South African rockers Seether are proving to be juggernauts in the United States as they continue to dominate the radio airwaves. Currently, the band has two singles from their latest Wind-Up Records release, Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray, sitting in the Top 15 on the Active Rock chart and is the only artist to hold that distinction.
The debut single, "Country Song," is hovering at #9 this week after spending 11 weeks in the #1 spot which is the longest reign at #1 for any single this year so far. It is also the most spun Active Rock record of 2011 to date. "Country Song" is the fourth #1 single of the band's career at Active Rock following in the footsteps of "Fake It (Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces)," which was #1 for 13 weeks; "Remedy" (Karma and Effect) which held the top spot for 11 weeks; and "Fine Again (Disclaimer)" which was the group's first ever #1 hit. The follow-up single, "Tonight," is making a run to the top of the chart to pick up where "Country Song" left off. It is #14 with a bullet after only four weeks since its release to radio. Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray was released in May and debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and is the band's highest album premiere to date.
Seether are also gearing up to head out on the road this month. They will be headlining this year's Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival playing alongside Avenged Sevenfold, and Three Days Grace among other acts. The tour kicks off at the end of the month on August 26th in Camden, NJ and wraps up October 16th in Las Vegas, NV. So you can get your Seether on in the live arena.
