Clint Lowery unleashed a surprise new solo EP, “Grief & Distance.” The Sevendust guitarist recorded the set at home, while on self-quarantine due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“This EP was my way to process the loss of my mother, and the hard hit and the uncertainty of my livelihood from the pandemic,” Lowery said in a statement. “I escaped into my basement and into the songwriting process…it never fails me.”

“Grief & Distance” features three now, plugged-in songs: “Distance,” “Haunted” and “I’m Wrong.” In addition, the set offers acoustic versions of “What’s the Matter” and “Kings,” two songs off Lowery’s debut solo album, “God Bless the Renegades,” which arrived in January.

Lowery recently spoke with Audio Ink Radio about his debut solo album, “Renegades,” and why 2020 was the right time to release it.

“I’ve wanted to do a full solo record for a long time,” he said. “I flirted around with it with some other releases that I did under the radar, but as far as using my name and it being with a label and everything, I’ve been wanting to do it a long time, but the Sevendust machine never really stops going. I found an opportunity and window to work it in, and it took a lot of setting up logistics, but I figured it out, and it’s been a long time in the making for me to release it.”
