Sevendust Latest Victims of Ghost’s Mad Foosball Skills

Sevendust are the latest band to lose a game of foosball to the mysterious ghouls in Ghost. Like previous losers Trivium, Whitechapel, and Chimaira, Sevendust will now be forced to open for Asking Alexandria as penance for their loss — but worse even still, other bands on the tour will include All That Remains, For Today, and Emmure.

“They went double-or-nothing,” an inside source close to 7D told MetalSucks, speaking only on condition of anonymity. “Morgan [Rose, drums] has made the band practice for five hours a day six days a week for the past month preparing for this. He really thought he had them licked. But those dudes in Ghost are just sick foosballers. They have a playboook and everything!”

The band has now retreated to their rehearsal studio to prepare for their month of hell. “They’re picking a setlist with maximum amount of rapping, and Lajon [Witherspoon, vocals] has hired a new vocal coach to un-teach him everything he knows about singing so he’ll appeal to all the Phil Labonte fans,” our source says. “It’s the damndest thing, hearing him trying to sing off-key.”

Meanwhile, Ghost’s latest victory may provide some new clues as to the band members’ true identities, asserts our source: “The rumor going around now is that they’re actually Asking Alexandria’s booking agents. That’s why all their music sounds retro — they’re just recycling old riffs because music isn’t their primary concern. They’re the best scam artists in the world.”
