Sevendust recently completed writing their 14th studio release due out sometime in 2023, and it might be one of their last. Sevendust drummer Morgan Rose said in a recent interview that band is going to record the new album this year, do a tour sometime in 2023, and then might become a part-time band. "We're not gonna tour the new record until next year at some point," he said. "There's not gonna be many left, I'll just tell you that. I'm gonna be the one to let all the cats out of the bag, but I can just tell you that we're not gonna be around, full-fledged, forever, that's for sure."
Rose was then asked if the band is planning on doing a massive, Slayer-type farewell tour that'll go on for years. He notes that there will probably be something to that effect, and that the band has discussed their "end date."
"There probably will be something like that. The funny thing is Slayer is a legendary… They're Slayer, you know. But regardless, relatively speaking, we have such close relationships. I started thinking about it. I mean, we did discuss this — the band has discussed, like, when's the end date? 'Cause it'd be nice to do it on our own terms and it'd be nice to be able to say goodbye to everybody properly.
"And I got emotional when we were talking about it, 'cause I was, like, there are so many people that we're friends and really consider very close that I don't hang out with. You have these, for sure — people that you've met on the road that you see 'em wherever it might be and you've seen 'em so many times that you know them absolutely by name and maybe you even have a drink or food or something when you go through town, but you don't hang with them other than that.
"And we've been [touring for] 26 years, and there's a lot of those people. And it's, like, shit, dude — that's gonna be, like, 'Bye.' We don't talk. We only talk when I come here. And we've been talking, for some of these people, for 25 years. And it's, like, damn. There's a lot of those people. And it fucked me up a little bit. I was, like, that's gonna be interesting to wave the stage that night and be, like, 'Damn,' and fuck off forever. 'Cause it obviously has been a gigantic part of our lives — more than half of it has been spent out on the road building those relationships. So it'll be a trip."
