Avenged Sevenfold Give You A “Nightmare.” Album Out July 27th & Mike Portnoy To Be A7X’s Touring Drummer.

Filed under: Avenged Sevenfold, News

According to this article from Hard Drive Radio the first single off of Avenged Sevenfold’s upcoming record is entitled “Nightmare.” Mike Portnoy is set to become Avenged Sevenfold’s touring drummer, at least on the Rockstar Uproar Tour. And, the album is also slated for a July 27th release date in the US.

And speaking of Uproar, am hearing Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater will be the touring drummer with Avenged Sevenfold.  Mike plays on the new to-be-titled Avenged Sevenfold album, due July 27. The first single, which I heard in LA, is called “Nightmare” and it is smoking hot!

This has not been confirmed.

I hope they keep things like this. Never get a new full time drummer, but have Mike drum on the albums and tour with them.

Comment by Jimbo

Uhhh… wouldn’t that be considered a full time drummer? If he is playing all of the tours with him and recording the albums, I think that is about as full time as you can get in a band…

Starting every article with “Avenged Sevenfold…” always makes me giggle. We’re on an A7X fansite, it should be a given.

Hurry Hurry Hurry!!!!

Comment by Josh

So if this true, will mike have to make up a stage name?

Comment by J-mac

its mike portnoy. he doesn’t need a stage name…

Comment by corey6661

It’s avenged sevenfold. He needs a stagename.

Comment by J-mac

Mike doesn’t need a stage name as he is not a permanent member of the band.

Comment by Vienna

He’s not a full time drummer for A7x, he does not need a stage name. He is Mike Portnoy, that’s as good as a stage name can get.

Comment by Ish

Very true!

Comment by Chase

Comment by Marc-Synyster!!

Avenged Sevenfold (A7X) is my fav band. They are so intense and original. They have a great sound and their music is addictive. Sooo pumped for Nightmare Album. If you haven’t seen these guys in concert get the live in the LBC cd it kicks ass and watching it gave me more respect for the band and made me like them more

Comment by Ryan

You all do know that Nightmare the single is out on ITunes and shit like that right? Or if ur cheap like me you can get it free from MP3 sites :)

Comment by mike
