“What was that move
That they taught in self-defense
You block the killer’s knife
Move with some confidence
The signal when you’re trapped inside a moving car
I wonder if he’ll drive real far”
Seether and Nonpoint descend upon St. Paul, Minn. with Sin City Escape in tow. Doors open at 7 p.m., Thursday, May 21, at The Myth.
These guys have been busy; making stops in New York and Missouri, to name a few of the places on the roster for this year’s tour. The two bands are also playing Rise Against Fest, alongside Godsmack and Papa Roach, in Bangor, Maine on May 6.
Next month, they’ll stop in our neck of the woods for a night.
Local radio station 93X plays host for the occasion and will be dolling out raffle tickets, Tuesday nights from 9 p.m.-12 a.m. at Hoggsbreath, for a chance to earn meet and greet tickets with Seether.
Isolate And Medicate is the title of Seether’s latest release, featuring “Same Damn Life”, a shoulder-bopping little number with a surprisingly high-pitched pre-chorus and catchy hook. They’ve breached the bounds of several genres, remaining relevant by releasing “Country Song” in 2011 when Mumford & Sons was lulling listeners into a trance-like state with fiddles and banjos. I’m still listening to Seether’s 2005 album, Karma and Effect, and man, this band has staying power.
The same goes for Nonpoint. Their song, “What a Day” put them on the map back in 2000 with a strange storyline and a batch of intermittent isolated vocals that made them stand out against angrier bands like Drowning Pool and Static X, but Nonpoint was still rock/rapcore enough to carve out a niche for themselves. I saw them play WJRR’s Earthday Birthday 21 in Orlando, Fla. and they killed it.
Want to see Seether and Nonpoint for yourself? Well, now’s your chance.
Purchase advance tickets for $25 online or get them at the door the day of the show.
