Ernie Ball artists Avenged Sevenfold are back with their first new music in several years, releasing the eight-and-a-half minute epic song “The Stage” early this morning. The track features many of the hallmark attributes that A7X has become known for – fret tapping intro, heavy riff grooves, harmonized solos, etc. – as well as some new additions, such as some spacey synth chords kicking things off.

The video accompanying the song’s release is quite epic in its own regard, featuring an old-timey circus theme and a puppet show spanning the entire evolution of mankind.

While there has been no official announcement of a new record, we’re hopeful that this is an indication that a full LP is imminent. In the meantime, the band is getting ready to kick off a European tour in early 2017.

Until more new music is announced and released, enjoy the rest of the band’s catalog on Spotify.
