Biography

Atlanta, Georgia (1994 – present)

Sevendust is an American / band from Atlanta, Georgia. The band was formed in 1994 by bassist Vince Hornsby, drummer Morgan Rose and guitarist John Connolly. After their first demo, lead vocalist Lajon Witherspoon and guitarist Clint Lowery joined the group. Following a few name changes, the members settled on the name Sevendust and released their self-titled debut, Sevendust, on April 15, 1997.

The self-titled debut sold 311 copies its first week. However, through touring, and Tvt support, the album gained charting success through Billboard and earned gold certification.

Bassist Vince Hornsby joined drummer Morgan Rose in 1994, in a band called Snake Nation. John Connolly, a drummer, left his current band and joined Snake Nation as a guitarist. They recorded their first demo. Not happy with vocals, however, Snake Nation spent a year searching for a new singer before finding Lajon Witherspoon. Six months passed, Clint Lowery joined the band and they renamed themselves Rumblefish.

Rumblefish was short-lived, however, because they found another band with the same name. They renamed themselves Crawlspace, and released My Ruin on the Mortal Kombat soundtrack album entitled More Kombat through TVT Records in 1996. Shortly after, another band named Crawlspace sent notice that they wanted $50,000 for the rights to their name. Rather than purchase the rights, the band members chose to rename themselves Sevendust.

    pretty unfair how they tend to get lumped in with all the generic post-grunge bands when it's pretty clear they have a unique, original sound to them [3]

    Ну... чуть получше остальных групп жанра и всё равно говно.

    Their music has such passion. Comparisons with most other alt metal types just doesn't make sense to me. At least it means they get radio time

    Sevendust don't get lumped in with post-grunge bands... usually it's "nu metal" bands... I agree it's total BS... they have a SOUL-singer for goodness sakes and a synergy as far as how they all write and play together that can't be easily described. Only experienced... (live being the absolute best way...)
