After 7 years of being the number one source for Avenged Sevenfold news we are sad to let you know that the owner of Deathbatnews.com has decided to move on and no longer update the website. The person responsible for the website has never revealed her identity so we won't do that here, but we truly want to thank her for her dedication and hard work over the years. In a world where websites and media make a living off of "click bait", stirring the pot and misleading headlines, Deathbatnews was always run with facts and integrity. In the end, this played a big role in her deciding to close the site down. This website will be sorely missed as it was the number one source for band members and crew to become aware of news that we didn't know about. "Deathbat Lady", we will miss you and thank you for your years of dedication.
We've just announced a new Speed Run contest with Scuf Gaming. Post videos of yourself beating the "Nightmare" level of Hail to the King: Deathbat, using only the "Rusty Blade" with the hashtag #dbspeedrun. The fastest times will win cool prizes. For more info go here: http://bit.ly/1voUOlI

WINNERS: Make sure to keep an eye on your YouTube/Soundcloud inboxes for a message about collecting your prizes.
As most of you know we have decided to take some time off after a year straight of touring. We finished up Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and after a brief stint in Japan we wanted to shut it down for a while. There was only one problem, some of our most passionate fans in the world reside in South East Asia and we never made it over to them on this tour. In fact Indonesia hasn't seen A7X in action in about 5 years. So we owe it to all of our friends in that part of the world to come by and say hi before we start work on other Avenged Sevenfold projects. So without further adieu, Avenged Sevenfold invades South East Asia. Hope to see you all there! - A7X

After over 2 year in the making we are proud to present you with Hail to the King: Deathbat. The process of developing this game has been been a new and challenging experience for us as we've worked hard to create a game that we are not only proud of but, more importantly, a game that is fun to play. We think we've achieved that goal and hope you will think so too. - M Shadows
Big contest announcement coming Friday, but for now a little fun...
