Seether, a post-grunge/alternative metal band from Pretoria, South Africa, was formed in 1999. Originally named Saron Gas, they changed their name in 2002, coinciding with the release of their second album and major label debut, Disclaimer.
Seether's fifth studio album Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray was the first full Seether album to have Troy McLawhorn as the lead guitarist. However, he departed from the band just before the album's release, to once again become the rhythm guitarist for the band Evanescence. It was released on 17 May 2011, and debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S.
The album finds itself being much different than the band's previous release. Shaun Morgan's screams are rarely found on the new album, and his lyrics reflect different subject matters. The album is described as being "very strong, melodic, and heavy at times", by the band's drummer, John Humphrey.
