Seether are a South African, hard rock band from Pretoria. The band have performed under their current name since 2002 but found more global recognition in 2004, with the release of their second album, Disclaimer II, although this was more of a remixing of their debut, with some extra tracks added.
This particular song, ‘Broken’ was a single from the album and features guest vocals from Amy Lee (singer of Evanescence) who was also formerly the girlfriend of lead singer Shaun Morgan.
The band are known for their hard-hitting metal songs but this is a much more stripped-back, epic song of theirs, featuring strings.
The video for the song is also fairly fantastic, seeing the singers wandering through a post-apocalyptic type of setting, which apparently was a real-life trailer park which was a former meth lab, which burnt to the ground…interesting huh?! Ha!
