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.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
