Atlanta’s Sevendust is a metal band that perfectly melds thrash, classic metal, southern rock and soul together into a beautifully balanced yet brutally heavy modern metal mix. The quintet of Morgan Rose (drums), Vince Hornsby (bass), guitarists John Connolly and Clint Lowery (who rejoined the band in 2008) and frontman Lajon Witherspoon, released their ninth studio album, "Black Out The Sun," in 2013. The album hit the Billboard 200 charts at No. 18 and the Top Hard Music Albums Chart at No. 1. Hailed as a return to where it all began, "Black Out The Sun" has been compared to "Animosity" (2001), one of their most popular albums and the third studio album they released after forming in 1994. It also produced Sevendust’s Top Ten single, "Decay," which continues to grace playlists across the globe.
Boasting driving drums, smooth yet deep bass, heavy and melodic guitars and sweeping vocal melodies, Sevendust is possibly best known for their brutally energetic live performances. Fan favorite, Lajon Witherspoon, captures the crowd's attention early and never let’s go. It is evident from his huge smile that he loves what he is doing, and fans leave Sevendust concerts feeling loved by the band. The diversity and genuine talent of Sevendust shines through their live performances, which often include acoustic versions of their songs. However, the intensity never wanes, and the pits are as aggressive as any that bands like Lamb of God or Hatebreed can produce. Sevendust fans will always vie for tickets whenever Sevendust comes to their city.
After finishing headlining the From Death to Destiny Tour, with Asking Alexandria, All That Remains, For Today and Emmure, Sevendust plan to begin recording their first studio acoustic album. Fans and critics alike clearly see that Sevendust is a band that has it all and never disappoints.
