Sevendust are now signed to Wine Dark records after splitting from TVT. Part of the deal may have been that their old home gets to release a best of, and that's what they've got planned on December 27. The Best Of (Chapter One: 1997-2004) features 16 songs, including the never-before released cover of the Alice Cooper classic, "School's Out."
Sevendust has a new album, Next, out and it's the first away from TVT records. Drummer Morgan Rose, with vocalist Lajon Witherspoon by his side, talked about the relationship with TVT.
"It's weird. You know, we start out, we do things our way. We do the first record, everybody embraces it. We do the second record, everybody embraces it. The third record we're like, 'OK, We're going to get somebody who's sonically in tune with everybody. We went and we did 'Angel's Son' for Lynn Strait for the Strait Up record, and the minute we did that we started to get the idea from the people at the label, 'You know, you should write more songs like that.' It's a beautiful song for a beautiful man and that's what it was done for. I think it did branch us in being able to write songs like 'Christmas Day' and 'Skeleton Song,' which was cool, but really what it really did was it gave them the avenue to start talking and opinionating (sic) giving their opinion on top of everything that we did."
