Avenged Sevenfold fans are waiting for the new album, but sadly they will have to wait a little longer. In recent months, drummer Brooks Wackerman announced that the new album was 90% done, while singer M. Shadows had said that in March they would return to the studio to complete it.
Now M. Shadows has revealed that due to myriad circumstances we might not get the full album until early 2023.
In a new interview with The Bob Lefsetz Podcast, M.Shadows said: “Status is interesting. We recorded an album, you know, a few years ago. We haven’t finished it yet. We kind of took some time off for family, COVID, weird touring circumstances, some changes within our team… And we are still currently with one record left on Warner Brothers Records. We’ll be finishing that record up – I think we have May locked out [for when] our producer can get back to work on it, and then we’re going to mix with Andy Wallace in August.”
M.Shadows continued: “And then we’re going to figure out if it’s the first quarter, or fourth quarter, or what we’re going to do. So, the status is that, and then we’re going to be booking tours, put the tickets on sale when the record comes out, and the whole nine yards.”
