New Music: Avenged Sevenfold’s “The Stage”

Well, this has been a great week! Alter Bridge dropped their latest album, The Last Hero, this past Friday and now, six days later, Avenged Sevenfold’s new single has been released.

As I’m sure many of you know, it has been a hectic three years for Avenged. Following the release of Hail to the King, they did a lot of touring, then there were legal issues with their record label and the band parted ways with drummer Arin Ilejay.

Now, however, they are back! With former Bad Religion drummer Brooks Wackerman taking over for Arin, and the legal troubles seemingly settled, Avenged Sevenfold can give us what they’ve been working on.

I have only listened to “The Stage” once. My initial response is that the track is brilliant musically, but I’m not crazy about Matt’s vocals. I’m sure it will grow on me, though. Stuff from Avenged usually does. Lol.

Check it out and let me know what you think!
