SEETHER rocked the music world in June announcing their highly anticipated return this summer with new album Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum (“If You Want Peace, Prepare For War”) due August 28th, 2020 via Fantasy Records. Today, the quartet releases a brand-new track from the upcoming record — their first new album in three years — with the bold rager, “Bruised and Bloodied.”
Watch the visualizer for “Bruised and Bloodied” HERE.
“Bruised and Bloodied” is a strong representation of the dynamic push-pull on Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum with front man Shaun Morgan bringing his intimate singer-songwriter sensibility to the band’s heavy rock grooves.
“’Bruised and Bloodied’ is a mix of self-deprecation and rage, neatly wrapped up in a sexy groove with a big shiny pop bow on top,” says Morgan. “Essentially, it is a combination of shame and sadness delivered in a cheerful way, as I’ve always enjoyed juxtaposing jaded lyrics with a jubilant melody.”
Drawing on influences including the dark and raw honesty of grunge’s epic guitar attack and the South African underground punk and metal that Morgan (and bandmate Dale Stewart) grew up on, SEETHER’s sonic brew is unmistakable and timeless.
The album’s lead single, “Dangerous” is another standout that has had an impressive impact at rock radio since being released June 24th. Already Top 10 at Active Rock radio in just three weeks, “Dangerous” has been the #1 most increased track at the format every week since its release.
