Sevendust formed in 1994 and exploded into mainstream metal with their 1997 self-titled debut album. The record went gold, and the band landed a coveted slot on Ozzfest ’98 alongside Ozzy Osbourne, Tool, Limp Bizkit, System of a Down, Incubus, Motörhead, Megadeth, Melvins, and Soulfly. In 1999, Sevendust released their sophomore mega-hit, Home. The album debuted at #19 on the Billboard Top 200. That same year, the band played the epic Woodstock ’99, which marked the 30th anniversary of the original festival. After two more studio albums, the band released the ultra-heavy Alpha, which debuted at #14 on the Billboard Top 200 in 2007. In 2008, the band saw the return of previously-departed guitarist Clint Lowery. They released a new LP, entitled Chapter VII: Hope & Sorrow. The star-studded LP featured appearances by Christ Daughtry (Daughtry), Mark Tremonti (Creed, Alter Bridge), and Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge, Slash). The disc debuted at #19 on the Billboard Top 200. Sevendust recently released their 9th studio album, Black Out The Sun, on their label 7Bros. Records via Warner Music Group. The music video for the album’s first single, “Decay”, is out now as well. The highly-anticipated new album comes nearly three years after 2010’s Cold Day Memory, which hit #12 on the Billboard Top 200.
Otherwise are one of the most humble, hard-working bands in the music business. Their major label debut, True Love Never Dies, was released on Century Media Records in early 2012. Before that, however, the band was already making waves. Fox News dubbed them one of the best unsigned bands in the country, and their single, “Soldiers”, sold over 10,000 copies on iTunes. The album’s second single, “I Don’t Apologize (1,000 Pictures)”, gave the band their second Top 10 hit. They have been touring relentlessly for the past 2 years, playing festivals like 48 Hours, Rock On The Range, and Rock Allegiance, as well as supporting bands like 3 Doors Down, Stone Sour, Papa Roach, Daughtry, Pop Evil, Hellyeah, Puddle of Mudd, Buckcherry, Taproot, and Hurt. The Wise Onez are once again dominated “World’s Loudest Month” this year, playing Rock On The Range (Columbus, OH) Carolina Rebellion (Charlotte, NC) and Welcome To Rockville (Jacksonville, FL). They guys are taking a short break from the road, but heading out again this summer with Sevendust and some additional headlining dates. Otherwise just released the third single – “Die For You” – off their smash-hit debut album. – by Matt Bishop
