With the release of their 13th studio album “Blood & Stone” just a few days away, heavy metal legends 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, Asking Alexandria to name a few. The video for “Dying To Live” can be seen below.

Recently, Sevendust impacted rock radio and unveiled a lyric video for their cover of the Soundgarden classic “The Day I Tried to Live.” The song is currently moving up the charts and the reaction to the track has been overwhelmingly favorable to the unique interpretation the band put on the classic track. The lyric video for the song was created by Wayne Joyner (known for his work with Dream Theater). It features a lone figure walking down a road thinking about his life with clips of the band woven throughout. The video can be seen below.
In 1994, Sevendust first forged a familial tie among each other that translated into one of the most die-hard 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” , “Home” , and “Animosity” — 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. Bowing 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. Most 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 favorite among critics and fans alike thanks to singles like “Dirty,” “Medicated” and “Risen.”
