“I think that Darrell would be really proud of all of his extended family, friends, fans, and musical brothers and sisters… The RIDE FOR DIME has embodied the spirit of Darrell by keeping his memory alive the way Dime would have wanted… with “Unity”,” states Dimebagz Hag Rita Haney. “The thing he loved the most was jumping up on someone’s stage for a killer jam session or welcoming anybody to his own stage with open arms. To see people from all over come together to celebrate him and his music is enough to warm my heart and I could never say thank you enough, but it’s even more incredible that the proceeds have gone to help so many different causes over the years. I hope that one day we can see the RFD chapters in all states and countries, even if you don’t ride, you can always come out for the jams and the good times. Always remember one word in the Dime community… “Unity”.”

“This year’s RIDE FOR DIME events have seen performances by Shadows Fall, Drowning Pool, God Forbid, Sevendust and countless local bands that we try to showcase and put some spotlight on to crowds that otherwise would not have heard them, all in the name and honor of our friend Dimebag Darrell,” adds Chad Lee, RFD Nashville Vice President and owner of


These days as schools throughout America are forced to close their Musical programs kids in uncounted numbers are missing their potential to become the talented musicians of our future. RIDE FOR DIME is a federally sanctioned 501 (C) 3 charity organization benefiting several different like minded causes in honor of the late great DIMEBAG DARRELL ABBOTT the former guitarist of the bands DAMAGEPLAN and PANTERA. Dime was the kind of person that was able to connect with millions of fans world wide with his kind heart and extraordinary musical abilities. Unfortunately hes was taken from us on December 8th 2004 in a senseless act of violence. Since then some of the people closest to him have created “RIDE FOR DIME” to raise money in his name and give back to the thing that enriched his short life so greatly…..Music. Little Kids Rock Foundation provides classrooms with the instruments and funding that it takes to keep their music programs alive, ultimately giving kids an outlet to showcase their talents. The Darrell Abbott Scholarship Fund helps deserving kids pursue their musical dreams and education.

The track is in rotation at several of today’s hottest stations, including new adds at WJJO and WRIF this week. You can view the new music video for ‘Farewell To Good Days’, on the band’s YouTube page. The video is also in current rotation on MTV and at The band’s previous single, ‘Hapless’, spent over 17 weeks within the Top 50 on the BDS New and Active Rock Chart.
The band will enter Groovmaster Studios in Chicago, IL in January with the Johnny K Camp to complete work on their debut full-length, self-titled album set to be unleashed on the world in April 2012 with Big Time Records.
“Before entering the recording studio in early 2012, we are extremely excited to announce that we will be hitting the road in support of Sevendust,” states bassist Anthony Lojeski. “We could not have asked for a better end to our touring cycle than to go out with a band that has heavily influenced us over the years, and that we have the utmost respect for. This is the kind of “high note” we want to be on going into the winter where we will be writing and recording for our first full length release since signing with Big Time Records. We have achieved much, been through and done a lot over the past year and are really looking forward to crafting an album that we are proud of and that truly represents what SEVEN DAY SONNET is all about.”
Refusing to slow down over the past year, SEVEN DAY SONNET has gone from playing back alley clubs to expanding practically overnight– touring with bands like Saliva, Sevendust, Rev Theory, Nonpoint and Adelitas Way and recording with Grammy Award-winning producer Sylvia Massy (Tool, System of a Down) and Grammy-nominated producer Johnny K.
