Sevendust To Tour With Saliva, Tour Dates Forthcoming

According to The Pulse of Radio, SEVENDUST will hit the road this spring with SALIVA. Dates and venues for the trek will be announced in the weeks ahead. SALIVA is currently in the midst of a trek with DROWNING POOL, while SEVENDUST has yet to announce any tour dates on its own. SEVENDUST recently pulled out of its participation in this summer's inaugural Rockstar Energy Mayhem Tour, indicating in a statement that it canceled its involvement "due to changes in (the group's) touring schedule." The Rockstar Energy Mayhem Tour, featuring headliners DISTURBED and SLIPKNOT, is scheduled to kick off on July 9 in Seattle and will hit 30 North American cities.

SEVENDUST will release its new album, "Chapter VII: Hope & Sorrow", on April 1. The first single is called "Prodigal Son", while the disc features guest appearances from Chris Daughtry and members of ALTER BRIDGE.

This should be a great tour. I absolutely love Sevendust. Saliva is pretty good. I loved their first cd and they went a little more softer with Back Into Your System, Survival of The Sickest, and Blood Stained Love Story was decent. But Sevendust will be amazing as usual. This does make up for them stepping off the mayhem tour.

I would have preferred they stay on the Mayhem tour. Not a Saliva fan, but I guess they can play a longer set this way.

GAY!
Would've much rather seen Sevendust with Machine Head, Five Finger Death Punch, and The Red Chord. If Sevendust headlines I might go, if Saliva does, forget it.

I completely agree with Brian. If Sevendust headlines, I will for sure go, if Saliva headlines, I may leave during or before their set.

Ick....Saliva leave a bad taste in my mouth.....That was almost not intentional.

Post-nu-metal(if there is such a thing) drek. Sevendust however, took a few elements from nu-metal mixed it with heavy rock and groove metal and 80% of the time the boat floats.

Now Playing: Dark Tranquility - "The Endless Feed"

I'm looking foward to this CD, I really enjoy Sevendust. It doesn't make a difference to me that they dropped off the Mayhem Tour, I've seen them three times. I'll see them again, if they come to Chicago and I can make it out I will. But I enjoy Daughtry and Alter Bridge. Yes I know, both bands are very mainstream but I don't care. I like them. And I agree with other people on here, it would be a lot better of a show if Saliva DID NOT headline the show. Sevendust puts on a great show and they shouldn't be opening for Saliva, they're pretty boring live in my opinion.

I'm very excited for Sevendust's new cd. Alpha was great. I've seen Sevendust 4 or 5 times and have chilled with them twice. Very nice, touchy-feely dudes.

Why do all these bands have to release albums that start with the words Chapter ______. You're making a CD, not writing a book, you fxcking non-creative douchebags. It's not like the album's going to be anything that surpasses mediocre. Sevendust is a perpetual crap machine that has long overstayed it's welcome. I can't wait until they break up. Remember Spineshank? Sevendust does.

I saw them four or five times while they were touring for their first album. They played the same club in my city five times in three years before Home came out. I met them, too. I didn't really have a desire to hang with them, but I did wait with a bunch of other people in the cold for another hour and a half afterwards just so we could get Clint Lowery's autograph. He was smashed and could barely stand up. I used to have so many Sevendust guitar and bass picks that I used to use them for myself when I ran out. What a fag of a band now, though.

bah

Sevendust aren't revolutionary. They aren't reinventing the wheel or charting new territory but when I want catchy quasi-metal they're one of the bands I turn to.

If I need metal I'll put in Unlord or Hate Eternal (new one is awesome for anyone who cares).

Sevendust had a good thing going up to "Next" which was a slight let down and "Alpha" had some energy but felt directionless and was decidely uncatchy, which in the context of Sevendust, matters.

Now Playing: Insomnium - "Mortal Share"

Brandedcfh420, no I'm not gay, are you? I mean, that's a pretty strong reaction towards a comment made online. Anyway, no Sevendust aren't "Revolutionary" but if that's what I based my opinion on, I'd be disgusted with approximately 95% of today's music. I know that's not what you said Remember. I'm just saying my view on that way of looking at things. Although, when Sevendust was first being played on my area's rock station they were a lot heavier than most of the other bands. Granted it's a rock station so it doesn't take much to beat out a generic rock band but that seems pretty monumental. Why is it necessarily that when a band gets a song on the radio it's considered selling out? Why can't it be progression?

Don't care if a band is unique, revolutionary, or technical. If it's good it's good. People get too caught up in what's mainstream and what's underground, no pun intended.
I like Dark Tranquility, Susperia,.....Chevelle, Nonpoint. None are all that innovative.
I personally think "Alpha" is the best album they've done start to finish. I love a handful of songs on every album..."Seasons" being my least favorite.

First off, not very many bands today IF ANY are "revolutionary" or re-inventing the wheel so get over it! EVERTHING has been done before...now bands just come up with ways to either re-do it or do it better. So stop arguing over this cuz nothing is being 'reinvented' by ANY band today. And the best point of this blog is.........."Whats good is good" and everyone of us has our own OPINION about whats good. So stop arguing and b****ing and get off your computer for a second and why dont YOU try and go make a better album than SEVENDUST or "revelutionize" music.

Now to answer ALOT of your questions...........SEVENDUST is headlining, then Saliva, I heard a band from Dallas, Tx. called Neverset, and one more opening band I do believe.

Thanks

Dave

f*** yeah my 2 fav bands together! this will kick ass. and to all yall who hate on saliva, see these guys live, the coolest thing about em is they always stay after shows and meet their fans or go to a nearby club and party all night long w/em. more bands should appreciate their fans like these 2 bands do. cuz without the fans, cds dont sell and there is no band.

I think you missed my point. Read the post before mine.....I'm saying "bah" to Crawford.

I''ve been a Sevendust fan since '98, they aren't especially metal, they aren't particularly innovative but I do enjoy them--their first four albums more than the last two. I'm hoping for something decent but I'm not holding my breath.

What kills me is when someone actually believes there isn't anything original out there. You just aren't looking hard enough.

Now Playing: Hella - "Friends Don't Let Friends Win"

I'm not looking forward to the new album. I've heard 4 songs and I'm extremely disappointed.
People who like "Animosity"...the whole thing, not just the first 4 tracks (like me) or "Seasons" will dig this album. Still think the Debut, "Home" and "Alpha" are the best. Seen them play live like 9 times, always good, so I'll probly check em out, just not with Saliva.
