For many years, the hard rock and metal genre was predominantly populated with white male musicians, but from the late '80s on there were more rockers breaking that color barrier. Sevendust frontman Lajon Witherspoon was one such artist who did so, and he spoke about finally meeting one of the musicians who helped break the barrier during an appearance on the 'Talk Is Jericho' podcast with Chris Jericho.
With the April 15 release of their crowdfunded acoustic album 'Time Travelers & Bonfires' just a few weeks away, Sevendust have added more dates to their previously announced acoustic 'An Evening With Sevendust' tour.
In Part 1 of our interview with Sevendust, singer Lajon Witherspoon, bassist Vince Hornsby and drummer Morgan Rose spoke about their latest experience on ShipRocked 2014 and their forthcoming acoustic tour. In Part 2 of our interview (watch above), the band talks about their upcoming acoustic album and more.
Sevendust fans have anxiously been awaiting the band's 'Time Travelers & Bonfires' acoustic album, and to give fans a taste of what's to come, the band has teamed with Loudwire to exclusively premiere the single 'Black.'

Hangovers be damned, ShipRocked Day 2 kicked off on the private island of Great Stirrup Cay in the beautiful Bahamas. Rockers that rolled out of bed early enough were in for something special as Art of Dying officially kicked things off on the beach stage. With a high energy performance, Frontman Jonny Hetherington took a moment to take it all in calling the experience a true “bucket list” moment for his band. They wouldn’t be the only band to hit the beach stage on Monday though, Nonpoint also offered up a blazing set proving that it really is better in the Bahamas.
'That Metal Show' is back in action and set for a new episode on Saturday night (Jan. 25). Already in its 13th season, the VH1 Classic series has an all-star lineup in the works, with members of Sevendust and Living Colour to guest on the Jan. 25 episode.
Last year, Sevendust embarked on a crowdfunding campaign to record an acoustic album. According to their PledgeMusic page, more than 2700 people have contributed, and they have exceeded their goal by more than 60 percent with more than two months remaining. Now, more details have been revealed about the project.
Sevendust are ready to rock a new acoustic album for the fans, but they're asking for a little help to further the project. The band is the latest to utilize a PledgeMusic campaign to help fund one of their passion projects.
One of the most beloved musicians ever in the history of metal is the late Dimebag Darrell Abbott, so it's no wonder that rockers rally whenever his name is attached to an event. Sevendust have signed on to headline the 2013 'Ride for Dime' event taking place Oct. 5 in Nashville, Tenn.
