The band previously released a cover of Soundgarden’s “The Day I Tried to Live” as the first single from Blood & Stone, but “Blood from a Stone” marks Sevendust’s first original tune since their acclaimed 2018 album All I See Is War. The track has a vintage Sevendust vibe, with thick, moving riffs from Clint Lowery and John Connolly; heavy rhythms from bassist Vince Hornsby and drummer Morgan Rose; and powerful, soaring vocals from Lajon Witherspoon.
“’Blood from a Stone’ was inspired by the endurance and threshold of our band, the wins and the losses, the good and bad years. That we have more to give, more to say and we pull that out of each other,” Lowery said in a statement.
The Grammy-nominated rock band’s 13th studio album will arrive October 23rd via Rise Records, containing a total of 13 songs. Michael “Elvis” Baskette — known for his work with Alter Bridge, Tremonti, Slash, and more — produced the set, returning to the fold after helming All I See Is War.
