“It is an honor and a privilege to be taking part in Musikfest this year. The Lehigh Valley is my home. I grew up here. I grew up going to Musikfest. And now, to have the opportunity to present one of my favorite bands, Avenged Sevenfold, and have them bring the curtain down on The Fest’s 30th Anniversary is truly an amazing deal. I can’t wait to share this awesome concert with all my friends and family on my Home Team. So much thanks to Musikfest, ArtsQuest, 95.1 WZZO, 107.1 The Bone, and, of course, Avenged Sevenfold. ‘Welcome To The Family’” – Matt Bishop, founder – The Rock Revival

ThePrp.com are reporting they’ve been “hearing strong rumors“ that Avenged Sevenfold will tour North America with Deftones and Ghost (Ghost B.C.) in the Fall. Zacky Vengeance attended the Ghost (Ghost B.C.) concert alongside Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Chino Moreno (Deftones), Mickey Dee (Motörhead) and more April 15th at the El Rey.
UPDATE: The prize, an autographed Zacky Vengeance Custom, has been claimed. Johnny’s Saloon shared this photo of “out of place visitor” and the winner, Kelsey. Kelsey also shared this photo of her and the guitar. Thanks to her for allowing me to share it.
ARTISTdirect and Machine Gun Kelly spoke about the Cleveland, Ohio rapper’s album “Lace Up” and and having M Shadows appear on the title track “Save Me.” You can watch the footage of M Shadows recording his vocals and listen to the full song which also features Synyster Gates.
AD: It’s like your world opens up there.
MGK: Then, I’m fast-forwarding. Where my baby’s mom was staying at during the time was a really rough area. When I got my record deal, I ended up moving them out of there. I’d be tucking my child in, and I’d hear trashcans falling over. I’d look outside and see pitbulls fighting. You’d see crack fiends running up and down the street. Having all that shit come together on the first track, it’s like, “Yo, this is the person you’re about to hear an album from”. It’s the guy who’s seeing all of this shit. Then, you hear this scream and howl of “Can’t you save me?” and cry for help by a fucking metal singer. M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold) isn’t just a metal singer though. In my honest opinion, he’s one of the greatest lead vocalists since Axl Rose. The way he works his voice is amazing. I actually recorded that personally. I flew out to his house. It was just me and him in the studio. I got to record that shit live with no music. I got to hear how ear-piercing it was. I’m just glad that was how we started the album. Fast forward to “What I Do”, the record with Bun B. I’d never heard Bun B rap in that fat cadence before, ever. I felt like he gave me a gem.
Thanks Isaac for sending this in.
Rafa Alcantara of TWENTYFOURCORE Productions (Live In The LBC DVD/Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan tribute video) posted a photo of himself and Avenged Sevenfold inside the studio with the caption “Good times, good family. Here we go again :)
In their recent post regarding Record Store Day 2013 (more information on those limited edition releases as well as HQ artwork can be found here) Avenged Sevenfold commented with “it begins.” The phrase “It Begins” was first spotted inside of Pro Tools when Avenged Sevenfold shared a photo from inside the recording studio.
