Avenged Sevenfold: 'Everyone in US Thinks Rock Is Dead'
Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Synyster Gates recently discussed the weak state of rock music in the US and the overall lack of support guitar-heavy bands are getting.

Chatting with Revolver at this year's Rock on the Range, Syn named the event as one of a few prestigious rock festivals in the US.

"Overseas, they have tons of these things," the axeman noted. "It's crazy, 'cause everybody's like, 'Rock's dead' in America and all that crazy crap."

However, Gates remained optimistic throughout the chat, sharing a great deal of excitement for getting to share the stage with the iconic Slayer. The guitarist also praised Guns N' Roses, calling them one of the group's "favorite bands in the world, cause we rip them off all the time."

A7X are currently busy on the road promoting their latest studio effort "Hail to the King." The chart-topping album saw its release in August 2013, while the band's current tour is stretching through mid-August, taking A7X across US and Japan. More details and ticket info here.
