Hard rockers Seether and Papa Roach have just announced that they’ll be hitting the road together. The guys will kick things at Myrtle Beach’s House of Blues on January 9. They’ll then play shows in Orlando and Atlanta, before taking the stage at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia on January 13. After that, it’s a series of shows through the Northeast, including Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, New Jersey, Boston and New York City. They’ll play the Filmore in Detroit on January 23 and then head on to shows in Milwaukee, Chicago, Kansas City, and Iowa. After a couple shows in Texas, they’ll play the Cotillion in Wichita on February 2, followed by shows in Denver, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The two bands will close out the joint tour, fittingly enough, at the Joint in Las Vegas on February 7.
Hailing from South Africa and originally named Saron Gas, Seether first found success with their 2002 major label debut album Disclaimer, followed by their big mainstream breakthrough Disclaimer II in 2004, which went on to certified platinum status (although the most successful singles from Disclaimer still remain some of the band’s best-known songs). They’ve since released four additional albums. Papa Roach, meanwhile, is originally from California and became a mainstream megahit with their 2000 major label debut Infest, which would reach triple-platinum certification. Since then, they’ve released eight albums (including a live albums and “best of” compilation), one of which was certified platinum and another gold.
