SEVENDUST To Release Deluxe Version Of Gold-Certified Self-Titled Debut

SEVENDUST has had a brutal grip on eardrums since 1997 when its debut self-titled LP hit stores via TVT Records and propelled the band into the spotlight of the metal world. Refusing to rest on their initial success, the Atlanta quintet has stayed extremely busy since then, releasing seven more albums and touring nonstop, including slots with METALLICA, KORN and KID ROCK (plus countless festival appearances).

This June, SEVENDUST continues its explosive run with a deluxe reissue of its self-titled debut. Produced by Jay Jay French and Mark Mendoza of TWISTED SISTER, the original has sold more than 700,000 copies and was certified gold in 1999. This digitally re-mastered reissue provides some extra muscle to all of the original hits (including "Black" and "Bitch") and tacks on five bonus tracks and a DVD, which features the nationally aired TV special "Live and Loud", recorded at The Metro in Chicago, and additional never-before-seen live and behind the scenes footage of the band. The bonus tracks have been culled from various releases, making the definitive edition a must-have for any fan. "Breathe" was previously only available on the "Strangeland" film soundtrack, "Terminator (Breathe Remix)" on the MTV "Celebrity Death Match" soundtrack, and live renditions of "Bitch" and "Prayer" were only released on the Japanese edition of the record. "Sevendust (Definitive Edition)" also includes a cover of ALICE COOPER's legendary summer anthem "School's Out".

"Sevendust" was recorded in Atlanta during the tragic terrorist bombing of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. The widespread panic in Atlanta at the time fueled the band to create one of the fiercest albums to date.

Originally known as CRAWLSPACE, the SEVENDUST lineup is made up of singer/frontman Lajon Witherspoon, bassist Vince Hornsby, guitarists John Connolly and Clint Lowery, and drummer Morgan Rose.
