Sevendust Announce New Album, Tour Dates - But No Chicago

Sevendust have announced a release date of April 20th for their eighth studio album, Cold Day Memory. The album finds the band reformed with its original lineup, after a three album absence for original guitarist Clint Lowery. The band also announced a string of tour dates with Drowning Pool, starting tomorrow night in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We will list them out below, but you will notice the lack of a Chicago date.

The band is not quite in our wheelhouse here, but we are posting the story as evidence of the poor reputation Chicago has as a live music destination. We are the third largest market in the country, but the stain of sold-out cover band shows at House Of Blues and half-empty venues for original bands leaves too many bands wondering whether a trip through Chicago is worth it. Consider this a warning - start supporting the live music scene, or risk your favorite band skipping Chicago on their tour.

Cold Day Memory track listing:
1. Splinter
2. Forever
3. Unraveling
4. Last Breath
5. Karma
6. Ride Insane
7. Confessions
8. Nowhere
9. Here and Now
10. The End Is Coming
11. Better Place
12. Strong Arm Broken
