Synyster Gates On New Avenged Sevenfold Music: “It’s Still Early On, But We’re Working On A Bunch Of Stuff”

Avenged Sevenfold have been working on new material for their next album and Synyster Gates talked a bit about where the band is at with it during a chat with Loudwire. According to him, “it’s still early on, but [they are] working on a bunch of stuff.”


Synyster Gates said the following:

“We’re definitely working on stuff and I’m really excited about the stuff that we’re working on. We’re not full, in the throes, shoulder to shoulder writing music yet but we’re exchanging ideas and hanging and we’re very much interested … in the brainstorming aspect, the meeting of the minds kind of thing that we do before we write a record.”

“We all come together and philosophize and pontificate to each other and just kind of say, ‘Hey, I want it to sound like this. What do you want it to sound like?’ The coolest thing is, we are such on the same page like never before. Our best records and my favorites and certainly the most successful have been where we’re all on the same page. So I’m excited about it. We don’t have much to show for it yet. It’s still early on, but we’re working on a bunch of stuff.”

Stone Sour Writing New Music

During an interview with Heavy magazine, Corey Taylor confirmed that Stone Sour have already began writing a follow-up to “Hydrograd.” He said the following:

“We started writing new [Stone Sour] music pretty much as soon as we got on the road. We’re just can’t be stopped. We’re gluttons for punishment at this point. The cool thing is knowing that we’ve got all this great material, we can kinda enjoy the rest as much as we can because we know when it’s time to really start ramping up the demo machine, we’re gonna have all this cool stuff to listen to. There’s no pressure for us to just run right in.”

“Obviously I’m going to do Slipknot next year, and it will allow the audience to miss [Stone Sour], which is the best thing in the world you can have. That built-in need for a band to come back just when you think you can’t wait any longer, here comes this band and they’re like, ‘Goddamn, they’re so good right now.’So we’re pretty stoked, man. We’re definitely looking forward to trying to see if we can top ‘Hydrograd’.””
