You don't have to change everything. However, realigning can be the healthiest remedy after nearly two decades in the music business. Going into their eleventh full-length album, Kill The Flaw, Sevendust changed a lot around them regarding the infrastructure of their organization, but they didn't alter what matters the most-the music. Following their first significant break (two months) since forming, the Atlanta group-Lajon Witherspoon [lead vocals], Clint lowery [lead guitar, backing vocals], John Connolly [rhythm guitar, backing vocals], Vince Hornsby [bass], and Morgan Rose [drums]-entered their new creative hub, Architekt Studios in Butler, New Jersey, completely inspired and invigorated. The first single and album opener "Thank You" upholds the pillars of their signature style with a buoyant guitar groove, bombastic drums, and soulfully striking refrain. "There's always someone trying to keep you down," sighs Lajon. "At the end of the day, that negativity makes you stronger. You're still going. It says, 'Thank you for putting me down. Thank you for making me work harder. Thank you for hating!'" Thankfully, they're still Sevendust through and through, and that's what forged one of hard rock's most diehard audiences.
