Originally formed as Crawlspace in 1994 in the Atlanta area, the quintet know as Sevendust changed their name before they released their self-titled debut album in 1997. The Sevendust cd has now sold over 700,000 copies and remains their best selling title. The band has continued to be road warriors since hitting the tour circuit before their debut made its way up the charts and on to radio waves coast to coast. In 2010, Sevendust's catalog has sold 3 million albums to date and their reputation among their loyal fan base remains intact, so much so that their April 20th released Cold Day Memory cd gave Sevendust their highest first week Billboard chart position of their career at #12.
It is entirely appropriate then to look back at their explosive beginnings and TVT/The Orchard have done just that by issuing Sevendust Definitive Edition with the band's full cooperation. Even more appropriate now that the classic debut album lineup is back together, including Clint Lowery on guitar. The 2010 digitally remastered Definitive Edition includes an additional 5 rare tracks, plus a bonus DVD that includes the original Live and Loud TV Special, unreleased concert footage, plus a look behind the scenes with the band.
Sevendust will continue touring extensively throughout 2010 and are confirmed for the summer Carnival of Madness Tour with Shinedown, Chevelle, Puddle of Mud & 10 Years.
The Start Of It All

"Disturbed's first album had it's 10th anniversary this year, but now Sevendust's self-titled debut gets a special treatment 13 years after it's original release, and boy is it worth it. Before the band got popularized by releasing killer single after single while simultaneously falling off the radar, they poured out a lot of hatred in this beast. I'm sure that back then record labels were jumping on the band wagon trying to find another Korn-sounding group, and while Sevendust definitely fit the mold, their sound was something else. I feel this album does stand the test of time. After the recent release of the band's newest album Cold Day Memory (their first album with the original lineup in 7 years), the Definitive Edition for the self-titled album has been released. The full album itself has been remastered, and while it still retains the raw sound, the bass and guitars sound more thick and upfront. Five rare tracks have been included, and they are worth hearing. The bonus dvd is basically a time capsule from the era when this album was released: live footage, behind the scenes footage, and an EPK are included. The fact that this album is a classic alone should be enough to warrent picking this up."
