Sevendust have a busy year ahead of them in 2013, as the band is set to drop its ninth studio album, ‘Black Out the Sun,’ on March 26 of next year, with the lead single ‘Decay’ debuting Jan. 22. The band will also embark on a headlining trek with Italian rockers Lacuna Coil.

Loudwire recently had the opportunity to catch up with singer Lajon Witherspoon and guitarist John Connolly as they were aboard the ShipRocked 2012 cruise. Sevendust, having been ShipRocked veterans, talked all about how much they enjoy the experience of rocking out on a boat, as well as Witherspoon’s snorkeling fail. They also spoke about the new album, the upcoming tour with Lacuna Coil and plans to hit the road with Coal Chamber.
