A few years have passed since Native Noise ended its run on UCT Radio, since then Ive been searching for the right way to relaunch the brand and what it stands for. Peter Lacey at Musketeer Records was always a huge supporter of the show and his new concept for the Native Noise Collections is the perfect way to bring it back. The ethos of Native Noise was thinking globally by supporting locally, and no rock band represents the global domination of South African music better than Seether. I remember playing the hell out of 'Fragile' as a campus radio DJ and spilling my beer in the mosh pit at early Saron Gas shows, so it is a huge honour to be involved with this release - as an avid supporter of SA music and a Seether fan. It has been inspiring to watch Seether's fanbase grow over the years, a reminder that the South African public has the power to create local rock stars. The success of 'Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces' thrust Seether into a new league, locally and abroad, so this collection is a treasure trove of rarities as the band continues to grow and make us proud. -

Native Noise Collections Vol. 1 The Seether Sessions is a look back on the career to date of South Africas most successful rock band Seether.
Disk one of the release features Shaun, Dale and the band talking about the genesis of the band all the way through to the present day including the trials and tribulations of being in a successful rock band.
This South Africa only release will capitalize on the success of FBINS and interduce a new legion of fans to the history of the band and their most popular songs to date.
South Africa's most successful rock band returns with their third international studio album. With over 2 million albums sold, Seether has been certified gold thrice with Disclaimer, Disclaimer II and Karma & Effect. Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces was produced by Grammy-nominated Howard Benson (Hoobastank, Motorhead, All American Rejects, My Chemical Romance). The highly anticipated album is set to break new ground for Seether internationally whilst reinforcing their position as the undisputed heavyweights of SA Rock.
With over 2 million albums sold worldwide and more than 43 000 local sales, South African rock giants Seether also performed in front of 98 000 South African concertgoers at the Coca-Cola Colab Massive Mix this March.
One Cold Night is their most accessible album yet; a live acoustic album that provides fans with an intimate experience of the band.
The CD portion of One Cold Night presents an intimate 12 song performance and an alternate mix of the latest single "The Gift". "Broken", the worldwide hit featuring Amy Lee of Evanescence, is presented with the intensity and passion only possible in a live intimate setting. "Remedy", voted best song of 2005 (above Green Day's Boulevard of Broken Dreams) by US radio giants The Buzz, is given an acoustic makeover. "Tied My Hands", a rare gem from the band's local debut as Saron Gas, is a treat for fans of the Fragile album (currently exclusive to South Africa). "Immortality", a rare Pearl Jam song, is played with that distinct Seether edge.
The DVD portion presents the band as only dedicated fans will know them. The full acoustic performance is personal and heartfelt. After the show WMMR presenter Pierre Robert conducts an hour-long interview with the band. The band discusses life on the road, inspiration, musical politics and the pleasure of returning to play for South African audiences. Other bonus features include the music video and making of "The Gift" as well as photos from the show.
