Seven the Hardway is a 5-piece progressive rock/metal band based in Southern California and formed in 2009 by guitar virtuoso Tony MacAlpine (Steve Vai, Planet X, CAB), drum master Virgil Donati (Planet X) and renowned vocalist Mark Boals (Uli Jon Roth, Royal Hunt, Yngwie Malmsteen).

The band’s highly anticipated 10-track eponymous debut will be released in September 2010 on Mascot/Provogue Records, and their fall European tour kicks off soon after the album’s release.

The band’s live show will consist of their entire album, a jaw-dropping drum solo from Donati, along with select covers of Tony MacAlpine’s well-known instrumentals.

Joining MacAlpine, Donati and Boals on the album are bass player Doug Shreeve and Argentinian newcomer Estefania Daniel on guitar.

A music video for the band’s first single “Guilty” (music and lyrics by Virgil) will premiere on YouTube in June.

Here are some pics from taken at the video shoot in North Hollywood California on May 8 2010.
