Sevendust has put together a 14-date acoustic tour to herald the release of its upcoming album, "Seasons." Kicking off Sept. 3 in Chicago, each stop will also include a listening party for the new set and a Q&A with band members. The fan deemed to have asked the best question at each venue will be invited to sit on stage with the hard rock act during the performance segment.

"It's very intimate," frontman Lajon Witherspoon says in a statement. "And it will show a side of Sevendust that people have never seen before."

Shows in Chicago, Detroit (Sept. 4), Minneapolis (Sept. 6), Sauget, Ill. (Sept. 7), Milwaukee (Sept. 8), Tallahassee, Fla. (Sept. 10), Providence, R.I. (Sept. 19) and Rochester, N.Y. (Sept. 20) will be all ages affairs. A larger U.S. trek with Staind will open about a week after the acoustic tour closes.

As previously reported, "Seasons" is due Oct. 7 via TVT. The 12-track album was produced by Butch Walker (Marvelous 3, Injected) and features the single "Enemy."
