In a new interview, Seether says their latest album "Holding On To Strings Better Left To Fray" is all about knowing (or not knowing) when it's best to say goodbye.

Seether's new album has already spawned the massive singles "Country Song" and "Tonight" but what the hell does it all mean? Shaun and the rest of the guys sat down with Artist Direct recently to talk about the central theme behind "Holding on to Strings Better Left To Fray". Shaun Morgan explained:

"I think the whole concept of just letting things go. Letting relationships that are effecting your life negatively just saying you know what? This is not working out.' Friends, girlfriends, family members, whatever it is. You get to a point where you say okay This is obviously not conducive for either of us to be in this relationship, so why are we still battling through this?' It's inane to sit there and go things are gonna get better but they're not gonna get betterand then you find yourself years later going this thing was doomed from the startSo much wasted energy goes into something that's ultimately doomed so why even invest the time when you could invest in something that's really positive?"

Thanks for the report to

    Ebay dude. thats how I got hold of it =) its totally worth it
    Fade out finally motivated me to say goodbye to my now ex GF the day I heard that song. She was dragging me down, and I couldn't take it any more, literally. For that, I thank Seether. I also thank them for signing my copy of the CD.
    Physical copies are not available in the UK? I live in Portugal and I have a physical copy...
    Still so gutted that the first time they're coming back to the UK since '08(I believe) yet again they're a support band! I love 3 Doors Down and all, but Seether put on a far far better show >.< And I ordered my deluxe edition of the album from America after hearing Pass Slowly...I get why they bitch about their record company so much now, their presence is practically non-existant over here!
