Sevendust Return With Highest Chart Position Ever
April 30, 2010
The fans have spoken! 'Cold Day Memory' is Sevendust's "best album to date" (Brett Ellis on Facebook). "I find it hard for words to describe how unbelievably amazing this album is. Such intense passion and depth." (SupermanNYC on iTunes). "Best 7Dust CD ever" (Trey Lee Cowart on Facebook). "Unf*ckingbelievable" (@Szajdi on Twitter). "Album of the year. I know there are 8 months left in the year, but I don't honestly see anything topping this. Anything." (Cfw828 on Tunelab.com). "Sevendust are back harder than ever!" (jamroc2223 on iTunes).

Not only have the fans raved about it, they actually bought it too and at a higher clip than ever before. 'Cold Day Memory' debuted at #12 on the Billboard Top 200, the highest debut of the bands' storied 8 studio album, 15 year career. A triumphant return for Sevendust's original lineup - Lajon Witherspoon (vocals), Morgan Rose (drums/vocals), Clint Lowery (guitar/vocals), Vince Hornsby (bass/vocals) and John Connolly (guitar/vocals). The limited edition CD/DVD includes 12 tracks along with an hour long behind the scenes DVD highlighting various aspects of the recording process.

With Lowery as a major contributor, Sevendust released four albums that stretched the limits of hard rock and metal, combining elements of thrash, classic metal, southern rock and soul into songs that were both sinfully tuneful and ruthlessly aggressive. Then in 2003, after the release of 'Seasons', the guitarist quit to focus on his other band. Sevendust continued for three more albums, and enjoyed considerable success, but something was clearly missing. So, when the band reunited with Lowery in early 2008, it was like the missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle was finally reinserted and the picture was again complete.

The results are telling. Along with 'Cold Day Memory' being Sevendust's highest charting debut ever, the album's first single, "Unraveling", set a debut milestone as well. It entered the BDS Active Rock radio chart higher than any other Sevendust track. It surpassed 2003's "Enemy," which wound up peaking at #6 and is currently their highest charting song to date. At radio, "Unraveling" is the most well received Sevendust song ever and has the chance to be an absolute crossover monster.

Sevendust will be on the road with Nonpoint, Saving Abel and Day of Fire in April and May and are confirmed for the entire Carnival Of Madness Tour with Shinedown, Chevelle, Puddle Of Mudd and 10 Years this summer. A full list of dates is below.

Biography
HOME TOWN: Atlanta, GA
MEMBERS:
Lajon Witherspoon - Vocals
John Connolly - Guitar
Clint Lowery - Guitar
Vince Hornsby - Bass
Morgan Rose - Drums

Despite it’s unconventional creation, the new record, Cold Day Memory is a cohesive return to form that restores everything Sevendust pioneered and excelled at in the late ‘90s with the writing and playing chops the members have developed since then. In summary, this record is inventive, immediate and infectious.

“We wanted to change the template completely from what we did with our last album Hope and Sorrow, Rose explains. “We were going, ‘Let’s bring back those other elements Clint brought in that made us what we were. So we sort of made a silent agreement that we were going to let Clint run wild. We said we’ll jump in when it’s time, but if you’ve got an idea let’s go with it.”

With Lowery as a major contributor, Sevendust released four albums that stretched the limits of hard rock and metal, combining elements of thrash, classic metal, southern rock and soul into songs that were both sinfully tuneful and ruthlessly aggressive. Then in 2003, after the release of Seasons, the guitarist quit to focus on his other band Dark New Day. Sevendust continued for three more albums, and enjoyed considerable success, but something was clearly missing. So, when the band reunited with Lowery in early 2008, it was like the missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle was finally reinserted and the picture was again complete.

“I just wanted us to do what we do best,” Lowery says. “We have a lot of melody that’s a cool contrast to the heavy music that we play. So, you’ll have a melodic chorus that comes out of nowhere, but we still have aggressive vocals there. And I did a lot with the harmonies, but I also did a lot of the heavy vocal stuff as well. So it was a challenge for me to really dig in and find a voice that was aggressive enough to where it sounded sincere enough to put on the record. We’re a very heavy, but melodic band and I wanted to maintain that.”
