SEVENDUST has announced the third and final leg of their acoustic U.S. tour in support of their critically acclaimed acoustic album, TIME TRAVELERS & BONFIRES, which kicks off November 4 in Knoxville, TN at The International. It's the first time the band will play these cities this year, including the band's hometown of Atlanta. Tickets go on sale Saturday, October 4 at 10:00am EST. They'll be joined by the Alabama rock band A.Z., who'll also be performing acoustic.
Released April 15 on the band's 7Bros. Records, in conjunction with ADA Label Services, TIME TRAVELERS & BONFIRES debuted at #1 on Billboard's "Top Hard Music Albums" chart (their second consecutive #1 album).
After taking a break once the tour concludes to spend the holidays with their families, the Atlanta band will go return to the studio in early 2015 to get back to basics and record the follow-up to their last plugged-in album, BLACK OUT THE SUN.
Even though SEVENDUST will be playing acoustic guitars instead of electric on this run, they won't be turning down the intensity of their notoriously explosive live performances. As New Noise Magazine raved: "Sevendust's acoustic show at the always cool Highline Ballroom in New York City's lower West Side was hands down one of the best shows I've ever been to in my life... At times vocalist Lajon Witherspoon, one of the most talented men in rock, was even moved to tears while thanking the crowd repeatedly... while drummer Morgan Rose kicked ass and seemed to play as intensely as he does in an electric mode...7D showed everyone the range and impact they are capable of... The band, Vince, John, Morgan, Clint and Lajon, have more groove, harmony and talent in their pinkies than most band's ever reach."
While the Buffalo News noted, "'...a bit gentler' for this group is still twice as loud and fierce as most others are at full force. Though the guitars were indeed acoustic, they were still amped up and strumming furiously along to keep up with lead singer Lajon Witherspoon's powerhouse voice. It was acoustic with a caustic bite, something Sevendust managed with style and confidence." And the Denver Post praised: "Most songs were rearranged to be performed acoustic, and while toned down, they resonated with power and energy few bands can match without being overwhelmingly amped up with distortion."
Last month, SEVENDUST gave television viewers a glimpse into their acoustic show with their first-ever concert special on AXS TV, which aired as part of the network's "Headliner Club Series." Check out "Come Down" from the show here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mPG6_LpqLw.
