Sevendust are one of those rare bands that can rock hard with a very rhythmic, hardcore sound but also shine when creating more melodic music. Lead vocalist LJ Witherspoon has a God-given voice that’s soulful, powerful and enables him to sing an array of styles. One of Sevendust’s most melodic albums is “Seasons,” and Sevendust is celebrating the 21st anniversary of their “Seasons” album this year.

At the time, “Seasons” was by far the most melodic and mellow album Sevendust had created. It also did very well for them, with the album spawning a hit single in “Enemy.”

Sevendust’s “Seasons” album holds a special place in my heart, because it’s one of the first albums I ever played on the radio when I was first getting into rock radio. My first radio gig was on-air at alternative rock station WWDX-FM 92.1 The Edge in Lansing, Michigan, and I remember running the nightly “Cage Match” and pitting Sevendust’s “Enemy” against a Marilyn Manson song. Sevendust won. It was literally one of my first nights on the air, and I’ll never forget it. To this day, “Enemy” is one of Sevendust’s most popular radio singles.

Now, Sevendust have announced a fall 2024 U.S. tour in honor of the 21st anniversary of “Seasons,” which arrived in 2003. The tour also features a bevy of artists from that era, including 10 Years, Return to Dust and Horizon Theory.

The trek will being Sept. 13 in Hampton Beach, Massachusetts, and run through an Oct. 8 date in Salt Lake City, Utah. The tour will reach a bevy of major and mid-major markets, including New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver and Grand Rapids, Michigan. The band also has a festival date lined up for Oct. 10 at Aftershock in Sacramento, California.

A Live Nation ticket pre-sale for select dates starts Wednesday (May 22nd) at 10 a.m. local time using the code SOUNDCHECK. General ticket sales kick off Thursday (May 23) at 10 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster.

It’s a busy time for Sevendust, in that on top of the headlining tour dates, they also have a bevy of festival appearances ahead. They’ll perform at Inkcarceration in Mansfield, Ohio (July 20); Louder Than Life in Louisville, Kentucky (Sept. 27); and Aftershock in Sacramento, California (Oct. 10).

In other news, Witherspoon from Sevendust spoke with Audio Ink Radio last year and said that Bad Omens is one of his new favorite bands. He said he had recently taken his family to see them in concert. “The whole family went to see Bad Omens,” he said. “It was great, man. I’ve never seen those guys…it was sold out. It was great.”
