AVENGED SEVENFOLD recently sat down with Steven on Fuse TV's "The Sauce" to talk about producing their latest record and more. Watch the interview below.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD is making a previously unreleased track called "Crossroads" available for downloading to fans who bought the CD/MVI version of the band's self-titled fourth album. The song is one of 20 that the group recorded before whittling down the CD's final track list to 10. Singer M. Shadows told The Pulse of Radio that all the music the band wrote reflects its diversity. "The groundwork we've been setting for AVENGED SEVENFOLD hasn't been 'here's our sound,' it's been 'we don't have a sound, we're always gonna keep changing.' But you're always gonna know when we write something 'cause we kinda, you know, everyone kinda tends to go to the melodies that they like and that's what you like a band, 'cause you're like, 'I like what they do, that feels very AVENGED SEVENFOLD,' you know. It doesn't matter if it's a country song or more hip-hop influenced or whatever it is, it's gonna feel like AVENGED SEVENFOLD 'cause we wrote it and it came from our hearts."
Fans who bought and registered the MVI version of the disc can now enter the group's Fan Access Network (F.A.N.), a free fan club offering pre-sale tickets, never-before-seen videos and exclusive music like "Crossroads".
The band will issue more exclusive content through the F.A.N. later in the year.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD's new album has sold 282,000 copies in the United States since coming out last October, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It features the single "Almost Easy".
The band will next headline the 2008 Taste of Chaos tour, beginning on February 29 in Denver and also featuring ATREYU and BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE.
