AVENGED SEVENFOLD recently tapped famed video director Wayne Isham to helm the clip for the band's new single, "Nightmare".

Wayne Isham, 52, is an American movie director who has directed music videos of many popular artists such as METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, SIMPLE PLAN, PANTERA, 'N SYNC, SHANIA TWAIN, GODSMACK, BRITNEY SPEARS, LEONA LEWIS, PINK FLOYD, SHERYL CROW, JOSS STONE, MADONNA, AVRIL LAVIGNE, DEF LEPPARD and BON JOVI, among others.

"Nightmare" was the No. 1 most added track at Active Rock radio in the United States one week last month. It was also the No. 1 rock song on iTunes in the United States, selling over 23,666 units in its first day. Additionally, across the pond in the United Kingdom, "Nightmare" was the No. 1 rock song on iTunes. On the band's official web site, "Nightmare" premiered via a YouTube "lyric" Video that received over 275,000 plays in 24 hours.

"Nightmare" was produced by Mike Elizondo (DR. DRE, EMINEM) and mixed by noted engineer Andy Wallace (SLAYER, NIRVANA, DISTURBED, SEPULTURA).

Drums on the record were handled by Mike Portnoy of DREAM THEATER, who will also perform with the band on all its 2010 tour dates.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD drummer James "The Rev" Sullivan was found dead in his home on December 28, 2009 from causes that have not been released to the public.

"Nightmare" will follow up AVENGED SEVENFOLD's self-titled 2007 album, as well as its breakthrough 2005 disc, "City Of Evil", which featured the hit "Bat Country".

The band will co-headline this summer's Uproar Festival tour with DISTURBED, starting on August 17 in Minneapolis.
