Sevendust’s Acoustic Album Debuts at #1 on “Top Hard Music Albums” Chart

Sevendust wanted to make an acoustic studio album, solely because their family of fans has been clamoring for one since the release of 2004’s Southside Double-wide live acoustic album.

They gave their fans exactly what they asked for, and in turn produced one of their most acclaimed albums to date.

And now, their family of fans has launched the album into the #1 slot on Billboard’s “Top Hard Music Albums” chart next week.

The album premiered on AcousticNation.com, and you can take a listen here.

Time Travelers & Bonfires-released April 15 on the band’s 7Bros. Records in conjunction with ADA Label Services-is the Atlanta band’s second consecutive #1 album.

The band’s current headlining acoustic U.S. tour, “An Evening With Sevendust,” launched April 1 in Athens, GA and isn’t stopping anytime soon.
