Seether has released “Stoke the Fire,” the second track from its new, Poison the Parish, scheduled for a May 12 release via vocalist/guitarist Shaun Morgan’s new imprint, Canine Riot Records.

“Stoke the Fire” is available as an instant download for fans who pre-order the full album; find it here. Previewing the new album, Revolver stated, “In a time when it’s easy to tune out all the monotonous rock, Seether’s Poison the Parish proves the South African outfit still grooves, crushes and rocks harder than all.” Alternative Press said Poison the Parish is “a return to the darker and heavier style of music that Seether built their name upon.”

“Stoke the Fire” follows the new album’s lead single and video, “Let You Down,” which was released in February and is already top 10 at both Mainstream and Active Rock radio. (more…)

Sevendust didn’t waste any time getting 2014 started the best way they know how:  being holed up in the recording studio to create their long-awaited and highly-anticipated acoustic album. Time Travelers & Bonfires will be released in April on 7Bros. Records, in conjunction with ADA Label Services. On April 1, they’ll hit the road for their first U.S. headlining tour of the year, entitled “An Evening With Sevendust,” which kicks off in Athens, Ga., at the Georgia Theatre. It’s their first acoustic trek since 2004, when they were touring in support of their fourth album, Seasons, and a format their fans have been anxiously awaiting for once again. (more…)

Sevendust: Rumors of their demise have been greatly …

Long one of the hardest-works bands in the business, Sevendust took a well-deserved break for most of 2012. Its members worked on side projects and dealt with personal issues before coming together again late in the year to record their ninth studio album, Black Out the Sun, which adds a darker edge to the trademark Sevendust sound. The band already has been touring for most of 2013 and, true to its reputation, plans to stay on the road for a long time to come. When its recent tour with Coal Chamber and Lacuna Coil came to Rams Head Live in Baltimore, Live Metal’s Greg Maki sat down with guitarist John Connolly before the show to discuss the new album and more.

Review by Greg Maki

What more can I say about Sevendust at this point? I have been a die-hard fan since I first heard “Black” in spring 1997, seen them live almost 20 times and covered them extensively here at Live Metal. In 16 years, they have never disappointed me; if anything, they’ve only gotten better with age. They’re easily among my top five favorite bands of all time. (more…)

Hearing 2010’s Cold Day Memory and the new 2013 release Black out the Sun kind of makes you marvel at how Sevendust was able to exist for three albums without Clint Lowery. Always an important part of the band until his departure in 2004, he has become absolutely essential since his return in 2008, as a songwriter, guitarist and, perhaps most noticeably, vocalist. Make no mistake: Lajon Witherspoon is the voice of Sevendust and still is one of the finest singers in heavy music today. But Lowery’s harmonies help those melodies pop, his occasional leads add an extra dimension, and for Black out the Sun, he’s added a monstrous, near-death-metal growl that makes the signature Sevendust sound more lethal than ever. If you’re a fan who checked out after Seasons (2003), see how “Till Death” suits you. For a complete 180, then take Lowery’s lead vocal turn on the mostly acoustic “Got a Feeling.” I can’t think of many people who can pull off those two extremes so effectively. (more…)

Sevendust’s Clint Lowery talks Call Me No one

For 15 years, Sevendust has been one of the hardest-working bands in rock music. But an opportunity arose for its members when they decided to take off most of 2012. Long had guitarist Clint Lowery and drummer Morgan Rose discussed making music together outside their primary band, and the window that unexpectedly opened has led to Call Me No One, whose debut album, Last Parade, was released June 5, 2012. On its release day, Lowery checked in with Live Metal’s Greg Maki to talk about the new project, a possible new strategy for releasing future Sevendust music and more. (more…)
