The Avenged Sevenfold frontman has revealed that the band is planning to finish their eighth album in January. M. Shadows told MTV News that the new material is influenced by Kanye West, who recently announced that he is currently working on a direct sequel to his 2020 album Donda. The vocalist says the band is not in a rush to release the new album because they are still waiting for the strings to be recorded in Prague.
Throughout the last year, Avenged Sevenfold has been cautious about releasing new music until their gigs resume. However, the band frontman M. Shadows has now revealed that the upcoming album will be released in summer 2022. He hasn’t yet revealed any details, other than the fact that it will be influenced by Kanye West. In addition, he also refuses to reveal what genre the album will have.
The Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows has revealed that the band isn’t rushing to release the next album. They have already finished recording their parts, but the orchestration of their songs will be finished soon. According to Shadows, the band is “still waiting on a few string instruments.” The album is still in the early stages, so fans should stay tuned for news on the upcoming record.
Shadows’ latest interview with Space Zebra reveals that the group is recording a full-length album in June. The new music will be the first since Avenged Sevenfold’s 2016 album, The Stage. M. Shadows also notes that the band will work with an orchestra this month. In addition to their usual live performances, the band will record the upcoming album alongside an orchestra.
The Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows also revealed that he has been inspired by Kanye West. The frontman referred to the rapper’s work as a huge influence on the band’s sound. This is a good sign for the band’s upcoming album, which is expected to be out in the summer of 2022. The new material will be an epic collection of songs that will make fans scream.
Avenged Sevenfold’s upcoming album will be a follow-up to the 2016 album The Stage. It will contain a mix of rock and progressive metal and will be a long-awaited album. The band has already announced a handful of shows for the rest of the summer. The new songs will be released at the beginning of July, so it’s possible to hear them in advance.
The frontman of Avenged Sevenfold says that the band’s upcoming album is “not the same as the previous albums” because the songs he’s writing will be different from those that were released previously. In the past, the band has released several singles, but the upcoming one will be their eighth studio album. The album will be the follow-up to the 2007 self-titled album.
