SEVENDUST Is ‘Figuring Out Dates’ For New Album Writing Sessions

Friday, 08 February 2019
Lajon Witherspoon has told Mick Stingley of Billboard that SEVENDUST is "figuring out dates" when he and his bandmates can begin the writing process for the follow-up to last year's "All I See Is War" album. According to the singer, SEVENDUST wrote over 50 songs for "All I See Is War" before entering the studio with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (ALTER BRIDGE, TREMONTI, SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS). "We had so much time off, which was great — we got to go home and be fathers and husbands, and go to the daddy/daughter dances — but when you're away from it for a little bit, the creative juices are just flowing." The band picked 12 songs for the album, but it recorded "a few more than 12. We still have a lot of stuff in the pocket." SEVENDUST guitarist Clint Lowery recently told Audio Ink Radio that the band didn't "want to wait a long time" before returning to the studio. "We'll probably end up recording a new record at the end of this year," he said. "We already have ideas kind of floating around for it." "All I See Is War" was released in May 2018. It marked the group's first album for Rise Records, the Oregon-based metal and hard rock label which was purchased by BMG in 2015. So far, SEVENDUST has released four singles and videos from "All I See Is War": "Dirty", "Not Original", "Medicated" and "Risen". "The label has been so great," Witherspoon told Billboard. "They've really been behind the band. We haven't done videos in so long I forgot they still did them. It's been fun for us to be involved and get so many done for this album. It's exciting."
