The band’s last visit was in 2013 for a SOLD OUT!!! arena tour plus an awe inspiring headline slot at Download Festival in June 2014 which cemented their unshakable reputation for breath-taking live performances. Avenged Sevenfold recently played a groundbreaking live 360 Virtual Reality gig on the roof of Capitol Records in LA after which they surprised fans with the announcement that their new album ‘The Stage’ their first for Capitol Records would be available that night.
 
Previously they had made headlines with the release of the title track, co-produced by the band and Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age / Tool) and a companion video directed by Chris Hopewell (Radiohead / The Killers). The latter has already amassed well over ten million YouTube views, 'The Stage' is a work of immense scope and ambition, featuring eleven panoramic tracks tied together by an Artificial Intelligence theme.

Inspired by the writings of Carl Sagan and Elon Musk, the album is the band’s first thematic release. While the term “AI” conjures up images of robots and fantasy films, the band steers clear of a science fiction storyline. Instead, the album sees them taking a futurist’s look at the accelerated rate at which technology’s intelligence is expanding and what that means... good and bad for the future.
