News of the Avenged persuasion

Avenged Sevenfold we're interview about their new album in the newest issue of Kerrang! They mention that the new album has Danny Elfman influences which is different from the last album. I don't think they actually listened to City of Evil if they think this is new. Whatever.

Here is what Synyster Gates had to say about where they got the influences for the new songs.

"Some of them we haven't introduced before because we didn't think they fitted the profile of Avenged Sevenfold as a 'rock band' or whatever, but it was something we had to do," he continues. "We're a pretty fearless band and we had 20 songs to record; some country songs, some eight-and-a-half minute theatrical songs, some slowed-down groove-orientated songs, so we just picked the 10 very best songs that each of us could not live without for the album."

Check out more of the interview here.

They've announced a few more tour dates:

Nov. 23 - Charleston, SC - The Plex
Nov. 27 - New Orleans, LA - House of Blues
Nov. 28 - Houston, TX - Warehouse Live
Nov. 30 - Corpus Christi, TX - The Pavilion at Concrete Street
Dec. 01 - Austin, TX - La Zona Rosa
Dec. 04 - Lubbock, TX - The Pavilion
Dec. 06 - Tucson, AZ - The Rialto
Dec. 10 - San Francisco, CA - The Warfield

AND I finally watched the new video for "Almost Easy." Meh.
