SEVENDUST: 'Ugly' Audio Sample Posted Online

A 38-second audio sample of the new SEVENDUST single, entitled "Ugly", has been posted online at this location (Real Media).

"Ugly" is the first single off SEVENDUST's upcoming fifth album, "Next", due on October 11 via 7Bros./WineDark Records. The song, which is scheduled to go for radio adds on August 8, was described by drummer Morgan Rose in a recent interview as a mixed bag with a "huge chorus, broken-down verses and really heavy bridges."

"Next" marks the recording debut with the band of new guitarist Sonny Mayo (ex-AMEN/SNOT). Mayo joined SEVENDUST earlier this year as the replacement for Clint Lowery, who left the group mid-tour in December, citing "personal issues." Lowery has since become a full-time member of DARK NEW DAY, the new "supergroup" also featuring Brett Hestla (ex-CREED, VIRGOS MERLOT) on vocals, Will Hunt (ex-SKRAPE, TOMMY LEE) on drums, Clint's brother Corey Lowery (ex-STEREOMUD, STUCK MOJO) on bass, and Troy McLawhorn (ex-DOUBLE DRIVE) on guitar.

"Next" is the follow-up to "Seasons", which sold a respectable 68,000 copies in its first week of release back in October 2003 to land at position No. 14 on The Billboard 200.

WineDark Records is distributed in the U.S. by Fontana Distribution, a division of Universal Music and Video Distribution (UMVD). SEVENDUST's last four albums were issued through TVT Records.
