Sevendust and Coal Chamber team up for tour
Sevendust and Coal Chamber are joining forces for a spring tour that stops in New England for multiple shows next month. The hard rockers will perform at The Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts on Tuesday, April 16. Tickets for the show are available through Tickets.com for $28.
Following the show in Massachusetts, Sevendust and Coal Chamber will hit New Hampshire for a performance at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom on Friday, April 19. Tickets for the show are available through Ticketmaster for $28. They’ll also perform at the Webster Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut on April 14. Lacuna Coil and Stolen Babies will open each of the shows in New England.
Black Out the Sun, Sevendust’s ninth studio effort and follow-up to 2010’s Cold Day Memory, will hit stores on March 23. The band self-produced and recorded the new album at Architekt Studios in Butler, New Jersey with the help of mixer/engineer Mike Ferretti. Lead single “Decay” is streaming here.
“This is the culmination of our career thus far,” stated guitarist John Connolly in a press release. “There are all of these bits and pieces of what we are, but it’s newer and updated. Our style is our style. We constantly strive for a better version of it. There aren’t a lot of bands that have all five original guys after 15 years. It’s a very unique gift we have, and we treasure it.”
Black Out the Sun was completed after Sevendust took a brief hiatus. During that time, guitarist Clint Lowery and drummer Morgan Rose formed the band Call Me No One and released an album titled Last Parade. At the same time, Connolly and bassist Vinnie Hornsby started up the band Projected and released an album titled Human.
Coal Chamber, who reunited for a handful of shows in 2011 after breaking up in 2003, are back on the road for their first tour of the United States in over a decade. The band is currently comprised of original members Dez Fafara, Meegs Rascon and Mike Cox along with new bassist Chela Rhea Harper, who joined in 2011. Their last offering of all new material was 2002’s Dark Days.
