INTERVIEW: Lajon Witherspoon (SEVENDUST)
Originally set to hit our shores within days alongside lords of metal debauchery Steel Panther, alt metal legends Sevendust are instead busily biding their time before they can bring their ballistic live show back to our shores safely in 2021. Last seen gracing our stages just last year to celebrate their most recent release All I See is War, Sevendust well and truly raised the roof and potentially stripped the paint off venue walls all over the country as they blasted their ferocious sonic wares (and hemorrhaged more drum sticks than a Friday night at KFC) while proving yet again why they are one of the most in-demand live acts in the heavy world.
With decades under their belts and barely any alteration to their iconic lineup since the mid 90s, Sevendust have remained a rare consistent force in a swiftly changing and cutthroat industry; a consistency which permeates both their hulking brand of rock as well as their reputation as being some of the nicest guys in town. And while the world quietly awaits a return to some form of normality amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Sevendust sure as hell aren't sitting idle, as frontman Lajon Witherspoon (aka LJ) shares with Tiana Speter today, revealing his Aussie aspirations, wearing a wig for Steel Panther and a sneak peek into some new music news. Grab a listen below!
