New Preview Clip of Upcoming Avenged Sevenfold Album Surfaces
Avenged Sevenfold are apparently getting a little sneakier in their attempts to tease their next album. Earlier this month, the band offered their first taste of new music with a studio video soundtracked with a snippet of a cut from the upcoming disc that appeared via a radio player on their website. For their second preview, fans had to dig a little deeper.
Avenged Sevenfold fan site Deathbatnews.com reports that guitarist Zacky Vengeance left a comment (since deleted) leading to a post about the band's song board photo on the band's Instagram account. The posting began with the cryptic message, "The true king, Andronikos," which sent fans scurrying to figure out what 'Andronikos' meant. Further research unveiled a YouTube account belonging to AllHailAndronikos where the second album preview clip was found.
In the 80-second video, fans are once again taken into the studio where drummer Arin Illejay leads the track with a high-energy beat bolstered by the backing of a horn section and some tension-building guitar work. In addition, the footage moves from the studio to the stage where the Avenged Sevenfold guys are seen rocking against a fiery backdrop. Check out the clip above.
Though an official release date or album details have yet to be revealed, it's safe to expect the band is close to finishing their disc as they've scheduled appearances at the Rock USA festival, Heavy MTL and the Aftershock festival in late summer, with the fall to include more touring overseas.
