Sevendust released its ninth studio album, Black Out The Sun, on Tuesday (March 26th), along with a music video for "Decay," the CD's first official single. Drummer Morgan Rose told us that the origins of the song actually go back to the band's previous effort, 2010's Cold Day Memory: "We were kind of getting burnt, you know. I mean, we were writing a lot of songs all at once and we were lucky that we were getting quality material out of this, but we were starting to get burnt and we didn't want to push it. So there was this riff that we had from Cold Day Memory and it was basically the chorus and the verse to 'Decay.' And we said, 'You know, let's jam it and see if anything comes of it.' And before you know it, you know, that ends up on the record and then everybody listens to it and they end up picking that as the single."
"Decay" is currently a Top 15 track on the Active Rock radio charts.
Sevendust kicks off a U.S. spring tour on Thursday (March 28th) in Tempe, Arizona, with Coal Chamber co-headlining. The bill will also feature Lacuna Coil on the entire trip as direct support, with Candlelight Red opening the first half of the schedule and Stolen Babies opening the second.
A second leg of solo headlining dates will begin on April 30th in Monroe. Louisiana, with support coming from bands like In This Moment and Pop Evil.
