SEVENDUST guitarist Clint Lowery says that the band has "pretty much wrapped" the recording process for its new album. The follow-up to last year's "All I See Is War" was once again tracked at Studio Barbarosa in Gotha, Florida with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette, who has previously worked with ALTER BRIDGE and SLASH, among others.
Speaking to Cutter and Kaytie of Wisconsin's Razor 94.7 and 104.7 radio stations, Lowery stated about SEVENDUST's 13th studio album (hear audio below): "I'm actually done. I just finished my last thing a few days ago, and Lajon [Witherspoon, vocals] has, like, one more song to sing. And then I'll be sending a couple things, like last-minute things, but we're pretty much wrapped on that thing.
"We're gonna sit on it for a while," he continued. "We may record a little bit more in the spring, but I think we're done. And I'm really pumped up about it; I think it's gonna be killer."
According to Lowery, SEVENDUST's touring schedule won't get in the way of the promotional activities for his upcoming solo album, "God Bless The Renegades", which will arrive on January 31, 2020 via Rise Records.
"SEVENDUST will come out summer of 2020, so I'll have a little bit of a hole to kind of do my thing for a while," he explained. "SEVENDUST needs to go away for a little bit; we can't just stay out. And I think everyone understands that. So it'll be good to give that a break, so we can come back recharged for that."
"All I See Is War" was released in May 2018. It marked the group's first album for Rise Records, the Oregon-based metal and hard rock label which was purchased by BMG in 2015.
SEVENDUST released four singles and videos from "All I See Is War": "Dirty", "Not Original", "Medicated" and "Risen".
In 2016, SEVENDUST received its first-ever Grammy nomination after two decades together as a band. "Thank You", the debut single from 2015's "Kill The Flaw", got the nod for "Best Metal Performance".
