Sevendust have inked a new record deal with Rise Records, and announced that they will be releasing a new album in 2018. Craig Ericson, founder of Rise Records, had this to say on the big news, “Signing Sevendust is definitely one of the highlights of my career. I’m honored to work with an artist with a legacy as great as theirs, and I’m really excited to work with them on the forthcoming album.”
Guitarist John Connolly added, “For Sevendust, it was important to find a label that understood where we’ve been and have some new ideas and strategies on where we can go. Through our 20 years playing together, we have garnered the best fans in the world that have become our extended family. Rise from the very beginning explained a very unique game plan to us that we feel like is going to help us celebrate our diehard Sevendust fans and expose us to new ones. There is an excitement we feel just knowing the Rise team is going to be behind this new chapter of our career.”
Michael “Elvis” Baskette, known for his work with Alter Bridge, Tremonti, Slash, and others, will be at the helm when the band begins recording in the Fall. As I stated earlier, the band’s 12th studio release is scheduled for Spring of 2018. Get excited!
