Avenged Sevenfold (vocalist M. Shadows, guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, bassist Johnny Christ and drummer Brooks Wackerman) 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.
They’ve proved themselves again and again to be one of the genre’s most forward-thinking artists, reinforced by critically acclaimed new album THE STAGE (Capitol), which was praised by Rolling Stone for being “epic and adventurous” and “the most aggressively bonkers music of the quintet’s career.” NME, Q, The Guardian, Guitar World, Metal Hammer and Classic Rock all lauded the album, with the latter calling it “a metal masterpiece.
The band amplified the album with a spectacular new live show that critics and fans alike hailed as brutally entertaining. After two recent nights at London’s 02 Arena, the London Evening Standard lauded Avenged Sevenfold as “a global phenomenon” and wrote that the band “specialized in preposterous fun,” calling the show “royally entertaining.” The Guardian ran a 4-star review of the show in Glasgow, writing, “Underneath retina-scorching screens and giant cosmic cube broadcasting spiraling starfields, the five-piece methodically discharge booming, arena-filling songs…these industrial assemblages of growing riffs and fret-melting solos have a default minor-key menace, yet the overall atmosphere is surprisingly joyous.” But Kerrang! best summed up Avenged Sevenfold’s new live show: “you’ve never seen anything like it.” That acclaimed Stage spectacle is what the band is bringing to North America at the top of the year.
