SEVENDUST has completed the writing sessions for its next studio album at a Kentucky farmhouse close to lead singer Lajon Witherspoon‘s home.

The Atlanta hard rockers will enter the studio in early July to begin recording the follow-up to 2020’s “Blood & Stone” for a potential 2023 release.

On Friday (June 24), SEVENDUST drummer Morgan Rose shared a photo to Instagram, writing the accompanying message: “I put this band together in 94(I think?). By 96 we had a deal and started touring RELENTLESSLY!!! Honestly? I don’t even know how many records we’ve put out, off the top of my head. But the process has been different on most of them. Some fun, some stressful, some aggravating?

“I can say with not 1 bit of doubt, that this trip was my favorite of our career. Just 5 guys in a farm house, creating. Telling each other how much we love each other, supporting each other, enjoying being together. No outsiders, no drama, no bullshit. Just us.

“I realized we haven’t been ‘totally’ alone in this process since probably the first record. I think we all needed this trip more than we even knew. When you spend most of the last 26 years with the same people, you sometimes forget how much you care about them. This was a nice realization for us. The songs are magical, the vibe of the record is magical, our relationship with each other is magical.

“Thank you @ljspoon and @ashleymwitherspoon , for providing the most amazing backdrop, for us to write. Ash, you went far and beyond in helping us. Thank you. Jada and Kingston, I love you both so much. Thank you for coming by every day to just let us hug you both, and giving us a break from the mind melt. And to my boys Lj, @clintloweryofficial , @jmc7d and @thevinniehornsby I just fucking love you guys so much.

“This is a special record. And yes the photo is missing the legend. Because he’s taking the photo. #sevendust2023”.

Lajon Witherspoon also shared a few pictures from the sessions, writing: “What a great writing section with the fam a very special spot out here needed time together @sevendustofficial love my brothers. Thanks so much @ashleymwitherspoon for coming down bringing food & the kids. Can’t wait for y’all to here what we got Cooking”.

SEVENDUST guitarist Clint Lowery also commented: “@ashleymwitherspoon @ljspoon best host ever. You made that the best writing experience of our career. Thanks for EVERYTHING”.

SEVENDUST recently wrapped up two legs of its tour celebrating the 21st anniversary of its “Animosity” album.
