Seether singer/guitarist Shaun Morgan tells Alan Sculley of Cincinnati CityBeat that after the band finished a showcase gig that they hoped would lead to a contract with Wind-Up Records, he was anything but optimistic. “We went in there and I think we all felt we had (stunk) it up because we hadn’t played as well as we could have because we were so nervous,” Morgan recalls. “We were packing up, and I was thinking ‘Well it was a nice trip to New York. Hopefully we’ll do it again some day.’ And they sat us down and said ‘We’d like to welcome you to Wind-Up.’ I started crying because it was one of those moments I’d been waiting for my whole life, since I was 5 years old or whatever.”
