Fuse TV will air a "Making of the Album" special focusing on AVENGED SEVENFOLD's latest, self-titled CD on Monday, November 19 at 8:00 p.m. EST. Repeat broadcasts are scheduled for Wednesday, November 21 at 3:30 p.m. EST and Sunday, November 25 at 12:30 p.m. EST.AVENGED SEVENFOLD guitarist Zacky Vengeance has issued a statement on the band's No. 4 debut on this week's Billboard album chart. Writing at the group's official web site, Vengeance commented, "It's kind of funny to wake up and see the words AVENGED SEVENFOLD at the No. 4 spot on the Billboard top 200. Right next to THE EAGLES and a BRITNEY/CARRIE UNDERWOOD threesome. I don't know about you, but it puts a smirk on my face just knowing that our fans tattooed it right on the foreheads of everyone who would quickly disregard the name AVENGED SEVENFOLD (like we aren't a fucking force to be reckoned with). So once again thank you from the bottom of our hearts." Vengeance added, "I'll be honest with you: When I roll out of bed every morning my goal in life isn't to be alongside pop stars or actors and actresses or on the cover of the National Enquirer. It sure does feel good, though, to surprise all those people that don't even know what 'an A7X' is..." AVENGED SEVENFOLD's self-titled fourth album sold 94,000 copies in its first week of release, nearly three times what its 2005 effort, "City of Evil", sold in its biggest week on the chart. The group's current 30-date tour is slated to wrap up on December 16 in Seattle. AVENGED SEVENFOLD played a free concert at the Key Club in Hollywood, California on October 20. Fans were asked to come to the Key Club show dressed in a Halloween costume in order to get in. The show was taped and the song "Almost Easy" can be viewed below.
