Sevendust is an alternative metal band from Atlanta, Georgia. They were originally signed to TVT Records, but then released their fifth album with Winedark Records (through Universal Music) in the US, and Roadrunner Records overseas. Currently, they are signed to their own label 7 Bros. Records in conjunction with Asylum Records.
The band formed in late 1994 under the name "Tomorrow's Pain" then switched to "Rumblefish" then to "Crawlspace", but later were forced to change their name to Sevendust when a group from the West Coast claimed rights to Crawlspace. The band was heavily influenced by Metallica, Faith No More, King's X and Living Colour. During their time as Crawlspace, Lee Banks served as the lead guitarist, but was opted out for Clint Lowery when touring became too much for him.
Sevendust released their first album Sevendust on April 15, 1997, known for its heavy riffs, angry vocals and thrash-like drumming, as the songs "Black" and "Bitch". "Black" was the opening song for nearly every Sevendust concert until 2004. The debut album also contains the song "My Ruin" from the Mortal Kombat soundtrack album entitled More Kombat released by TVT Records. After they appeared at Ozzfest 1998 and Dynamo Open Air the same year, their self-titled album went gold. In the same year they released a compilation called Live and Loud which featured live footage of the band at Chicago's Metro.
As of October 2009, Sevendust are recording a new album in Chicago with producer Johnny K, who has produced other successful rock acts such as Disturbed, Staind, Finger Eleven, and 3 Doors Down. The band launched a newly designed website with the same address, promoting the new album they are currently recording in Chicago. The band are currently posting videos daily on their official site and their YouTube channel, with updates on the new album, recording in the studio and also videos of them in the new "house" they are recording from. Stepping out of the box, from regular recording sessions they are showing the fans how the album process is done, and every step in the intricate process.
