Tomorrow marks the release of melodic hard rock band Sevendust’s ninth studio album Black Out The Sun, which is the followup to 2010’s Cold Day Memory. In anticipation of this release, we got the opportunity to do a one-on-one chat with singer Lajon Witherspoon to discuss the album, touring with Coal Chamber, Lacuna Coil, and Candlelight Red, the 1999 show with Metallica in Detroit, and more. We also got to ask if Witherspoon had ever encountered any racism during their career as well as Lajon’s love of horror. You can check it all out below
Sevendust are getting ready to release their 8th studio album titled “Cold Day Memory” on April 20th. The band recorded Cold Day Memory with Grammy nominated producer Johnny K (Disturbed, Staind, 3 Doors Down, Plain White T’s) and it’s their first new album with with the reunited original lineup.
“This record personally has been one of the most difficult, but most rewarding records I’ve ever worked on” explains guitarist Clint Lowery. “I put a lot of pressure on myself to contribute good material to the guys after being gone for last three records and that helped me focus more than I ever had.” Adds Lajon Witherspoon: “I feel this album shows new growth for the band. We’re very happy to have Clint back and are looking forward for everyone hearing the magic that’s made when we’re all together!” READ MORE
