Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon on The MetalSucks Podcast #498


Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust is our guest this week! We are here to celebrate their 14th studio album Truth Killer coming out July 28. We also perspective that came after the pandemic, the Huntridge Theater in Las Vegas being a hub for heavy music in the late 90’s, how Sevendust feels about releasing new music to the fans, which songs he feel are the most difficult to revisit for him, touring to celebrate the anniversary of Animosity, and how revisiting past records are for him. We also cover which crooner he feels he would love to cover, what it was like releasing a new album during a pandemic, the livestream experience, and some advice on keeping a band together throughout all these years.

Petar and Brandon discuss Gary Holt’s comments on Slayer reuniting, the passing of Tony Bennett, and Jacob Shaddix’s comments on what bands will be replacing Metallica after they retire.
