SEVENDUST ANNOUNCES SECOND LEG OF HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ACOUSTIC HEADLINING “AN EVENING WITH SEVENDUST” TOUR; PLEDGEMUSIC-FUNDED ACOUSTIC STUDIO ALBUM, ‘TIME TRAVELERS & BONFIRES’ OUT APRIL 15
March 24, 2014 – SEVENDUST has announced the second leg of their “An Evening With Sevendust” acoustic U.S. tour, which kicks off April 1 in Athens, GA at the Georgia Theatre. They’re hitting the road to promote their long-awaited and highly-anticipated acoustic album, TIME TRAVELERS & BONFIRES, which will be released April 15 on 7Bros. Records, in conjunction with ADA Label Services.
For TIME TRAVELERS & BONFIRES, the Atlanta band–Lajon Witherspoon (vocals), Morgan Rose (drums/vocals), Clint Lowery (guitar/vocals), John Connolly (guitar/vocals) and Vince Hornsby (bass/vocals)—took suggestions from fans about which SEVENDUST classics they should re-record acoustically. The final choices that made the cut are: “Black,” “Gone,” “Denial,” “Karma,” “Trust,” and “Crucified.”
On Friday, November 22, 2013, SEVENDUST partnered with PledgeMusic for a direct-to-fan campaign to help fund the creation of TIME TRAVELERS & BONFIRES and was set to last a 130 days. Over the course of that first weekend, they reached their goal thanks to their “Family” of fans who had received the exciting news solely from the band’s and band member’s personal Facebook and Twitter sites. SEVENDUST has always said they consider their fans to be part of the SEVENDUST Family, and they certainly proved their love and devotion for the band with the immediate response to the PledgeMusic opportunity.
Even though there are still seven days left of the campaign, SEVENDUST has raised over 222% of their goal with over 3,400 pledges. Exclusive incentives that are still available include a digital download of the album before its available anywhere, autographed T-shirts, a “Making Of” DVD, as well as autographed guitars, amps, stage backdrops and cymbals that have been used on tour.
In radio news, SEVENDUST will guest on the nationally syndicated radio show, “Rockline,” with host Bob Coburn on Monday, April 14 at 8:30pm PT/11:30pm ET. Fans are encouraged to speak with the band that night by calling 1-800-344-ROCK (7625). For a list of stations and for information regarding how fans can hear the broadcast streaming live, go to www.RocklineRadio.com. The show will be streamed on the Rockline website for two weeks beginning the evening after the broadcast.
