Atlanta, Georgia-based metallers SEVENDUST have issued the following update:
"Well, we're enjoying some time off. It was great seeing everyone on the last run and we look forward to the next that starts soon. We're gonna be changing the setlist up, so expect some surprises on the next tour.
"Very excited about going to Europe in December.
"All is well in the SEVENDUST world. Should start writing some new music soon, but will be touring on 'Hope and Sorrow' for awhile. The next record is going to be a lot of work and we're gonna take our time to deliver the goods.
"Thanks to all of you for allowing us to exist!"
SEVENDUST guitarist Clint Lowery entered a studio on September 11 to begin recording his first solo album. Work on the project is expected to be finished by the end of October, although a release date has yet to be determined. Lowery's brother and former DARK NEW DAY bandmate, Corey Lowery, is producing the record. Clint is currently streaming demos of three tracks at his MySpace page.
The guitarist, a founding member of SEVENDUST, rejoined the group earlier this year after a five-year absence during which he worked with DARK NEW DAY and KORN.
SEVENDUST is continuing to support its latest album, "Chapter VII: Hope and Sorrow", which came out last spring. The set's current single, "The Past", features a guest appearance from Chris Daughtry.
