SEVENDUST has been forced to cancel its previously announced U.K. shows as the support act for ALTER BRIDGE and SHINEDOWN. The trek was scheduled to kick off on December 14 at Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham and conclude on December 21 at The O2 in London. SEVENDUST is still slated to play three "Acoustic Xmas" shows in Florida and Georgia at the end of the month.
SEVENDUST broke the news of its cancelation via social media earlier today. The band wrote: "UK family - It is with a heavy heart we have to say - we will not be able to join our brothers in @alterbridge & @Shinedown on our upcoming U.K. dates. Morgan [Rose, drums] is sick and in the hospital and under Dr. orders not to leave the country. We WILL make it up to you! See you at Xmas."
SEVENDUST guitarist Clint Lowery recently said that the band has "pretty much wrapped" the recording process for its new album, tentatively due next summer. The follow-up to last year's "All I See Is War" was once again tracked at Studio Barbarosa in Gotha, Florida with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette, who has previously worked with ALTER BRIDGE and SLASH, among others.
"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".
UK family - It is with a heavy heart we have to say - we will not be able to join our brothers in @alterbridge & @Shinedown on our upcoming U.K. dates. Morgan is sick and in the hospital and under Dr. orders not to leave the country. We WILL make it up to you! See you at Xmas.
