Sevendust Embarks on US Headlining Tour

Hard rock legends, Sevendust, have recently added some new dates to their always expanding ‘Black Out the Sun: World Tour’, exciting their incredibly loyal fan base with a 5 week excursion which will bring the band to 27 different cities throughout its tenure.  The tour kicks off tonight in Dekalb, IL, at Otto’s Nightclub, and will make its way around the US before coming to a close at The Virginia Chili Cookoff in Woodstock, VA, on October 12th.  This current tour comes in support to Sevendust’s most recent album, Black Out The Sun, which was released earlier this year.  Black Out The Sun serves as Sevendust’s 9th studio effort, and the band’s first album to debut at the No. 1 position on the Billboard’s “Top Hard Music Albums” charts, primarily for the highly popular singles, “Decay”- which peaked at the No. 11 position on the Active Rock Charts- and Sevendust’s current single, “Picture Perfect”- which debuted at the No. 35 position on the Active Rock Charts. 

For drummers and drum enthusiasts around the US, this current and incoming Sevendust tour serves as the opportunity to witness one of the finest rock drummers of today, Pearl artist, Morgan Rose.  For the past 15+ years, Morgan’s heavy, hard hitting, drumstick flipping, arm flailing and highly entertaining work behind the drum kit have made him one of the most inspirational drummers on the scene, with the chops and rock grooves to match.  During the recording process and throughout the touring travels that come in support of Black Out the Sun, Morgan Rose has turned to the warm, deep, and full tones of his 6-ply, all-maple Masters MCX drums, which he had custom finished in Red Metallic lacquer and topped off with a custom low-ride Icon Rack System. Morgan’s specs are as follow:

Masters MCX
Red Metallic (334)

22x18 bass drum
12x9 tom
16x16 floor tom
18x16 floor tom
20x14 gong drum
14x5 Sensitone Steel snare drum

6x12 Rocket tom
6x15 Rocket tom
6x18 Rocket tom
