It had been a fair while since Sevendust had last performed on UK soil – seven years, in fact – something that the band members attributed to bad luck whilst on the search for new management. 

But, thankfully, despite the bumps in the road (and, in more recent times, having had to cancel tour dates), the Atlanta Georgia alt-metallers met with some good luck too… They would eventually sign up with the company who represent Alter Bridge and Mark Tremonti, inking a new deal with Rise Records for their twelfth full-length album All I See Is War, as well as landing a highly prestigious Grammy nomination on their prior album Kill The Flaw.
