” sounds like the unholy progeny of AC/DC and Ozzy-era Sabbath. The EP is bookended by two versions of “Wasteland,” the original album version and a stripped-down alternate version that features touches of piano and cello, but still retains the original’s tormented drive. This latest release finds SEETHER, one of hard rock’s most enduring and prolific bands, at the very top of their very productive game.
Earlier this month, SEETHER announced they will join 3 Doors Down on the band’s The Better Life 20th Anniversary Tour as special guests on select dates throughout the summer. These shows kick off on July 17th, 2021, in Huber Heights, OH and will see the bands play amphitheaters in major markets across the U.S. Tickets and VIP packages are on sale now and full routing is below. Additionally, this fall will see SEETHER play several festivals including Louder Than Life 2021 in Louisville, KY and the sold-out Aftershock Festival 2021 in Sacramento, CA.

Their impressive sales and chart history includes three platinum and two gold albums, 17 #1 singles, 21 Top 5 multi-format hits, single sales topping 17 million and over 2 billion streams world-wide across all platforms. SEETHER is Billboard’s #8 All-Time Mainstream Rock Artist, which covers the 40-year history of the chart’s existence. Their latest LP, the acclaimed, Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum (If You Want Peace, Prepare For War) was released last summer via Fantasy Records. A primal mix of euphoria and misery, the new album ranks among the strongest material of SEETHER’s illustrious career and includes the recent #1 singles “Dangerous,” “Bruised and Bloodied,” and the soon to be released “Wasteland.”
