A veteran metal band is set to headline the Varsity Theatre in April. 

Sevendust will perform Wednesday, April 25 at the Baton Rouge venue at 3353 Highland Road. Doors open at 7 p.m. The show starts at 8 p.m. and also features Memphis May Fire, Fire from the Gods and Madame Mayhem. The show is for ages 18 and up. 

Tickets are now on sale for $28 online at ticketweb.com and will increase to $30 the day of the show. 

Sevendust is alternative metal band that started nearly 25 years ago in Atlanta, Georgia. The group is known for its mix of heavy guitar riffs and singer Lajon Witherspoon's angry yet melodic vocals.  

The band had commercial success in the late ’90s with albums such as "Home" and "Animosity," both of which were certified gold, selling more than 500,000 copies. Sevendust will release its 11th studio album, "All I See is War," on May 11.
