On October 2, 2015, Sevendust released their tenth studio album, Kill The Flaw! It di incredibly well here in the US, reaching number two on both the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums, and the Top Rock Albums. It also reached number thirteen on the over all Billboard 200. Other world wide success isn't quite known to us, though it did reach number 44 in Australia. Clearly, fans are greatly loving it.
They released the lead single, and opening track, "Thank You" several months prior to the album's release, on July 26. We can definitely see why they chose this to be a single for the album, because its about starting over after someone was holding you back and slowing you down. We can't quite tell if the "Thank you for coming around", is sarcasm or not, but either way it sounds good.
"Thank You" does definitely stand out, but we also feel compelled to give honorable mentions to the album's fourth track, "Letters." Not only is it beautifully done, but it has a great message. Nobody is alone, and we all make mistakes. That doesn't need to hold us back though, because we can grow and learn from it all. This song appears to state that and we really enjoy it.
The entire album is very good, and covers many different topics. We're not going to give it away though. If you're curious about the album, you can pick it up wherever music is sold.
Also keep in mind that you can catch Sevendust live very soon! If you're in Australia, you can see them live March 11 through the 19th at various different spots. If you're in the US, you have a little bit longer to wait, but many more chances to see them.
They will not only be touring with Trivium and Like A Storm April 26 through May 27, but they will also be performing at most of the festivals happening this April /May. Sevendust will be appearing at Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville, Lunatic Luau '16, Carolina Rebellion, Rock On The Range, Rock'n Derby, and the River City Rockfest.
