WHO:    Mega-platinum-selling rock band AVENGED SEVENFOLD
WHAT:  Performing at Soldier Field as special guests of Metallica
WHEN:  June 18  
STUFF YOU SHOULD KNOW:

·         Avenged Sevenfold is touring in support of new album, THE STAGE, which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock, Hard Rock and Alternative Albums charts, No. 4 on the Top 200 and debuted Top 5 on iTunes in over 35 countries.  The album’s title track hit Top 5 at rock radio and its companion video has amassed over 16 million YouTube views to date. Last week they released a video for “God Damn” and it already has more than 1.5 million views.

·         Rolling Stone praised the album as “the most aggressively bonkers music of the quintet’s career.” Guitar World, who spotlighted the band’s Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance with a cover story, lauded the disc for being “the most surprising and ambitious album of their career.” The Guardian  and NME each gave it four stars, with the latter calling the album “their best yet,” adding that “they’ve truly arrived.” Q called it the group’s  “boldest album yet” and Classic Rock called it “a metal masterpiece.”

·         THE STAGE, available HERE, is the band’s 7th studio album and first for Capitol Records. Co-produced by A7X and Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool), THE STAGE is a work of immense scope and ambition, featuring 11 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. Its epic 15-minute-plus closing track, “Exist,” features a guest appearance by award-winning astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson giving a spoken word performance he penned specifically for the album.

·         The band has spent the past month playing to packed-house arena crowds across the UK, debuting a spectacular new live show and drawing rave reviews from fans and media alike. The tour included two nights at London’s 02 Arena, performing to over 80k fans on that leg alone. In their 4-star review of the second 02 show, the London Evening Standard hailed Avenged Sevenfold as “a global phenomenon” and wrote that the band “specialized in preposterous fun,” praising the show as “royally entertaining.” The Guardian ran a 4-star review of the show in Glasgow, writing, “Underneath retina-scorching screens and giant cosmic cube broadcasting spiraling starfields, the five-piece methodically discharge booming, arena-filling songs…these industrial assemblages of growing riffs and fret-melting solos have a default minor-key menace, yet the overall atmosphere is surprisingly joyous.”
