In a recent conversation with The Jasta Show, the drummer Morgan Rose revealed that Sevendust had breakup plans, and they knew when it would happen.
Sevendust appeared on the music scene with the self-titled album in 1997, which sold over 700.000 copies in the United States. Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French contributed to the album with heavy riffs. ‘Black‘ from the record became the Sevendust’s opening song until 2004.
The band’s success continued increasing with the upcoming album ‘Home and Animosity,’ which they toured with many impactful names like Korn, Kid Rock, and Limp Bizkit for its promotion. The album succeeded commercially, especially with the singles titled ‘Praise’ and ‘Angel’s Son.’
The group maintained its success with the albums like ‘Cold Day Memory,’ ‘Kill The Flaw,’ and ‘All I See Is The War.’ The most recent album, ‘Blood & Stone,‘ came out in October 2020. The record also included the song ‘The Day I Tried to Live’ from Soundgarden’s 1994 album ‘Superunknown’ as a tribute to Chris Cornell. The band will hit the road for a tour in September 2022.
Since the beginning of its career, Sevendust has influenced the metal scene with its aggressive style. However, the band’s drummer Morgan Rose recently shared that they knew when they ended their career, and it was an inevitable situation.
Rose stated that they did not have much new work to do. The band members discussed the ending date with one another, and they knew they would not be staying as a band forever. The musician counted his health issues among the reasons for ending the group. The drummer noted that they knew the exact date; however, they did not want to give information about it yet because they respected the fans.
Morgan Rose explained about the band’s ending its career:
“There’s not going to be many left; I’ll tell you that. I can tell you that we’re not going to be around, full-fledged, forever, that’s for sure. The band has discussed, like, ‘When’s the end date?’ I’ve personally been to the doctor for six straight days. I’m going for an MRI tomorrow. It’s breaking down. It’s 26 years of beating the f*ck out of yourself.
It’s all good until it’s not. Somehow or another, we’ve kept it together enough to be able to still do it at a respectable level. But it’s going to happen. I would be lying to you if I told you I didn’t know when. It is going to happen. But we’re not saying anything.”
