Creed, Sevendust Said To Be Hammering Out Tour

After hitting it off while opening up for Metallica, Creed and Sevendust are said to be planning to launch a tour of their own in the coming weeks.

While it's not a done deal and no dates have been confirmed yet, a source close to Sevendust reports that the two hard rock outfits are currently hammering out a tour that would see them hit the road this spring.

A spokesperson for Creed was unaware of the band's tour plans, and Sevendust's record label, TVT Records, had no comment on that group's plans.

TVT did note that Sevendust will soon head to New York to shoot additional footage for its next video. The band will meet up with director Marcos Siega (Blink-182's "All The Small Things" and Quicksand's "Thorn In My Side") on January 21 to shoot additional footage for the video for "Waffle." As we previously reported, the band shot performance footage for the video at a recent show at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom (see "Sevendust

Turns Tour Finale Into Video Shoot").

After both acts rose from the south, Florida's Creed and Atlanta's Sevendust crossed paths in a high profile way when both played the infamous final day of Woodstock '99. The two then found themselves sharing backstage space yet again when Sevendust and Creed opened a handful of Metallica shows late last year (including a New Year's Eve shindig in Detroit).

Both acts also turn up on the upcoming soundtrack to "Scream 3," which Creed is executive producing. Sevendust contributes a new song called "Fall," while Creed offers two new tracks, "What If" and "Is This The End" (see "Godsmack, System Of A Down, Staind, Orgy, Others Sign On For 'Scream 3'").
