Avenged Sevenfold will release its new single, the title track of the band's sixth studio album, "Hail to the King," on Monday, July 15, Blabbermouth reports.
The full-length CD will be made available on August 27. A 30-second audio sample of the album's title track was revealed earlier this week.
Asked what fans can expect from the follow-up to 2010's "Nightmare," the band guitarist Synyster Gates told Revolver magazine: "I think our songwriting has improved by leaps and bounds. Sonically, this record is our biggest record by f--king far. When you turn this f--king thing on, it blasts your f--king head off."
The new disc was once again produced by Mike Elizondo and is the first to be wholly written without drummer and key songwriter James "The Rev" Sullivan, who died in December 2009. Sullivan has since been replaced by Arin Ilejay, a former member of Confide.
