Sevendust have titled their upcoming album 'Black Out the Sun,' according to a recent interview with guitarist Clint Lowery. The band's upcoming ninth studio album is tentatively slated to drop in April 2013.

'Black Out the Sun' was recorded with engineer Mike Ferretti at Architekt Studios in New Jersey.

In an interview with Source of the Sound With Wendy Campbell, guitarist Clint Lowery talked about the upcoming record by saying, "It's a lot of what we do — it's heavy and it's got its melodic element in it."

He goes on to say "So if you're a Sevendust fan, it's more along the lines of the second and third records we did — it's kind of like that. It's got a couple of throwback vibes to it. 'Animosity' and 'Home,' if I can put those two records together, it would [sound similar to the new CD]."

In the same interview, Lowery also stated that the band was in talks of a possible trek with Coal Chamber and Lacuna Coil in early 2013.

In Loudwire's interview with drummer Morgan Rose, he talked about the upcoming disc by saying "I know I’m gonna scream like a banshee on the next record, I don’t know how many more we got left in us – from now on it’s gotta be treated like it’s the last one in my book. I know it’s gonna be real heavy."

'Black Out the Sun' will be the band's follow-up to their 2010 album 'Chapter VII: Hope and Sorrow.' Sevendust will be playing Shiprocked 2012 along with Godsmack, KornFinger Death Punch and more.

While recording, Sevendust invited Anthrax frontman Joey Belladonna to hear a piece of some new material. Click below to check out Belladonna’s reaction to Sevendust’s new music.
