Avenged Sevenfold Release ‘Shepherd of Fire’ Video


Avenged Sevenfold have been having a pretty good week. First came the news that they would be performing at next year’s Download Festival in the United Kingdom and it had also been confirmed that they would be performing at the Soundwave Festival in Australia as well.

Adding more good news to fans of the band, they have released their new music video for the song, “Shepherd of Fire.” The music video is very reminiscent of their mainstream breakthrough video for “Bat Country” which plays tribute to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. 

Instead of describing how cool it is to see Synyster Gates play guitar on the hood of the moving car or how frontman M. Shadows navigates the band, you can watch the full video below.

“Shepherd of Fire” is the band’s second music video from their recently released album, Hail to the King which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.

Avenged Sevenfold Reveal New Album, Tour


Yesterday, Avenged Sevenfold release their new song, “Hail to the King” through UK magazine, Kerrang’s website. The song which will be featured on their upcoming album also to titled, Hail to the King will be the band’s first new album since 2010’s Nightmare which debuted in the top spot on the Billboard 200; their first time doing such a thing.

While a brand new album could be enough of a gift to eager fans, the band also confirmed that they will be heading out on tour with Deftones and Ghost B.C. this Fall. Talks about the three bands going out on tour together was just that, talk until it was officially confirmed with the release of official tour stops.

Pre-orders for the new album are now on sale on the band website here and the video for the new track can be seen below as well as their tour stops.

Hail to the King will be released on August 27.
