Seether's 'Poison The Parish' World Tour has been significantly expanded and now includes US headline shows and major festival appearances throughout the spring and summer and now an extensive European headlining run in September and October. The extensive tour come in support of 'Poison The Parish', their recently announced seventh studio album, set for release via Spinefarm/Canine Riot Records on May 12th 2017.

Shaun Morgan - vocals/guitar, Dale Stewart - bass/vocals, and John Humphrey - drums will be joined by guitarist Clint Lowery of Sevendust who will augment the band's line-up throughout the upcoming trek, adding his signature axe-work to Seether's new songs and deep repertoire. Shaun Morgan told us:

"Playing Europe has always been one of our favourite highlights of every tour. The fans are rabid and know the deepest tracks which means we get to play songs we often gloss over in the US. There's an intensity and passion that we feed off of and we often allow ourselves to play with more freedom and abandon. My ultimate goal on this tour is achieve my dream of getting a back alley vasectomy with a coat hanger."

Recorded at Blackbird Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, 'Poison The Parish' marks the first album produced in its entirety by frontman Shaun Morgan and is also the first release on Canine Riot Records, Morgan’s new label imprint. The album's epic lead single. Let You Down', premiered last month and you can see the video right here.

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
