AVENGED SEVENFOLD: 'Nightmare' Artwork, Track Listing Unveiled

Southern California's AVENGED SEVENFOLD will release a special limited edition of its new album, "Nightmare", on July 27, the same day the band's fifth studio CD is due from Warner Bros. Records.

"Nightmare" was produced by Mike Elizondo (DR. DRE, EMINEM) and mixed by Andy Wallace (SEPULTURA, SLAYER, NIRVANA).

"Book of Nightmares" includes the full "Nightmare" album on CD, plus an expanded booklet featuring lyric sheets from the band and exclusive artwork — all packaged in a bound book with a silver-plated "Nightmare" crest. The package also includes a limited 24" x 36" lithograph entitled "Death Bat Anatomy" featuring original artwork on textured paper embossed, as well as an instant digital download of AVENGED SEVENFOLD's current single, "Nightmare".

"Book of Nightmares" is only for sale from the band's official web site, AvengedSevenfold.com, where it is currently available for pre-order for $49.99.

The album's first single and title track has enjoyed airplay at Active Rock, Mainstream, and Modern Rock radio stations across the country and was the No. 1 Rock Song on iTunes in the U.S. and the U.K. in its debut week. A lyric video of "Nightmare" that premiered via YouTube on the band's web site received more than 275,000 plays in 24 hours and has since racked up nearly 1.7 million views.

"Nightmare" track listing:

01. Nightmare

05. Natural Born Killer
06. So Far Away

In August, AVENGED SEVENFOLD will set out co-headlining the first annual Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival with DISTURBED. Also on the bill are STONE SOUR, HALESTORM, and HELLYEAH. The Uproar tour, which will hit amphitheatres and arenas, marks the band's first tour since the passing of beloved friend and drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan. Mike Portnoy from DREAM THEATER plays drums on Nightmare and will also tour with the band for Uproar.
