After teasing fans earlier this year with a cover of Soundgarden's "The Day I Tried to Live," Sevendust have officially unveiled the first original track, "Blood From a Stone," off their forthcoming 13th album, Blood & Stone.

This is a brooding, dark track defined by undulating rhythms, slightly dissonant melodies and a strong, push/pull dynamic thanks to the anthemic accented drumming from Morgan Rose. Washing away the angst, at least in part, is Lajon Witherspoon, whose uplifting presence counters the bleaker moments on the track.

"'Blood From a Stone' was inspired by the endurance and threshold of our band, the wins and the losses, the good and bad years. That we have more to give, more to say and we pull that out of each other," stated guitarist Clint Lowery.

What you needed, what you wanted
It's been here the whole time
So sorry for the heavy burden
Time to let it roll, let it ride
And follow your heart ‘till we die.
Keep searching for something

Once we believe we were all enough
We keep losing the fight
I'm sorry for the things that I have done
You took it from me, like blood from a stone

What you see you run right over
I've been walking straight lines
Now we free the guilty man
Time to let it go, let it right
And follow your heart ‘till we die
Keep searching for something

Once we believe we were all enough
We keep losing the fight
I'm sorry for the things that I have done
You took it from me, like blood from a stone

Something don’t feel right
Hold on a bit longer dear
I won't be down or long
No I won't be ripped away
Oh I think I've had enough
You'll never know the feeling

Once we believe we were all enough
We keep losing the fight
I'm sorry for the things that I have done
You took it from me, Like blood from a stone
