A Day in the Life of…Shaun Morgan of Seether

“I describe us as a rock band above all else,” Shaun Morgan tells me. Last October, his band celebrated their decades-long career with a 20-song compilation album, Vicennial: 2 Decades of Seether. And there’s a lot to celebrate: 16 of the songs achieved #1 chart positions; all 20 were Top 5, multi-format radio hits. Carefully curated by the band, the album tells their story since forming in Pretoria, South Africa in 1999, a story that includes three platinum and two gold albums, 17 #1 singles, 21 Top 5 hits, single sales topping 17 million and over 2 billion streams worldwide across all platforms.

Seether’s Shaun Morgan Hates Social Media

Frontman Shaun Morgan hates social media and says it’s disgusting. During an interview with Loudwire Nights host Toni Gonzalez, Morgan explained why hates social media, saying, “I just had a massive traumatic experience with my 19-year-old daughter. She’s the perfect case study for somebody who grew up for the past five or six years on Instagram, on Facebook, on all of these social media things, and how much of her self-esteem is so deeply embedded in little thumbs up and little likes and things from people she’s never met and probably never will meet.”

Seether’s Shaun Morgan says festival fans who booed Machine Gun Kelly were “doing God’s work”

‘s Shaun Morgan has shared his thoughts on fans booing Machine Gun Kelly at last weekend’s Louder Than Life festival. The rapper turned rocker headlined the Louisville, Kentucky festival last Saturday (September 25), and footage from the metal-leaning event showed that not everyone was happy with his top billing, with some of the crowd booing and showing him the middle finger amidst his ongoing feud with Slipknot’s Corey Taylor.

Shaun Morgan – Louder Than Life Crowd ‘Doing God’s Work’ Booing Machine Gun Kelly

Tensions between Machine Gun Kelly and Slipknot's Corey Taylor escalated after Kelly threw shade at Slipknot during his Riot Fest set, claiming he was glad not to be "a 50-year-old wearing a fucking weird mask." In the time since, Kelly has faced some backlash while playing to harder rock crowds, including receiving audible booing and visible middle fingers from audience members at the recent Louder Than Life festival. That moment earned a response from Seether's Shaun Morgan, who congratulated the audience on their action toward Kelly during the band's set that weekend.
