In 1994, Sevendust first forged a familial tie amongst each other that translated into one of the most diehard audiences in the game. To this day, the connection between fans and the GRAMMY® Award-nominated, gold-certified, hard rock outfit only grows stronger. A trifecta of now-classic gold albums — Sevendust [1997], Home [1999], and Animosity [2001] — ignited their journey. Known as an equally intense and unforgettable live force, they’ve consistently packed houses around the world and decimated stages everywhere from Rock on the Range and Woodstock to OZZfest and Shiprocked! 2015’s Kill The Flaw represented a high watermark. Landing at #13 on the Billboard Top 200, it scored their highest debut on the respective chart since 2010 and marked their fifth consecutive Top 10 on the Top Rock Albums Chart and third straight Top 3 on the Hard Rock Albums Chart. Impressively, the lead single “Thank You” garnered a nomination in the category of “Best Metal Performance” at the 2016 GRAMMY® Awards, a career first. All I See Is War continued the band’s success debuting at #28 on the Billboard 200 and has become a favourite among critics and fans alike thanks to singles like “Dirty,” “Medicated” and “Risen.” 
Released in May 2018, All I See Is War picked up notable critical acclaim, with Rock Sound stating, “impeccably slick… the quality of these songs remains undeniable.” Kerrang! added, “a surprisingly contemporary return,” praising frontman Lajon Witherspoon as “the velvet-throated singer sounding every bit as impressive as he did at the turn of the millennium.” Total Guitar lauded the band for “consistently strong albums, packing heavy hooks, soulful vocal harmonies, and inventive rhythms,” while Classic Rock commented, “the Atlanta band’s best album in years… a solidly emphatic musical statement.” Powerplay declared it a “masterpiece of sound… emphasising the band’s artistry to its full potential.” Upset and Metal Hammer championed Sevendust’s stalwart history; Upset complimenting, “Twelve albums in, they still know how to rock,” with Metal Hammer praising the band’s “enduring appeal.”
