AVENGED SEVENFOLD's M. SHADOWS Recalls Best Part Of Summer Festivals

AVENGED SEVENFOLD and KORN just kicked off the latest edition of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and The Pulse Of Radio asked AVENGED singer M. Shadows what he remembered best about the band's early stints on summer festivals like Ozzfest and Warped Tour. "It's so irresponsible, but all we wanted to do was get there and drink, and we wanted to go party with all the bands, and watch our favorite bands that were playing," he said. "Like Warped Tour, all we wanted to do was get there and drink and have fun, you know, and like playing was such an afterthought. [laughs] It really is all about the camaraderie. You know, the barbecue days and the music out there and just sittin' out there and just having a good time with all the bands. That's really the best part of it."

Other acts on the bill include ASKING ALEXANDRIA, SUICIDE SILENCE, TRIVIUM, MISS MAY I and more.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD will reissue its breakthrough second album, "Waking The Fallen", in a new special edition on August 26 that will include 11 never-before-heard songs, a 30-minute documentary and more.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD's sixth and latest album, "Hail To The King", came out last year and was the band's second straight CD to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard chart, following 2010's "Nightmare".

AVENGED SEVENFOLD has released the animated series based around "Hail To The King". The six-episode series is available on Machimina's HappyHour channel on YouTube and also serves as a prologue and back story for the group's mobile game, "Hail To The King: Deathbat", which will debut later in the year.
