Sevendust Begin Production on Concert Film and Documentary for 2015 DVD/CD Release
Sevendust are currently in the midst of their tour ‘An Evening With Sevendust‘ in support of their latest release ‘Time Travelers & Bonfires.” Now, the band has announced that the trek will be documented for a feature-length film that also contains historical footage, interviews, cameos and a plugged-in show.
The concert part of the documentary will be filmed in New York City. Sevendust will play an acoustic show followed by a plugged-in show. Fans will be able to buy tickets for both shows at one price, with more details released soon.
When it comes to the plugged-in show (their last of 2014), Sevendust plan plenty of pyrotechnics, video screens and special effects. “We’re going to bring on so much production, it will amaze people,” says drummer Morgan Rose. “We’re going to blow s–t up, we’re going to have fire, we’re going to have dragons, we’re going to have fire-breathing dragons. It may be the only time fans will ever get to see us this way!”
Guitarist Clint Lowery says, “The essence of this band is playing live and that’s what we’re finally documenting for this project. What’s unique about it is that it will share both sides of this band—the melodic and the aggressive—with our most die-hard fans. This film is a heartfelt way to show them, our children and the whole world who we were, who we became, where we are and where we’re going.”
Production on the documentary is already under way. Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge), Scott Phillips (Alter Bridge) and Wolfgang Van Halen are among the musicians that will make cameos. The release of the as-yet-untitled DVD/CD is planned for early 2015.
