It feels like yesterday when Avenged Sevenfold suddenly released The Stage but, it’s actually been out for over a year now. Frontman, M. Shadows had a chat with Billboard and discussed the early stages of a new album. No songs have been written yet but, there have been a lot of ideas and influences being thrown around.
“We’re really excited where our head space is. Just musically we feel like we want to express ourselves with an album and maybe not go drag [“The Stage“] out too much longer. There’s no new songs. We’ll probably talk for a couple months before we even start writing. There’s just so many cool new influences and all these new things we’ve been talking about, sparking us to think about different things outside of the box. I’m sure we’ll throw those ideas around. I already know it’s going to be different and cool, and that’s just exciting for me.”
Maybe by late 2018, they’ll have some songs finished and be ready to hit the studio? Until then, enjoy these two live tracks from their new acoustic live album Live At The Grammy Museum.
