Sevendust guitarist Clint Lowery must not be a fan of idle hands because he sure is a busy man these days. Other than his main gig as the guitarist in Sevendust, Lowery is also about to release a new album with his supergroup Dark New Day, and now, he’s working on another side project with Sevendust bandmate and drummer Morgan Rose.
After being handpicked by Kiss in last year’s Guitar Center onstage contest, Candlelight Red have released their debut album ‘The Wreckage,’ and the band has been on tour with some major acts such as 10 Years, Saving Abel and others. Now, they are gearing up for a string of dates with Sevendust.
Over the weekend, a never ending cavalcade of today’s hottest rock bands marched into the Luxor Festival Grounds and set up shop. The two-day '48 Hours Festival’ boasted two jam-packed days of 22 bands playing on two stages. The show marked the first outdoor hard rock and metal festival to descend on the Vegas Strip, and with any luck, the first of many.
Despite ongoing rumors of a Sevendust split up ahead, lead guitarist Clint Lowery is assuring fans that band members are as strong as brothers. Lowery -- who broke away from Sevendust in 2003, rejoined in 2008 and helped pen 2010’s 'Cold Day Memory' -- says being back with the guys feels right.
