The Big Kahuna Hard Music, News

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 today’s Billboard Top 200, the highest debut of the bands’ storied 8 studio album, 15 year career. A trimphant 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.

“This is the album Sevendust fans have been waiting for since Seasons. It takes the heavy elements of Animosity and the melodic elements of Seasons, puts them together, and then kicks them both up about 20 notches. It is really that amazing.” (Cottonheaded Ninnymuggins on iTunes)
