Clint Lowery On New Sevendust Album: “I Think It’s One Of The Best We’ve Done In A While”

During a recent appearance on “Good Company With Scott Bowling,” Sevendust guitarist Clint Lowery discussed the band’s upcoming album. According to him, the effort is “one of the best [they have] done in a while.”

Lowery said the following when asked about release plans:

“We don’t have a date. We have a region, like maybe this summer. There’ll be music rolling out pretty soon in the next couple of months.

I’m really excited about this record. We did that with Elvis Baskette. He’s got his vibe. And this will be our third record with him.”

He also added:

“I’ve listened to it, I’ve not liked it, I loved it, I hated it, and then I fell back in love with it.

When I’m finished with a record, I really… That one took a lot out of me creatively, which is amazing that I even went for [a new solo] EP to do myself [shortly after finishing the SEVENDUST LP], ’cause I was kind of tapped out creatively. I couldn’t even listen to the record afterwards. It was mixed and I heard it, and Elvis did a great job, but it was, like, ‘I’ve gotta put it away for a while.’ And I put it on the other day to listen to it, and I’m, ‘Oh, man, this is gonna be good. People are gonna really dig it.’ I think it’s one of the best [records] we’ve done in a while, man.”

Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger: “You Don’t Ever, Ever, Ever Want To Go On After Sevendust”

During an appearance on Loudwire Nights, Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger took some time to praise Sevendust for their powerful live performances. The singer said the following:

“It was us, then Disturbed, then Sevendust. After the success of ‘Silver Side Up‘, there were a few dates where Sevendust opened for us. I don’t care how many records you’ve sold or how many awards you’ve won or what you’ve done around the world…. you don’t ever, ever, ever want to go on after Sevendust, because they will kick your ass and wipe you all over that stage. They are a force to be reckoned with and it is goosebump-worthy.”
