Avenged Sevenfold Hope To Conclude Warner Bros. Lawsuit Before Working On Next Album

It looks like Avenged Sevenfold are going to try to finish their legal battle with Warner Bros. before they start working on their next album. The case was originally set to go to trial back in December, but that obviously didn’t happen. M. Shadows told Billboard the following:

“We have a couple things we’re looking at, but right now we’re still dealing with the label situation, the lawsuit [with Warner Bros.], so we’ve still got a couple of things we have to clean up before we move on to the next record. For us right now we’re going to do this tour and by the time we get to September we’re either going to South America or we’re not, and if we don’t then we’ll start thinking about the next record.”

Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows Says Attending The Grammy Awards Would Be A “Waste Of Time And Money”

It was previously reported that Avenged Sevenfold weren’t attending the 2018 Grammy Awards to protest how the rock/metal awards are treated. Now, M. Shadows has offered more onsight into his statement. In a text to Eddie Trunk, he said it is “not really a protest per se,” but the group are not happy about the fact that the “Best Rock Song” was added to the list of categories that aren’t televised. He went on to say “Fuck ’em,” and that it’s a “waste of time and money” due to the band having to spend about $150,000 on flights and hotels to get them and their wives from South Dakota to New York and then back to Oklahoma for a show. “And then they go and pull the ‘Rock Song Of The Year’ award from TV and put us in some side venue no one gives a fuck about? Fuck that waste of time and money,” Shadows told Trunk. He also added that rock gets “no respect” from the Grammy organizers. “I mean, how marginalized has rock become when ‘Rock Song’ of the year can’t get two minutes?” he said, according to Trunk. This year’s Grammy Awards will be held on January 28.
