AVENGED SEVENFOLD Confirm Summer Headline Shows

In addition to announcing a stadium summer jaunt with METALLICA, AVENGED SEVENFOLD have confirmed plans for a series of special headline shows that begin April 22nd in Las Vegas, NV. The dates will be interspersed with the METALLICA tour and include VOLBEAT and A DAY TO REMEMBER (each at different shows). The dates kick off at Las Rageous, where AVENGED SEVENFOLD will top the bill which features other acts such as MASTODON and EAGLES OF DEATH METAL (full itinerary below).

Members of Deathbat Nation, the band’s new—and first official—fan club will get first crack at tickets via an exclusive 24-hour pre-sale window that begins today (March 14th).

In October of last year, AVENGED SEVENFOLD played a groundbreaking live 360 Virtual Reality gig on the roof of Capitol Records in LA after which they surprised fans with the announcement that their new album The Stage – their first for Capitol Records - would be available that night. Previously they had made headlines with the release of the title track, co-produced by the band and Joe Barresi (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, TOOL) and a companion video directed by Chris Hopewell (RADIOHEAD, THE KILLERS). The latter has already amassed well over 12 million YouTube views.

The Stage is a work of immense scope and ambition, featuring 11 panoramic tracks tied together by an Artificial Intelligence theme. Inspired by the writings of Carl Sagan and Elon Musk, the album is the band’s first thematic release. While the term “AI” conjures up images of robots and fantasy films, the band steers clear of a science fiction storyline. Instead, the album sees them taking a futurist’s look at the accelerated rate at which technology’s intelligence is expanding and what that means—good and bad—for the future.

The album’s epic 15-minute-plus closing track, “Exist”, features a guest appearance by award-winning astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson giving a spoken word performance he penned specifically for the album.
