Seether Information Continued
Seether went on a non-stop touring route in hopes of boosting sales and name recognition after Disclaimer was released. Upon completing the tour, the band had planned to go into the studio and record their sophomore release. However, they were instead tapped to support Evanescence on a worldwide tour that postponed their recording plans by almost a year. On this tour, Seether reworked the acoustic ballad "Broken" into an electric ballad and had Amy Lee of Evanescence share vocal duties with lead singer Shaun Morgan during live performances. Inspired by the positive reaction the duet got on the road and perhaps fueled by a budding romance between Lee and Morgan, the band headed into the studio and quickly recorded an alternate version of "Broken" with Lee on vocals. The song, along with a new song titled "Sold Me", was featured on the soundtrack for the 2004 film The Punisher and was massively successful, bringing Seether fame in the US, the UK and Australia in particular. Later in 2004, in an attempt to calm fans who were demanding a second album, the band released Disclaimer II, an alternate version of the original album with many of the songs remixed or re-recorded as well as eight extra tracks, two of which were the tracks off The Punisher soundtrack.
