Anne Erickson of Gannett conducted an interview with SEVENDUST guitarist John Connolly earlier today (Wednesday, July 10) in Lansing, Michigan. You can now watch the chat at this location.
"There's a lot of talk, a lot of buzz kind of going around about another acoustic tour," John said during the interview. "We've always wanted to do one, but we really don't want to do it without a record, so we may be hopping in at some point to do some kind of an acoustic EP."
He added: "Ideally, it would be nice if we could get it kind of wrapped up before the end of the year, but I think, realistically, it might be January, February, March, somewhere around there, that we'll hop in for a few weeks. [We'll] probably revisit some older songs and then do a handful of newer songs that we can do on the acoustic thing. So that's kind of off a little ways, but it's definitely something that we wanna focus on, for sure."
SEVENDUST's ninth studio album, "Black Out The Sun", sold 27,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 18 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD, which arrived in stores on March 26 via the band's 7Bros. Records in conjunction with ADA Label Services, was recorded at Architekt Music studios in Butler, New Jersey with engineer Mike Ferretti.
Anne Erickson is also a music journalist for Gibson; radio host and managing editor of Audio Ink Radio; and frontwoman of UPON WINGS.
