It was only four days ago that Avenged Sevenfold finally stopped yanking our chains and released a new song with a surprisingly political video. “The Stage” was meant for the stage perhaps, and that’s why just a few days later, at Knotfest Mexico, the band gave the song it’s live debut. A7X are pros, so even though it’s their first time playing it, it came off great. Get used to it. At 8:30, it’s likely to be a big part of their set for the next album cycle or two. Scroll down, since after the fan-shot video, there’s also a few Instagrams from the band of them preparing to play and then actually playing it.
