Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows Says He’s “Been Cleared To Start Humming And Doing Light Warm-Ups” Following Vocal Issues

Avenged Sevenfold previously cancelled their summer tour with Prophets Of Rage, etc. due to M. Shadows suffering from vocal issues. Now, during a recent interview with Revolver, he revealed that he has now “been cleared to start humming and doing light warm-ups.” He said the following about his condition:

“It’s been fine … just a lot of rest. Luckily, I didn’t have surgery. I was just put on a long vocal rest until the swelling went down. A lot of singers get this at some point, so it’s nothing to worry about. I’ve already been cleared to start humming and doing light warm-ups.”

He also added that the hardest part was “not speaking when you are out in public is tough. People don’t understand and think you’re full of shit.”

Listening to the band or artist tell the background and feelings surrounding my favorite songs… to connect even further with a piece of music that already means the world to me. That’s what this tour will be. Myself, along with some amazing friends in Sons of Zero, will be playing music and telling the stories the created it all. Expect songs from Vanna, Trove, and a couple covers that we love. Come sing with us. See and hear you there.”

Beyond Creation Share Studio Playthrough Video For New Song “Entre Suffrage Et Mirage”

Beyond Creation have shared a studio playthrough video for their new song “Entre Suffrage Et Mirage.” This track is from the band’s new album “Algorythm,” which will be released on October 12.

The group commented:

“We’re excited to release our 3rd promo single ‘Entre Suffrage et Mirage‘ as a band studio play-through! This song is a bit different than both previously released songs off ‘Algorythm‘, fairly leaning towards our more technical roots.

We wanted to connect with our long-time fans with a fast and catchy song, with multiple layers of melodic elements, while still keeping the vibe we went for in ‘Algorythm‘. In this video, we were also able to capture some of the great ambiance offered by the amazing studio ‘The Grid‘, in Montreal.”

Yashira Stream New Song “Led To Ache”

Yashira are streaming a new song titled “Led To Ache,” via Decibel. You can check that out HERE. This track will appear on the band’s new split release with Zao, which will be available tomorrow (September 21). Yashira commented:

“When we were approached to do the split, we had just finished writing ‘Led To Ache‘ and felt it fit perfectly with Zao’s track. The song deals with the harm that manifests daily through the corporate obsession with production, development, and expansion, as well as the subsequent guilt of being a consumer in 2018 and cynicism about the future.”
