New Avenged Sevenfold Album Out by Summer 2022, M. Shadows Says

Avenged Sevenfold‘s M. Shadows revealed on Tuesday (July 6) that the hard rock act’s next studio album, the follow-up to 2016’s The Stage, will be out in time for the band’s return to the concert stage in summer 2022.

The lead vocalist for the “Bat Country” rockers shared the loose timeline during a livestream interview with That Space Zebra Show, but he still kept most of his cards close to his chest. So far, A7X fans don’t know a lot about the upcoming effort, and that’s by design — even describing the sound of the album was something Shadows was unwilling to do this week, apparently because such a description could get misconstrued.

“The reason we don’t say much about the music,” Shadows said, “is because we find that every single word we say about it just gets spun off, and there’s no way to describe music. It’s like, ​’Oh, it’s heavy, it’s fast…’ What are we gonna say about it?” [via Kerrang]

He continued, “It’s a work of art that we’ve worked on for a long time; we had a bunch of personal things that we’ll explain later… but we’re booking shows for next summer, and the record will be out before then.”
