Sevendust confirmed March 26, 2013 as the official release date for their highly anticipated ninth studio album, "Black Out The Sun", via 7Bros. Records. The album's first single "Decay" will hit radios and online retail outlets for download on January 22, 2013.
These Georgia natives will be touring with Lacuna Coil begining February 2, 2013 in Winston-Salem, NC at Ziggy's and concluding February 23, 2013 in Cedar Rapids, IA at the Pepsi Pavillion. More shows are said to be added to the schedule and are expected to be announced in the coming months.
Guitarist for Sevendust John Connolly recently spoke to Revolver magazine describing the new music as having "a darker vibe....but there's still plenty of melody. It fits right in with 'Animosity', 'Alpha' and our other self-titled album. Lots of heavy stuff and some more mellow moody songs as well."
Their other guitarist Clint Lowery who spoke to Guitar World about the new music described it along the same lines as his bandmate. “There’s a dark turn to the whole thing…in a lot of ways, it’s your typical Sevendust record.”
Tickets for this fantastic rocking tour will go on sale Friday, November 30th.
