AVENGED SEVENFOLD’s M. Shadows has confirmed that the band’s next album will be released before next summer.
The AVENGED SEVENFOLD frontman addressed the how soon fans could expect the new album while appearing on “That Space Zebra Show”, hosted by Bobby Schubenski (Blackcraft founder), Wes Borland (LIMP BIZKIT) and Josh Balz (STRANGE KIDS, ex-MOTIONLESS IN WHITE).
Commenting on the band’s new material, M. Shadows said (as per Kerrang!): “The reason we don’t say much about the music is because we find that every single word we say about it just gets spun off, and there’s no way to describe music; it’s, like, ‘Oh, it’s heavy, it’s fast…’ What are we gonna say about it?’ It’s a work of art that we’ve worked on for a long time, we had a bunch of personal things that we’ll explain later… But we’re booking shows for next summer, and the record will be out before then.”
“The Stage” was released in October 2016 and sold less than half as many copies in its first week as the band’s two previous albums, 2010’s “Nightmare” and 2013’s “Hail To The King”.
