Both tracks come off "Alpha", to be released via SEVENDUST's own label, 7 Bros. Records, which recently entered into a partnership with Asylum/Warner Music Group.

Produced by Joe Miller, John Connolly, Morgan Rose and Shawn Grove, "Alpha" will be the group's first effort since 2005's "Next".

"Alpha" track listing:

01. Deathstar
02. Clueless
03. Driven
04. Feed
05. Suffer
06. Beg to Differ
07. Under
08. Story of Your Life
09. Confessions of Hatred
10. Aggression
11. Burn
12. Alpha

SEVENDUST guitarist John Connolly recently told that he and his bandmates will be rocking harder than ever on their upcoming U.S. tour in support of "Alpha". "We're not going to have too many broken-down moments," explained the axeman. "We've been actually running a heavier set ever since [new guitarist] Sonny [Mayo] got in the band. The fans really seem to be reacting well to it."

Mayo joined SEVENDUST in early 2005 as the replacement for Clint Lowery, who joined his brother, bassist Corey Lowery (ex-STUCK MOJO), in a new band, DARK NEW DAY.

Lowery quit in December 2004 with a half-dozen shows remaining on a year-ending tour, leaving the group in the lurch.

"That's the only thing I think any of us were really that bitter about, because Clint going to play with his brother wasn't a surprise or anything at all," Connolly said. "I mean, I called it four years before it happened. But just the way that he did it, I could never leave the guys like that."
