Sevendust Comes Out Swinging With ‘Fence’

Fences are put in place to denote where a property ends; a marker if you will. It could also be done as a safety measure to protect the owners of that particular area. But if you look at it closely, this common item in our community can transform into something sinister altogether. Most especially when it is used as a device to keep the people within from escaping I.e in camps, bases etc. With barb wires, electric shocks, and armed guards in every corner, all of a sudden it’s not that innocent anymore.

That same air of darkness lives on in legendary rock band Sevendust and their latest song ‘Fence’. Released April 18th in all major streaming platforms via Napalm Records Handels GmbH as part of their album ‘Truth Killer’. ‘Fence’ is a hard hitting rock track that sets us in the shoes of prisoners living within a powerful fence. A rallying cry, it aims to open our eyes to the things that bind us and fight back. Easier said then done, Sevendust eggs us on to make the move even if the situation seems bleak. “How long will it take ‘til it’s over? How long ‘til you take everything from me?” as the lyrics would say.

With a voice so iconic and strong, laced in instrumentals that hit harder than a million baseball bats. Sevendust’s ‘Fence’ is a Molotov cocktail that fires up the senses and emotions. I transcends the level of just being a musical piece and into the realm of activism. “When do we know how long we can break it? Where do we go to have some? Will we see it again? We have been waiting.”. It’s undeniable in every sense of the word, and that’s a good thing- a very good thing.
