The band will join the tour starting on November 2nd in Sioux Falls, SD. The tour will be hitting Peoria, IL; Nashville, TN; and Little Rock, AR before it wraps up in Portland, ME on November 24th. Sevendust has been known for their amazing live shows as radio personality Lou Brutus recently stated: “The next time you see Sevendust perform at a festival, don’t watch them, watch the side of the stage, because you can bet every other band on the bill will be there taking notes & wondering how they got so fucking good.” Tickets for all dates featuring Sevendust are on sale and fans can head to for more information.

Sevendust formed in 1996 and have forged one of hard rock’s most diehard audiences. 2014’s acoustic offering Time Traveler’s & Bonfires saw an overwhelming response from that community, being quickly funded through a highly successful PledgeMusic campaign. Just a year prior, Black Out The Sun entered Billboard’s Top Hard Music Albums chart at #1 and landed at #18 on the Top 200. They kicked off their illustrious career with an untouchable string of three gold albums, beginning with their self-titled 1997 debut and continuing with Home in 1999 and Animosity in 2001. Along the way, they’ve sold out shows everywhere and given unforgettable performances at the likes of Rock On The RangeWoodstockOZZfest, and Shiprocked!. However, the era of Kill The Flaw starts now.

Sevendust is comprised of iconic vocalist Lajon Witherspoon, the dual-guitar attack of John Connolly and Clint Lowery, and the driving rhythm section of Vince Hornsby on bass and Morgan Rose on drums.
