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...
Heres a small sneak peak into Waking the Fallen: Resurrected. We have left no stone unturned in our quest to bring you the archived footage, rare and early recording and demos and live performances of the madness which set the pace for the Avenged Sevenfold we are today. Available on the anniversary of the original release of WTF. Enjoy!

Waking The Fallen: Resurrected will be released on August 26, 2014 via Hopeless Records. We've personally curated this 3-disc set of rare, never before seen look at Waking The Fallen. It includes the full, original album in addition to 11 previously unreleased b-sides, live and alternate versions of songs. Also new artwork, the original first cut of the music video for “Unholy Confessions” and a 30 minute documentary in which we talk about the recording of the album and that stage of our career. Also included is previously unreleased live footage of some of our earliest shows, included as part of the documentary and a new, live video for "Chapter Four."
