Sevendust Plan August 2016 North American Tour with Crobot + Red Tide Rising
It has been nearly a decade since Sevendust have done a headlining tour that includes Canada. That will change in August when the band embarks on a trek with Crobot and Red Tide Rising. The tour kicks off Aug. 2 in Bloomington, Ill. and wraps on Aug. 20 in Columbia, Mo. The final show on the trek also will find Killswitch Engage joining the lineup.
Tickets for the tour go on sale Thursday (June 9) at 10AM at this location. Check out the list of cities and venues below.
Sevendust are touring in support of their latest album Kill the Flaw, which was released last October and debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
In an interview with Loudwire, frontman Lajon Witherspoon described the meaning of the album’s title: “It’s a testimony to the struggle that we’ve gone through. We’re just trying to kill those flaws. People are trying to keep us down and I think it’s made us stronger. The song “Thank You” kind of goes back to that. It’s the angst, to strive and to motivate us to continue.”
