SEVENDUST Planning Farewell Tour?
Veteran rockers SEVENDUST, formed in 1994 and making albums since 1997, are thinking about calling it a day, according to The Pulse Of Radio. In an interview earlier this week, drummer Morgan Rose and vocalist Lajon Witherspoon hinted that the band’s next album and tour could be their last. Rose tweeted later on, “So guys: The whole farewell thing is bein ‘talked’ about. we love each other, there’s no issue with us. we just miss our families. no decision yet.” He later added, “Try n chill on making it into something it’s not. we love u guys n we are FOR SURE doing another record n touring it.”
Rose told The Pulse Of Radio that SEVENDUST feels lucky to have loyal fans who have kept the group going all these years. “We constantly have to look and say, ‘Wow, man, you know, this is 13 years,’ with a lot of trouble that’s happened with us over those 13, and to be still moving and still touring and still getting a reaction — testament to the people that support us,” he said. “You know, I’ve always said I’ve got a love affair with the people that support our band, and they’ve given me the socks I’ve got on my feet right now. Everything I’ve got’s ’cause of them.”
SEVENDUST issued its eighth studio album, “Cold Day Memory”, in April 2010 and has been on the road almost constantly since the record’s release.
The band is currently on the Rockstar Uproar Festival tour, alongside AVENGED SEVENFOLD, THREE DAYS GRACE, SEETHER, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, ESCAPE THE FATE and others. The trek pulls into Virginia Beach on Thursday (September 1).
