Welcome back to The Rock Show, where it’s all about the music!
Seether’s new album, Holding On to Strings Better Left to Fray, was released yesterday. I listened to a few clips of some of the songs on the album – it’s definitely not as heavy as the Seether of the past. I get the feeling that this album will be a bit polarizing – it’s definitely different from their last three albums, which I’m sure some will appreciate and others will dislike. I like what I’ve heard so far, though, and I’ll probably wind up getting this album sometime in the near future. I passed on their last album – maybe it’s time to re-evaluate that decision. We’ll see. Either way, definitely look into it.
Well, the Foo Fighters finally made a tour announcement for September. Too bad they’re not playing anywhere near here. I think this is really just one leg of the tour, and I’m sure we’ll see more dates in the near future, considering they’re missing virtually every major city in the country. They did start their first run of tour dates a few days ago in Tulsa, OK, and after taking a peek at the setlist, I’d say we’re in for a treat if they don’t change it up much. Great song selection – see for yourself.
Incubus has a few tour dates out there, too, but nothing near us and only one show in the US. I’m sure once the new album drops in July we’ll see some more activity in that department.
