New Sevendust Song Clip Available Online

A 38-second audio sample of the new SEVENDUST single, entitled "Ugly", has been posted online at this location (Real Media).

"Ugly" is the first single off SEVENDUST's upcoming fifth album, "Next", due on October 11 via 7Bros./WineDark Records. The song, which is scheduled to go for radio adds on August 8, was described by drummer Morgan Rose in a recent MTV.com interview as a mixed bag with a "huge chorus, broken-down verses and really heavy bridges."

"Next" marks the recording debut with the band of new guitarist Sonny Mayo (ex-AMEN/SNOT). Mayo joined SEVENDUST earlier this year as the replacement for Clint Lowery, who left the group mid-tour in December, citing "personal issues." Lowery has since become a full-time member of DARK NEW DAY, the new "supergroup" also featuring Brett Hestla (ex-CREED, VIRGOS MERLOT) on vocals, Will Hunt (ex-SKRAPE, TOMMY LEE) on drums, Clint's brother Corey Lowery (ex-STEREOMUD, STUCK MOJO) on bass, and Troy McLawhorn (ex-DOUBLE DRIVE) on guitar.

"Next" is the follow-up to "Seasons", which sold a respectable 68,000 copies in its first week of release back in October 2003 to land at position No. 14 on The Billboard 200.

WineDark Records is distributed in the U.S. by Fontana Distribution, a division of Universal Music and Video Distribution (UMVD). SEVENDUST's last four albums were issued through TVT Records.

Sevendust Talk About New Album

SEVENDUST drummer Morgan Rose recently spoke to MTV.com about the recording process for the group's new album, "Next". SEVENDUST's fifth disc, "Next" is the band's first release for the Universal-affiliated WineDark Records after a lengthy stint with TVT Records.

Regarding the songwriting process for the new CD, Rose said, "There was no one really to tell us what to do — and over the past few records, there had been a lot of opinions from a lot of people on a lot of different aspects of the records. We pretty much had the reins to do what we wanted on this record, so we really were able to not worry about any outside influences. I don't want to sound too cliché, but we went back to our roots, because we were able to do some stuff that hadn't been accepted very readily over the last few records.

"Over the last few records, the powers that be were telling us that we didn't need to be doing what we were doing," Rose explained. "We were told, 'You need to be listening to the WHITE STRIPES and the STROKES' — we were told, point blank, to go buy WHITE STRIPES and STROKES records to see what they sound like. I almost fell out of my chair when I heard that. It was like, 'Houston, there's a major f---ing problem here.' "

Rose decribes the new album, due on October 11, as "definitely a hybrid of heavy stuff and melodic stuff, but we don't leave much room for interpretation. It's a straightforward record."

"You know, I think our music goes along with CHEVELLE's style as well, and I think their fans have been really supportive and, you know, our fans from the previous bands have been very cool and have come up to the shows, and I think it's a perfect blend."

DARK NEW DAY's debut album, "Twelve Year Silence", hits record stores on June 14. The first single from the disc is called "Brother".

Sevendust's Morgan Rose Gives Update

Sevendust drummer Morgan Rose sent out the following update in the group's latest newsletter: "It's been a while since I've talked to everyone. Things are incredible for us right now and I hope everything is great with y'all as well. As you know [new guitarist] Sonny [Mayo, ex-Snot/Amen] is in our family and actually has been a brother to us for many years. We've been in Orlando for a little over a month bonding and it's been amazing.

"Sonny has brought so much to the table musically as well as spiritually. I can't describe how happy we all are. We will be hitting the road in early April and can't wait to see all of you. There is so much more to talk about, but we'll leave that to another time. It will be in the near future though, so just be a liiiiitle patient.

"We love you guys and can't tell you how thankful we are to have you as family to all of us. Looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks."

X-Fest 8, Huntington, WV Report

My assignment was simple; infiltrate X-Fest for an interview with Bobaflex via backstage passes provided by the tour manager. I was prepared for this assignment, questions written in an organized fashion, digital voice recorder fully charged and tested, along with the digital camera for the after interview photos of the band and their live show. Plans to meet the tour manager at the gate were confirmed days earlier, along with rules on photographing, recording and time limitations.

About 12:35 on Saturday, October second, we parked my truck in the post office parking lot, two blocks from the front gates to Harris Riverfront Park. The park sits on the north end of downtown Huntington, West Virginia, directly on the Ohio River. The second was a cool day, grey and gloomy from the full cloud cover. The air was wet and the ground muddied from showers before sunrise. As long as the rain held, it was excellent weather to be at a crowded all day rock concert, surrounded by hundreds of tattooed people wearing black. More...
