On March 26, Sevendust will release Black Out the Sun, their ninth studio album. In this day and age of bands getting dropped and disappearing after a few years, the mere fact that the group is around 20 years after they formed is impressive enough, but we'll be damned if this isn't their strongest effort yet.

Noisecreep got its hands on a behind-the-scenes look at the stories behind two tracks from Black Out the Sun. Check them out below and just in case you missed it yesterday, here's another exclusive video from Sevendust!
