Avenged Sevenfold

AVENGED SEVENFOLD became one of the world’s biggest rock bands by creating a sound that broke through obstacles of language, distance and culture. They raised the stakes and standards for the genre with a string of blockbuster albums, including their 2005 platinum-selling breakthrough, City Of Evil, 2007’s platinum-selling Avenged Sevenfold and two consecutive No. 1’s on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart: 2010’s Nightmare and 2013’s Hail To The King. They’ve achieved Diamond, Platinum and Gold awards for album sales in nearly a dozen countries, racked up over a billion video views and a billion-plus Spotify streams, have consistently been one of the most-played bands on rock radio for over a decade with multiple No. 1 singles, and have headlined arenas and the biggest rock festivals around the globe, amassing a diehard international fan base whose members number in the millions.

Their latest release is The Stage, which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock, Hard Rock and Alternative Albums charts. The critically acclaimed album was praised by Rolling Stone as “the most aggressively bonkers music of the quintet’s career” and drew praise from a plethora of outlets, among them Rolling StoneNMEQThe GuardianGuitar WorldMetal HammerRevolverLoudwire, Metal InjectionAlternative PressDrumTotal Guitar and Classic Rock, with the latter calling it “a metal masterpiece”. Co-produced by the band and Joe Barresi, the album is a work of immense scope and ambition with panoramic tracks tied together by an Artificial Intelligence theme. Inspired by the writings of Carl Sagan and Elon Musk, the album is the band’s first thematic release and its epic 15-minute-plus closing track, “Exist,” features a guest appearance by award-winning astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson giving a spoken word performance he penned specifically for the album. Earlier this year the band were nominated for a GRAMMY for the title track of the album.
