AVENGED SEVENFOLD Could Start Next Album In Late 2018

AVENGED SEVENFOLD Could Start Next Album In Late 2018

According to The Pulse Of Radio, AVENGED SEVENFOLD frontman M. Shadows has said in a new interview with Billboard that the band is already looking ahead to making its eighth studio album, although he cautioned that it's very early in the process. "There's no new songs," he said. "We'll probably talk for a couple months before we even start writing. There's just so many cool new influences and even just the idea of sparking us to think of different things outside of the box, I just know it's going to be different and cool. A lot of times it's just hard to find inspiration, but once you find inspiration, it's usually a lot easier process."

AVENGED SEVENFOLD has just released an acoustic album, "Live At The Grammy Museum". The performance was recorded on October 19 at the Clive Davis Theater in Los Angeles. A portion of the proceeds from the digital-only release will benefit the education initiatives of the Grammy Museum, which seek to inspire youth via the enduring qualities and cultural significance of music.

The band will release a deluxe edition of "The Stage" on December 22. The new version will feature seven additional studio songs plus four previously unreleased live tracks recorded during recent shows at the O2 Arena in London.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD recently confirmed the details of an early 2018 North American headlining tour with BREAKING BENJAMIN and BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE. The trek will begin on January 12 in Nashville, with shows booked so far through February 11 in Fargo, North Dakota.

Shadows also hinted at the group going out on a "really big summer tour" next year, although he did not provide any more details. He suggested that AVENGED could enter the studio after that trek concludes.
