Shaun Morgan from Seether has made the decision to check himself into rehab. He starts a rehab program on Monday, so the band has decided to cancel all tour dates and public appearances until further notice.
Here's part of the statement from Seether's official website:
Seether front man Shaun Morgan has admitted to himself and those close to him that he needs help and is making the proactive move to seek it. Following scheduled appearances this week, all future plans have been placed on hold until further notice as Morgan plans to begin his recovery process on Monday, July 31st. Morgan, who has established himself as one of the leading singers in rock over the past five years, has made a personal choice to attack what he sees as a dependence on a combination of substances. The band had planned to tour in August with Staind behind their recently released live acoustic album One Cold Night. The opportunity to perform this repertoire in an acoustic setting is something the band hopes to do at some point in the future. Morgan commented, “I’m deeply sorry that this news comes right before a planned tour, especially one that I was so excited about, and I hope that everyone understands. I need help with addictions that I can’t kick on my own. These things are making me sick, and could potentially harm me permanently, so I need to take care of them as soon as possible. I hope the tour goes well, and we hope to be on the road again soon. Thank you again for your understanding and support.”
