Avenged Sevenfold Reportedly Focusing On New Music & Family This Year, Planning To Return In 2020

Avenged Sevenfold cancelled their summer tour last year due to M. Shadows’ vocal issues and now it looks like the band won’t be playing any shows this year either. Zacky Vengeance reportedly told Lou Brutus the following:

“I don’t think we will be doing any touring this year. Got some new babies on the way and are starting to get really focused on new material. I never deal in absolutes, but right now it’s leaning heavily towards 2020.”

AVENGED SEVENFOLD NEWS! Was just texting with Zacky Vengeance and asked him about Avenged Sevenfold touring. He told me, "I don't think we will be doing any touring this year. Got some new babies on the way and are starting to get really focused on new material. I never deal in absolutes, but right now it's leaning heavily towards 2020." While I'm bummed about no touring for awhile, I'm very happy for their family additions and eventual new music.

Synyster Gates Says He Wants To Remaster Songs From His & The Rev’s Pre-Avenged Sevenfold Band Pinkly Smooth

During a recent live stream with Rick Beato, Synyster Gates said he would like to remaster songs from his and The Rev’s pre-Avenged Sevenfold band Pinkly Smooth. He said the following about the group’s album “Unfortunate Snort”:

“It was just this crazy, clown-goblin metal, Danny Elfman-influenced stuff and it was so fun. I can’t find the masters. I hear that there’s actually an ugly rumor that some have surfaced, and if I can find those then I’m going to remaster it and give it to you guys.”
