The legendary Sevendust returns to Australia and New Zealand in April 2019 Рpresented by MJR Presents and 24/7 Metal and Rock station/app The Faction! Sevendust are coming to celebrate their 2018 Rise Records release All I See Is War Рa record that has energised fans all over the world. Pre-Sale tickets for the Sevendust AU/NZ tour go on sale 10AM AEST Thursday December 6 and General Tickets go on Sale at 10AM AEST on Monday 10 December at mjrpresents.com. 

The iconic five-piece hard rock/metal outfit will visit Auckland, NZ’s¬†Powerstation¬†Tuesday 23rd April, then head on to Australia, kicking off the AU leg Thursday 25th April at¬†The Tivoli, Brisbane, then on to¬†The Metro¬†in Sydney on Friday 26 April,¬†The Forum¬†in Melbourne on the 27th,¬†The Gov¬†in Adelaide on the 29th and then finish the tour in Perth at¬†Capitol¬†on the 30th April.

Hysteria Mag¬†said that All I See is War is “…heavy, angry yet vulnerable ‚Ķ the reasons why Sevendust continue to resonate with an ever-widening audience“.¬†Guitarist for the band, Clint Lowery, says of their extremely dedicated fanbase –¬†“We take pride in the connection we have – We‚Äôve always been a people‚Äôs band. We‚Äôre typical guys who just happen to make a career on stage. With this relationship to the fans, we realize how much we need each other, so we push ourselves to deliver. We don‚Äôt stop. We keep moving.”¬†

Sevendust¬†first forged a familial tie amongst each other in 1994 that translated into one of the most die-hard audiences in the game. To this day, the connection between fans and the GRAMMY¬ģAward-nominated gold-certified hard rock outfit only grows stronger. For their twelfth full-length and first release for Rise Records¬†All I See Is War, the quintet‚ÄĒLajon Witherspoon [lead vocals], Clint Lowery [lead guitar, backing vocals], John Connolly [rhythm guitar, backing vocals], Vince Hornsby [bass], and Morgan Rose [drums] – did the best thing they could possibly do to combat all of the division in the streets and on social media; they went and made a Sevendust record‚ÄĒjust bigger, ballsier, and bolder than before – and they couldn’t be more excited to bring it to Australia and New Zealand.

A trifecta of now-classic gold albums‚ÄĒSevendust¬†[1997],¬†Home¬†[1999], and¬†Animosity¬†[2001]‚ÄĒ ignited their journey. Known as an equally intense and unforgettable live force, they‚Äôve consistently packed houses around the world and decimated stages everywhere from¬†Rock on the Range¬†and¬†Woodstock¬†to¬†OZZfest¬†and¬†Shiprocked!¬†2015‚Äôs¬†Kill The Flaw¬†represented a high watermark. Bowing at #13 on the¬†Billboard¬†Top 200, it scored their highest debut on the respective chart since 2010 and marked their fifth consecutive Top 10 on the¬†Top Rock Albums Chart¬†and third straight Top 3 on the¬†Hard Rock Albums Chart. Most impressively, the lead single “Thank You” garnered a nomination in the category of “Best Metal Performance” at the¬†2016 GRAMMY¬ģ¬†Awards, a career first.¬†All I See Is War¬†represents yet another new beginning and new point of connection for fans.
