Avenged Sevenfold reportedly set to release surprise new album ‘The Stage’

Seventh record to be released on Friday (October 28)

Avenged Sevenfold are set to release a new album, according to reports.

The US metal band last released an album in 2013 with ‘Hail To The King’. Thought to be titled ‘The Stage’, the group’s seventh LP is expected to be released on Friday (October 28).

‘The Stage’ would be the band’s first album to feature new drummer Brooks Wackerman following the departure of Arin Ilejay in 2015.


Amazon Canada appears to have leaked details about the album, listing its rumoured title and release date.

The leak also features a possible tracklisting and album artwork. See both below.

‘Creating God’
‘Roman Sky’
‘Fermi Paradox’


The band have been teasing a special live event for Thursday (October 27), rumoured to be a 3D, 360-degree, live-streamed virtual reality performance.


It’s no secret that the band have been writing for a new record since 2015 – guitarist Zacky Vengeance told Kerrang! at the end of last year the songs they had written were “very aggro”.

In a now deleted Instagram post, Chris Jericho, wrestler and friend to Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows, claimed that the album would be titled ‘Voltaic Oceans’ and released on December 9.

Earlier this month, the band shared a new single ‘The Stage’ while Vengeance tweeted “October is a month to celebrate”.
