Next is the fifth studio album by alternative metal band Sevendust, released a little over two years after their previous album, Seasons.

This is the first album by Sevendust with guitarist Sonny Mayo, who replaced Clint Lowery in December 2004. This is also the first and only album release through Winedark Records. The band was able to make its own imprint, 7Bros. Records, which, along with the band, gained freedom from Winedark Records in April 2006.

The album was self-produced and made while the band had no record label, so they had to use their own money to fund it.[citation needed]

The first official single, "Ugly", had a fair amount of radio play and was accompanied by a music video. "Failure" was released as the second single, followed by "Pieces", which was released as the third official single.

Morgan Rose said that he rushed the writing of Next because of rumours of Sevendust ending. He felt that since Clint Lowery was important he needed to pick up the slack for Sevendust.[citation needed]
