SEVENDUST co-founder, guitarist and vocalist Clint Lowery will release his debut solo album, "God Bless The Renegades", on January 31, 2020 via Rise Records. The official Mark Lediard-directed music video for the disc's title track can be seen below.
"I wanted to give thanks and praise to the people who step away from the 'sheep' mentality," Lowery said about the song. "The forward-thinkers and dreamers who create real change and evolution — the ones who don't fear being different."
The first single from the album, "Kings", arrived earlier in the month. At the time, Lowery said that the song expressed "redemption after a very dark chapter" of his life. "Through the chaos of addiction, navigating toxic relationships, and depression, I came out of it all empowered and more driven than ever," he said.
Lowery recorded the album with producer and co-writer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (SLASH, ALTER BRIDGE) at Studio Barbarosa in Florida. The drums on the disc were laid down by VAN HALEN bassist Wolfgang Van Halen.
"God Bless The Renegades" track listing:
01. God Bless The Renegades
05. What's The Matter
06. You Go First
07. Allowed To Run
08. Silver Lining
09. She's Free
10. Do We Fear God
Lowery originally announced his plans to record a solo album in June 2018. He stated at the time: "In the past, I released a few things close to a solo release with HELLO DEMONS… MEET SKELETONS (mainly acoustic); CALL ME NO ONE, which I did with [SEVENDUST drummer] Morgan Rose. Both projects were truly amazing experiences and still want to entertain doing more CALL ME NO ONE and HELLO DEMONS… MEET SKELETONS in the future. But I've decided to release a project under my name that is gonna represent where I'm at musically right now. I feel the need to do this and stand on my own two feet and push myself to make some music that moves me. To express myself."
Earlier this year, Clint said that his debut solo disc would "have all of the elements of previous releases (HELLO DEMONS… MEET SKELETONS and CALL ME NO ONE) but also some new territory." He also revealed that the album would feature "some very cool contributions from some amazing musicians."
Back in February, Clint told Audio Ink Radio that he would sing and "play everything" he could on his solo album, "even a couple of songs on drums, but I'll have a drummer come in and do most of the drums. Everything else, I'll do myself," he said.
HELLO DEMONS… MEET SKELETONS released four EPs between 2009 and 2013.
CALL ME NO ONE issued its debut record, "Last Parade", in May 2012.
In addition to SEVENDUST and CALL ME NO ONE, Lowery has been a member of, written, recorded, or performed with DARK NEW DAY, KORN, RED, Tommy Lee's METHODS OF MAYHEM, SNOT, 10 YEARS and DIGITAL SUMMER, among others.
