With the release of their 13th studio album Blood & Stone just a few days away, rock juggernauts Sevendust are releasing the music video for their new single “Dying To Live.” The intense video follows the aftermath of a story of a robbery gone wrong and the effect it has on the characters. The main character plays through the tragic events that take place after the robbery in his mind. The video ends the same way it begins, leaving the viewer to decide for themselves if he will go down a different path. The video was directed by Jensen Noen, known for his work with Falling In Reverse, Crown The Empire, and Asking Alexandria amongst others. The video for “Dying To Live” can be seen here: https://youtu.be/vx9UJFojS4I.
The new single “Dying To Live” impacts at radio this week and is the second single from their upcoming album available this Friday. “Dying To Live” will bring fans back to the days of early era Sevendust and showcases what has earned singer Lajon Witherspoon, guitarists Clint Lowery and John Connolly, bassist Vince Hornsby, and drummer Morgan Rose a loyal army of fans – now referred to as the Sevendust family. The song comes hot on the heels of band’s popular cover of Soundgarden’s “The Day I Tried To Live” which made it to the Top 15 at Active Rock radio in the USA. Blood & Stone marks a return for the band with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, known for his work with Alter Bridge, Tremonti, Slash, and others. Blood & Stone is available for pre-order in various configurations at https://RiseRecords.lnk.to/BloodAndStone.
