Sevendust To Hit Aussie Roads In April 2019 Off The Back Of 'All I See Is War' Album

To celebrate the release of their 12th studio album 'All I See Is War', US alternative metallers Sevendust are hitting Australian roads next year April. Kicking off at The Tivoli Theatre in Brisbane, the iconic band will head their way to Metro Theatre in Sydney, The Forum in Melbourne and The Gov in Adelaide before wrapping up at Perth's Amplifier Capitol. The AU dates will follow the band's only New Zealand show happening at Auckland's Powerstation.

Hysteria Mag said that 'All I See Is War' is "…heavy, angry yet vulnerable…the reasons why Sevendust continue to resonate with an ever-widening audience." Guitarist for the band, Clint Lowery, says of their extremely dedicated fanbase: "We take pride in the connection we have. We've always been a people's band. We're typical guys who just happen to make a career on stage. With this relationship to the fans, we realize how much we need each other, so we push ourselves to deliver. We don't stop. We keep moving."

Sevendust first came together in 1994 with such familial tie that radiated toward their audiences. Up to this day, their connection with fans only grows stronger. For their 12th full-length and first release for Rise Records, the quintet—Lajon Witherspoon (lead vocals), Clint Lowery (lead guitar, backing vocals), John Connolly (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Vince Hornsby (bass), and Morgan Rose (drums)—did the best thing they could possibly do to combat all of the division in the streets and on social media; they went and made a Sevendust record—just bigger, ballsier, and bolder than before—and they couldn't be more excited to bring it to Australia and New Zealand.

A trifecta of now-classic gold albums—'Sevendust' (1997), 'Home' (1999), and 'Animosity' (2001)—ignited their journey. Known as an equally intense and unforgettable live force, they've consistently packed houses around the world and powdered stages everywhere from Rock on the Range and Woodstock to OZZfest and Shiprocked! 2015's Kill The Flaw represented a high watermark. Bowing at #13 on the Billboard Top 200, it scored their highest debut on the respective chart since 2010 and marked their fifth consecutive Top 10 on the Top Rock Albums Chart and third straight Top 3 on the Hard Rock Albums Chart. Most impressively, the lead single 'Thank You' received a nomination at the 2016 GRAMMY® Awards for the 'Best Metal Performance' category—a career first for the band. 'All I See Is War' represents yet another new beginning and new point of connection for fans.
