AVENGED SEVENFOLD's recent studio session at the BBC can be streamed using the widget below.The band visited BBC Radio 1's "Rock Show With Daniel P. Carter" over the weekend and performed the songs "Hail To The King", "God Damn", "Nightmare" and "The Stage" at the Maida Vale studio in London, England. AVENGED SEVENFOLD will join METALLICA for the latter's "WorldWired" 2017 North American tour. Produced by Live Nation, the summer's hottest ticket kicks off May 10 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland with openers VOLBEAT. AVENGED SEVENFOLD is touring in support of its seventh album, "The Stage", which was given a surprise release at the end of October with almost no promotion beforehand. The band filmed a music video last month in the Los Angeles area for the song "God Damn" from the new disc. "The Stage" debuted at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 album chart back in November following its surprise release. Co-produced by the band and Joe Barresi, the disc features eleven 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. AVENGED SEVENFOLD is currently on a European tour with DISTURBED and CHEVELLE and will play Esch Sur Alzette, Luxembourg tonight (Wednesday, March 1).
