SEVENDUST previously played all of “Animosity” at a January 2021 livestream event from Opav in Orlando, Florida. At the time, singer Lajon Witherspoon told Midwest Beatdown: “Oh my God. There’s some songs on [that album] that we’ve never played, I think. It’s gonna be fun to get back and do it, and also to play some of those songs we’ve never had the time to play, and to see each other again and to laugh with each other and look at each other, and start jamming and somebody’s back breaks or falls out, because we’re old now.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back and doing ‘Animosity’ and having a good time, and hopefully bringing some type of sense of weird normalcy in this world that we’re trying to navigate through during this pandemic,” he continued. “And I can’t believe it’s gonna be 20-something years since we recorded it. Oh my God.
“So many people have been asking for it, so that was another weird thing. It was, like, ‘We’ve gotta do this,'” Lajon added. “And I’ve kind of gone [back] and listened to the songs, and there were some really cool songs. And what a great time in our careers as young men growing up and just kind of learning about life and the industry and everything that was going on with it. It’s just really cool.”
SEVENDUST‘s third album, “Animosity” was released in November 2001 through TVT Records. The disc peaked at No. 28 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in March 2002 for shipments in excess of half a million copies.
SEVENDUST‘s 13th studio album, “Blood & Stone”, was released in October 2020 via Rise Records. The follow-up to 2018’s “All I See Is War” was once again tracked at Studio Barbarosa in Gotha, Florida with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, who has previously worked with ALTER BRIDGE and SLASH, among others.
