Sevendust are building up to the release of their ‘Black Out the Sun‘ album and have been offering track-by-track commentary and insight leading up to the March 26 street date. Loudwire is proud to bring you the band’s latest track-by-track commentary, the third clip in a video series.

This particular video (watch below) features discussion on the cuts ‘Black Out the Sun,’ ‘Nobody Wants It,’ ‘Dead Roses’ and their current single, ‘Decay.’ Guitarist Clint Lowery and frontman Lajon Witherspoon do most of the talking in the clip, with the other band members occasionally chiming in.

The title track, ‘Black Out the Sun,’ is a particularly personal song for the group. Lowery reveals of its inspiration, “I had my dad passed away in May and … there was an anger phase that I went through. There was an anger not really at God, but at the whole concept of life coming to an end for anybody.”

Witherspoon addresses ‘Nobody Wants It,’ calling it a track that takes on “the elephant in the room” by telling the truth that no one wants to hear. He adds of the song, “Everyone’s always scared [to speak the truth]. We’re f—ing champions of that because everyone’s so close, but we’ve gotten better with that and I think that’s what that song’s about.”

Check out further commentary on those songs, plus ‘Dead Roses’ and ‘Decay’ in the video below. And also check out Part 1 and Part 2 of the track-by-track commentaries at Noisecreep.

Sevendust’s ‘Black Out the Sun’ album will be in stores March 26. You can currently pre-order the album via Amazon here or iTunes here. The group is also hitting the road with Coal Chamber and Lacuna Coil this spring. Check out the dates here.
