The band's first single "Fine Again" is now Top 20 at all Rock Radio formats, and showing steady growth in a very busy time of year.
Seether returns from their European promo tour this week and is gearing up for the Road Warrior life - they'll be playing a series of mainly club shows now through the end of the year.

12 Stones will remain on the Creed tour through the end of the year.

An important new project for Wind-Up this fall is the debut album from Stereo Fuse, which hits stores November 5th.
The band came to the label after their first single "Everything," was already a certified HIT on several rock and pop radio stations through the South. One radio programmer (Brian Krysz) calls it "Far and away the most requested song of the year on the Party. A true no-brainer!!!!!!"
We've recently serviced both the single and video for "Everything," so dig them out of your pile and check out this cool new band!
