SEVENDUST Begins Recording New Album; Early 2020 Release Expected

SEVENDUST has entered the studio to begin recording its new album for an early 2020 release. The follow-up to last year's "All I See Is War" is once again being tracked at Studio Barbarosa in Gotha, Florida with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette, who has previously worked with ALTER BRIDGE and SLASH, among others.

A couple of photos from the studio can be seen below.

This past July, SEVENDUST vocalist Lajon Witherspoon told Anne Erickson of Audio Ink Radio that the band would begin recording the new disc "not too long from now. Everyone's excited to go in and start testing out some of this new stuff and seeing what our producer feels like, and if he likes the direction," he said. "We're definitely happy with what's going on right now. We're taking our time [and are in] no hurry right now. We're going to work with Elvis again. It's coming naturally — it's just us jamming and doing what we do and being the weirdos that we are."

"All I See Is War" was released in May 2018. It marked the group's first album for Rise Records, the Oregon-based metal and hard rock label which was purchased by BMG in 2015.

SEVENDUST released four singles and videos from "All I See Is War": "Dirty", "Not Original", "Medicated" and "Risen".

In 2016, SEVENDUST received its first-ever Grammy nomination after two decades together as a band. "Thank You", the debut single from 2015's "Kill The Flaw", got the nod for "Best Metal Performance".
