Sevendust’s John Connolly Says New Album Is “A Greatest-Hits Record Of Songs You’ve Never Heard Before”


Sevendust guitarists John Connolly and Clint Lowery recently chatted with Guitar World regarding the bands new album, “Black Out The Sun“. Speaking of the sound of the record, Connolly said:

“It has a totally different vibe about it. It’s darker, but with a little bit of hope. There’s always that light at the end of the tunnel. When I listen to it, it’s almost like a greatest-hits record of songs you’ve never heard before. There’s an album that every one of those songs could potentially live on. There’s some stuff that sounds like it might belong on Home, some that sounds like Seasons. Then there are some Alpha moments as well.”

Lowery added:

“We didn’t over-think the record. It has a spontaneous feel. It has the spirit of our older records, but it’s evolved as well. If you’re already a fan, it caters to the elements you’ve always liked. We’re proud of this album.”

Black Out The Sun” is being prepared for a March 26th release date through 7 Bros. Records.
