Sevendust Biography

Biography

Sevendust is an alternative metal band from Atlanta, Georgia, USA. They formed in late 1994 under the name "Crawlspace" but later were forced to change their name when a group from the West Coast claimed rights to it. They struggled to find a new title but finally settled on Sevendust after bassist Vinnie Hornsby was looking through his grandmother's garage and found a can of plant pesticide called "Sevindust." Vocalist Lajon Witherspoon's take on the name is that seven is a holy number and we are all made of dust. Their name has also been associated with the computer virus with the same name. They were originally signed to TVT Records, but now have released their first album with Winedark Records (through Universal Music). Sevendust is more than brutal riffs and crushing authority displayed in their live shows. The band is known for their innovative sound that has successfully merged into the evolving music scene. Sevendust released their latest album "Chapter VII: Hope & Sorrow" April 1st, 2008, only about a year after their 2007 album "Alpha" Sevendust's next album titled "Cold Day Memory" is slated for a April 20th 2010 release with their new single titled "Unraveling" now playing on your local rock stations.
