AFI vs. Avenged Sevenfold – Cage Match

Republic / Warner Bros.It was close, but AFI edged out Three Days Grace in the last Cage Match. Now, AFI are going for their fifth and final victory — and entrance into the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. But we’re certainly not gonna make it easy!

Standing in AFI’s way are the mighty Avenged Sevenfold and their new single ‘Hail to the King,’ the title track off their upcoming album, due Aug. 27. A7X will be supporting the new disc with an extensive tour, which includes a North American run with Deftones and Ghost B.C. Click here¬†for A7X’s tour dates.

Rules of Cage Match:
Fans can vote once per hour for their favorite song. If a song remains the reigning champ for five straight cage matches, it is retired to the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. With so many great songs out there, we have to give other bands a chance!
