AVENGED SEVENFOLD frontman M. Shadows recently told MTV.com that the band plans to take its time writing the follow-up to 2005's "City of Evil". While the boys have been working on new material for a couple of months now, Shadows doesn't see the band hitting the studio until at least May. And when AVENGED do, the singer said they'll track the disc without the benefit of a seasoned producer. "We're 90 percent sure we're going to produce it ourselves," said Shadows, who recently helped produce THE CONFESSION's new LP. "We want to do it ourselves because we know what we want." He said fans can expect the album's tracks to be bigger and longer, and added that he hopes to have the disc out by the fall. An AVENGED SEVENFOLD DVD is also in the works, possibly for release this spring/summer.
