FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 5th, 2021 – Multi-platinum hard rock band SEETHER is the newest addition to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s popular Right Here Right Now exhibit. Right Here Right Now focuses on the evolution of rock & roll and its impact on the current generation of artists by taking visitors on an intimate journey into the stories of chart-topping acts. Utilizing personal artifacts, thought-provoking text panels and interactive displays, Right Here Right Now helps fans discover how these contemporary artists have influenced the new millennium. SEETHER is included in the space alongside luminaries such as Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, The Alabama Shakes, Taylor Swift, The Lumineers, Kacey Musgraves, The Weeknd, among others.
SEETHER’s new display, featuring carefully curated items spanning the band’s illustrious 20-year career includes Shaun Morgan’s signature green acoustic guitar, his Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces era red and black sweater, hand-written lyric sheets for SEETHER hits “Broken” and “Dangerous” and a set list from 2005’s Karma and Effect tour (typed with handwritten notes.)

SEETHER front man Shaun Morgan on what joining Right Here Right Now means to the band: “Growing up on a pig farm in South Africa I had many dreams of being a “rockstar” in America, something that was deemed impossible at the time, I clung to the dream even more tightly with every comment from every naysayer and after many years, shows and numerous different bands the impossible became a reality in 2000. It is such an incredible honor to be recognized by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and to be included in an exhibit amongst so many incredibly talented musicians, many of whom inspired me as a young boy. I feel so humbled and grateful for this opportunity that it is difficult to express. This is a huge milestone for SEETHER and is by far one of the most important highlights of our career.”
SEETHER further cemented their place as one of hard rock’s most important and enduring bands with their latest album Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum (“If You Want Peace, Prepare For War”) which debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Hard Rock chart upon its release last fall. The album’s lead track “Dangerous” topped rock radio at #1 for three consecutive weeks, the band’s 16th #1 hit. Most recently, SEETHER shared the menacing video for the album’s second single “Bruised and Bloodied.” Watch it HERE.
n celebration of the band’s 20-year anniversary, SEETHER also recently issued three of their classic albums – Disclaimer II, Karma and Effect, and Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces – on vinyl and exclusive color variants for the very first time via Craft Recordings. Released early in the band’s remarkable run, these three albums exemplify the distinctive musicianship and song-craft for which SEETHER are best known and helped solidify them as one of the most successful hard rock bands in the world.

Since forming in Pretoria, South Africa in 1999, SEETHER has amassed a global fan base that has grown organically with the quartet’s sense of purpose and commitment spreading outwards, offering their fans around the world camaraderie, comfort and a sense of personal power. While others of their ilk faded away, SEETHER maintains a strong sense of self, ignoring trends and critics in favor of a consummate devotion to their craft. Their impressive sales and chart history includes three platinum and two gold albums, 16 #1 singles (including 2017’s “Let You Down,” 2014’s “Words as Weapons,” and 2011’s “Tonight”); 20 Top 5 multi-format hits, with US singles sales topping 17 million and over 1.5 billion streams world-wide across all platforms.
They are also creators of the Rise Above Fest, founded in 2012 to raise awareness for suicide prevention and mental illness. Past headliners of the annual gathering include Slash, Godsmack, Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach & many more. Since conception, the Rise Above Fest has turned into a broader movement, expanding its presence at additional music festivals around the globe. All SEETHER shows donate $1 of ticket sales to benefit the SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices Of Education) organization.
