AVENGED SEVENFOLD Working On New Song For 'Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4'

According to AVENGED SEVENFOLD bassist Johnny Christ, the group is currently putting the finishing touches on a new song that will be released in July.

The track will apparently appear in the upcoming video game "Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4", which will be released via Activision on October 12. The band previously contributed music to the previous three installments of the game series, and even appears (virtually) in the second chapter, when they can be seen performing the song "Carry On" in an epilogue after the closing credits.

"The [new] song is written," Christ told Lou Brutus of HardDrive Radio during an interview at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio earlier this month. "We're recording it right now. We just took a break in the studio recording it this last week, and we're going to finish it up this coming week. Then it will go off to get mixed and mastered, and I believe some time in July is when everyone will be hearing it for the first time. We don't have a name for it yet. [Vocalist M. Shadows] is figuring out the lyrics. I think he just finished them before we came out here. It's a fun song — it's a little bit of a departure from I think what our fans would expect, but I guess that also makes sense because they expect crazy from us now."

The "Call Of Duty" song will be the first original material AVENGED SEVENFOLD has released since last year's "Dose", which originally surfaced in the Gameloft mobile game "Dungeon Hunter 5". It later appeared on the "deluxe edition" 2017 reissue of the group's 2016 studio album, "The Stage".

AVENGED SEVENFOLD will probably start working on its eighth studio LP this fall for a 2019 release. The band will tour North America this summer with PROPHETS OF RAGE and THREE DAYS GRACE.
