Hard rock mainstays Sevendust will release their third album, "Animosity," Nov. 13 via TVT. Produced by Ben Grosse (Filter, Fuel), the set will feature first single "Praise," as well as a guest spot by Staind's Aaron Lewis on the track "Follow." The album is the follow-up to 1999's "Home," which debuted at No. 19 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 557,000 copies in the U.S. to date, according to SoundScan.
A video for "Praise" will be shot in the coming weeks, with an as-yet-to-be confirmed director. "Animosity" will also feature a new version of the song "Angel's Son," which originally appeared on last year's "Strait Up" tribute to late Snot vocalist Lynn Strait. In the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, U.S. radio stations were inundated with so many requests for the track that the new rendition, featuring strings, was quickly made available for airplay.
In support of the new set, Sevendust is playing U.S. headlining dates through Oct. 21. The group then joins Fuel and Nonpoint for a tour that begins Nov. 10 at the County Coliseum in El Paso, Texas..
