SEVENDUST guitarist Clint Lowery will enter the studio this weekend to begin recording his first solo album. Helming the disc will be Michael "Elvis" Baskette, who has previously worked with SEVENDUST, ALTER BRIDGE and SLASH, among others. A late 2019 release via Rise Records is expected.
On Tuesday (June 4), Clint took to his Facebook page to write: "Very excited to hit the studio Saturday. Stay tuned for some updates and some other cool stuff. Very grateful"
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.
