Sevendust guitarist Clint Lowery will enter the studio this weekend to begin recording his first solo album. Producing the album is Michael “Elvis” Baskette, who has previously worked with Sevendust, Alter Bridge and Slash, and various others. The album is expected to release sometime in late 2019 via Rise Records. When he first announced plans to release a solo album he stated: “”In the past, I released a few things close to a solo release with Hello Demons… Meet Skeletons (mainly acoustic); Call Me No One, which I did with [Sevendust drummer] Morgan Rose. Both projects were truly amazing experiences and still want to entertain doing more Call Me No One and Hello Demons… Meet Skeletons in the future. But I’ve decided to release a project under my name that is gonna represent where I’m at musically right now. I feel the need to do this and stand on my own two feet and push myself to make some music that moves me. To express myself.” He also mentioned that the album would include some very special guests. One of which he named tonight via twitter.
A fan posed the question to Lowery “So who will play drums on your solo album,” to which Lowery replies “@WolfVanHalen will be playing drums, maybe some bass. I’ll do the rest. Just not good enough on the kit myself to pull it off in studio.” Of course Wolfgang Van Halen is the son of Eddie Van Halen and has been the bassist in Van Halen since replacing Michael Anthony in 2006. We can’t wait to see what other special guests Clint will bring on board to help with the solo album, but we think he will try to do as much of it himself as he can.
