Sevendust’s Clint Lowery on The Quarantinecast #17
You’re quarantined, we’re quarantined, everyone’s quarantined, including all the metal musicians you love. In our new series, The MetalSucks Quarantinecast, we’re connecting with metal musicians in their homes to find out how they’re coping with isolation, how they’re staying busy during these trying times, and how the coronavirus pandemic has impacted their band’s plans.
Sevendust guitarist Clint Lowery joins us this week to speak openly and honestly about both the ongoing pandemic and the Black Lives Matter uprising in response to the murder of George Floyd. Clint talks about his unstoppable drive to create music as a coping mechanism, his surprise-released solo EP, how he’s enjoyed being able to spend more time at home with his family as a result of the lockdown, the economic realities of no touring in the near future and how he plans to survive, his support for the Black Lives Matter movement, whether he thinks Sevendust’s fortunes were ever affected by having a black member of the band, and a quick update on the next Sevendust album.
