Interview with Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust
It’s not often you can get to hear an acoustic performance from one of the best rock bands of our generation. With that said, fans can enjoy “An Evening With Sevendust” acoustic tour on Friday, April 4 at Scout Bar in Houston at 7 p.m. The band also announced the acoustic show will play Beaumont on Thursday, June 19 at The Gig on Crockett Street. Tickets are $24 and can be purchased at thegigbeaumont.com.
The band is touring in support of the all-new acoustic record Time Travelers & Bonfires,which is set for an April 15 release. It’s a collection of brand new material plus six classics that the Sevendust fans chose to be on the album.
Sevendust partnered with PledgeMusic for direct-to-fan campaign to help fund the creation of Time Travelers & Bonfires, which was set to last for 130 days. But over the course of the first weekend, the goal was reached and raised more than 220 percent of their goal with more than 3,400 pledges.
I caught up with lead vocalist Lajon Witherspoon about the new acoustic album, tour and the overwhelming support from the Sevendust family.
Tickets for the all ages show in Houston are $26 and can be purchased at the venue or online at scoutbar.com.
