The third episode in Seether’s web series ‘Countdown to ‘Breakdown” features the rock group being interviewed about special moments from their touring in the past year, with Shaun Morgan talking about meeting a girl born without any eyes. “She definitely gave me a renewed appreciation for this at a time when I was feeling – you get to a point when we’ve been at it for more than a year and all you really want to do is go home. Then you meet someone like that and she makes it seem cool. It is an awesome job and it is a cool thing we do. It gives you the energy to carry on until December when we get done and you actually finally get to go home.” Watch the webisode below.

Seether Live In LA But Aren’t Into The Hollywood Scene

Seether bassist Dale Stewart tells Australia’s Beat magazine that while the South African rocker’s are now based in Los Angeles, they aren’t buying into the area’s lifestyle. “LA is a crazy place,” Stewart said. “Anything can happen. You name it. Nothing can surprise you. We don’t fit in there very much because we’re not into that whole scene. I don’t want to generalize because I have some great friends in LA and it has many great aspects, but a lot of it is really plastic. Everybody is just trying to get something from the next person and no one is sincere. The only reason they befriend you or talk to you is to get something from you or further their career. There’s so much of that, like girls sleeping with guys to get acting jobs. There’s that side to it and I try and stay as far away from that as I can.”
