AVENGED SEVENFOLD debuted a new song and video online two weeks ago called "The Stage". At the time, the California band's seventh studio album was rumored to be called "Voltaic Oceans".
The band launched its campaign for the new album — it first for Capitol Records — with projections or pictures of the band's mascot, the Deathbat, in cities around the world.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD opened for METALLICA in Minneapolis in August and completed a string of headlining and festival dates earlier this fall.
The band's seventh studio album will be its first with new drummer Brooks Wackerman following the dismissal of Arin Ilejay in 2015.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD's previous two releases, 2013's "Hail To The King" and 2010's "Nightmare", both topped the Billboard album chart.
