Avenged Sevenfold To Start New Album in the Fall
A7X‘s latest album, Nightmare, was released in 2010, and was their first album to debut at Number One on the Billboard album chart. Several tours and award shows later the band now has nothing on their schedule. Guitarist Zacky Vengeance says the band will be working on a new album.
“We’ve been home for awhile, just taking a little rest, and after these shows, we’re gonna rest a little bit longer — just for the summer. We’ve never really had a summer to just be home and just unwind. But after that, as soon as summertime starts winding down, it’s gonna be (time to start) getting together to start writing, working on new material.”
Their sixth studio album will be the first one written without The Rev. Nightmare was written before his death, but recorded after his accidental overdose. Zacky says the writting process will be difficult without Sullivan being there.
“You know, it comes time to write the next album, we’re gonna have to face the very difficult realization that Jimmy’s not there to write with us and we’re gonna have to compensate and dig deep within ourselves and really find what we feel is right and what’s the best thing to do. And that’s what we’ve done our whole career.”
Do you think Avenged Sevenfold can put out an album that’s full of hits without their main song writer?
