Hot on the heels of last week’s premiere of the first single, “Decay,” from their forthcoming album, BLACK OUT THE SUN, SEVENDUST has added a slew of new tour dates to their previously-announced headlining trek with Lacuna Coil that starts February 2 in Winston-Salem, NC at Ziggy’s.

SEVENDUST–Lajon Witherspoon (vocals), Morgan Rose (drums/vocals), Clint Lowery (guitar/vocals), Vince Hornsby (bass/vocals) and John Connolly (guitar/vocals)—will team up with Coal Chamber for a co-headlining tour starting March 28 in Tempe, AZ at The Marquee and concluding April 28 in Dallas, TX at The Palladium Ballroom.  In addition, a handful of shows with Candlelight Red (whose latest DEMONS EP was produced by SEVENDUST drummer Morgan Rose) will start March 15 in New Orleans, LA at the House of Blues.  The SEVENDUST/Coal Chamber run will include stops at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, CA on March 29 and at the Best Buy Theater in New York, NY on April 17.

The Atlanta band has created the SEVENDUST “Black Out The Sun” Pre-Sale Package, which will be available beginning THIS Wednesday, January 16 at  It will offer opportunities for fans to pre-purchase their new album and ticket to the show.

All this touring comes in support of SEVENDUST’s highly anticipated release of their ninth studio album, BLACK OUT THE SUN, March 26 on their 7Bros. Records label (through Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group).  Now that it officially had its online premiere, “Decay” will soon be heard on terrestrial radio stations nationwide and available for download at online retail outlets January 22.

As drummer Morgan Rose recently explained to, “Decay” was actually one of the final songs tracked for BLACK OUT THE SUN, which started as a riff left over from the COLD RAY MEMORY recording sessions.  “We were starting to get burnt and we didn’t want to push it,” he says.  “So we had this riff, and we said, ‘Let’s jam it and see if anything comes of it.’  And before you know it, it became a song that ends up on the record, and everybody listens to it and they end up picking that as the single, which was pretty cool.”

In a review of “Decay,” raved:  “The first single from their forthcoming ninth studio album, BLACK OUT THE SUN, seesaws between tight and tough pummeling from guitar-slingers Clint Lowery and John Connolly, pounding rhythms from Morgan Rose and bassist Vinnie Hornsby, and Lajon Witherspoon’s unmistakable scream from the soul.  After a groan of feedback, eerie clean guitar builds with a hum before steamrolling into a chugging verse.  It’s as potent as the band’s early fare, but simultaneously the melodies rise elegantly with seasoned songwriting chops….This band remains one of the most crushingly consistent of the past 20 years.  They’ve never wavered in their infectiousness or intensity, and that’s why they’re nine albums deep.  For fans, rest assured.  SEVENDUST hit harder and heavier than ever with their best offering since SEASONS and one of the best hard rock records of 2013.”
