Avenged Sevenfold To Begin Work On New Album This Fall

On June 21, Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Zacky Vengeance was interviewed by "Démentièllement Vôtre" on Québec City's CKRL 89.1 FM radio station, Blabbermouth.net reports. The chat can be streamed at this location. When asked about Avenged Sevenfold's plans for the remainder of the year after this past weekend's appearance at the Orion Music + More festival, Zacky said, "We've been home for awhile, just taking a little rest, and after these shows, we're gonna rest a little bit longer - just for the summer. We've never really had a summer to just be home and just unwind. But after that, as soon as summertime starts winding down, it's gonna be [time to start] getting together to start writing, working on new material. We're gonna be really excited to put out a new album. [We'll] just start the writing process. You never know how it's gonna go once you start, but hopefully we'll have some songs we're really, really proud of and get to work on recording them and get back out on the road again, hopefully sooner rather than later." "Démentièllement Vôtre" is a metal radio show on the oldest independant Francophone radio station in North America, CKRL 89.1 FM. The show has been airing since February 2003 and can be heard every Friday night from 10 p.m. to midnight. Avenged Sevenfold's gold-certified album "Nightmare" earned the band its highest-ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it bowed at No. 1 and topped Billboard's Rock, Hard Rock, and Digital charts. The title track was the most played song at Media Base Active Rock for 2010. Avenged Sevenfold's music video for the song "So Far Away" is described as a "raw and emotional" tribute to the band's late drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, who died in December 2009 from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs. The track itself, which appears on "Nightmare", is said in a press statement to be a "very personal goodbye" to Sullivan.

    Glad to see they'll be up and writing again, it's time for a new album. I wanna see what the new drummer brings to the table.

    I'm still waiting for your masterpiece of an album.

    Ya, singing melodies will always prove your not a real musician or songwriter.Are you insane,the harmonies ax7 play are probably way over your head.Go listen to Justin beiber because that's were you belong.

    Good news. I liked some of nightmare, but was not overall happy with it. Maybe this one will be better??

    Although I do not like Avenged Sevenfold I do like how they have got on with their lives after The Rev's death and released and worked on two albums since his death, compare this to Slipknot who have basically stopped all together after Paul's Death.

    Looking forward to this. I was happy with NIghtmare, and really like their older stuff too, but I'd like to see them continue to mature their songwriting a little bit. 'Tonight the world dies' was a great example of this, as was 'Save me', which IMO was the best song off Nightmare.

    I hope Arin Ilejay will become the band's new permanent drummer. )) Looking forward to see what will he bring to the band

    Fuckin' SWEET Nightmare was by far my favorite A7X album, but I'd like to see what they could come up without The REV's death being so heavy over their heads. Nightmare was basically their grieving record, but M. Shadows said the original goal for Nightmare was for it to be a concept album about young people living in the current state of crisis worldwide.

    When Nightmare came out, I really didn't care much for it. It's not that I really thought it was bad , I just didn't think it was that good. Fast forward a few months to a year, and it actually became my favorite Avenged Sevenfold album. Sure, it's got some bad songs on it (all of their albums do), but the good songs on it have really grown on me. I think it's their most mature album so far, both musically and lyrically. I'm really interested to see where they can go next, and hopefully, their new drummer will just do what he can do and not try too hard to prove himself.

    I'm going to be optimistic about this one. City of Evil was a great "guitar hero" record, the self titled was a good album from start to finish...but nightmare just didn't click with me. All my friends we're like "ITS SO AMAZING!!" and I was left going "ehhh, idk about that much. I'm ready for some new stuff though...i got my popcorn poppin'

    I hope it's more dynamic like the self titles album. That was a good listen. Maybe a song where he screams would be nice as well

    AX7 have lost their roots. "Sounding the Seventh Trumpet" was kinda meh, "Waking the Fallen" was actually a good album, everything else, meh.

    well it rly doesnt matter who they have on the drums cuz this band is one of the last remaining bands who actually kick some ass.....the follow up to "Nightmare" should be just as sick as "Nightmare" *crosses fingers*

Ive been wondering too, what Nightmare would have been like if things didnt happen the way that they did. Maybe this one will pick up where the ideas for the original Nighmare left off and we will actually get that concept album that they got us all worked up over
    it wouldnt have been much different, considering the rev still wrote the songs for that album before he died. the only difference is, portnoy recorded them. it would have just given their videos and stage show a little different feel.

    Glad to hear about a new record New drummer and a fresh start for the band. This should make for an interesting album. I'm sure The Rev is glad that they're still going strong.
