AVENGED SEVENFOLD Drummer Interviewed At Portugal's SUPER BOCK SUPER ROCK; Video Available

Portugal's Hardsound TV conducted an interview with AVENGED SEVENFOLD drummer The Rev (a.k.a. James Owen Sullivan) at the Super Bock Super Rock festival on July 9, 2008 in Lisbon, Portugal. The clip, which includes footage of the band's performance at the festival, can be viewed below.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD will embark on a fall headlining tour beginning September 9 and co-headlining trek with BUCKCHERRY kicking off in mid-September. AVENGED SEVENFOLD and BUCKCHERRY will alternate as headliners, with SHINEDOWN and SAVING ABEL filling out the bill.

On September 9, AVENGED SEVENFOLD will release a DVD/CD package, entitled "Live in the LBC & Diamonds in the Rough". The live DVD features the band's April 10 hometown show at the Long Beach Arena headlining the Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour, while the CD contains previously unreleased b-sides that were recorded during the making of "Avenged Sevenfold", plus various covers, and other never-before-heard material. The DVD was directed by Core Entertainment's Rafa Alcantara, who also worked on the band's critically acclaimed 2007 road documentary "All Excess".

AVENGED SEVENFOLD has raised hell on the fourth annual Rockstar Taste of Chaos massively successful arena tour and is currently in the middle of a European tour with rock legends IRON MAIDEN. The band is touring behind its latest self-produced, self-titled album, which topped the Billboard Alternative, Hard, and Rock charts the week after its release. The follow-up to 2005's million-selling "City of Evil", "Avenged Sevenfold" also debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200, marking the biggest sales week ever for the quintet. The album's first single, "Almost Easy", was a Top 10 hit at Active Rock, went Top 20 at Alternative, and was the No. 1 most played video on Fuse.
