But that's not all, embodied here are rare clips forever on display such as the unique Orlando question and answer event on the eve of the release of the record Alpha, the New Years Eve video of "The Rim," and as a special bonus, a comical episode of "Pete the A&R Guy" and what he has to say about the state of the Dust. This DVD and companion CD pack includes new audio tracks, "Losing You" and "Sleeper," making this keepsake packaging a must for every Sevendust fan.

The March 2007 release of Alpha, the bands sixth studio album and first on 7Bros. Records, saw Sevendust equal their highest Billboard album ranking of their career with a first week debut at #14 on The Top 200 selling 42,398 copies. The press heralded Alpha as a return to form for the band as the Associated Press raved "Sevendust has been reborn on Alpha" and Guitar World gloated that "Sevendust go for the jugular, creating vicious thrash-based songs that surge and sway as they pummel." Revolver ran a 5 page retrospective feature on the band, saying "With the punishing Alpha, Sevendust hope to recapture the fury- and flavor- of their prime." Alpha also saw Sevendust re-appear on the Active Rock radio charts as "Driven" was a top 10 smash.
In celebration of the success of Alpha, Sevendust announces the official release of Alpha outside of the US and Canada, Monday November 12, 2007. The offering will contain the original 12 tracks plus the bonus track "The Rim" along with a brand new studio track entitled, "Abuse Me."
