VII: The End Of Deathbat News.

After 7 years, it’s time for Deathbat News to come to an end. When I created this website I never imagined it would become what it did. The love and support from fans over the years has been incredible. Because of you, Deathbat News had a worldwide audience to spread the word about Avenged Sevenfold to and our community turned into a family. A family I will always be a part of. I can’t express my sincere thanks enough to you all. I truly cherish the friendships, memories and experiences that have come from this.

I also owe great thanks to M. Shadows, Zacky Vengeance, Synyster Gates, Johnny Christ, Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan, Arin Ilejay, Larry Jacobson, Alex Reese, Kazy Brown, everyone on Avenged Sevenfold’s team at Warner Brothers Records, Mr and Mrs Sullivan, Diony, Marvin, Bruce, Za, Dave and the rest of Avenged Sevenfold’s tour crew, Jodi, Francis, Brian Haner Sr, Chris Epting and family, Cam Rackam, John Reese, John Oakes, Jessica, Danielle, Cheryl, Elizabeth, Brandon Geist and Revolver Magazine, Josh Bernstein at Alternative Press, Alexander Milas and Metal Hammer, Kerrang!, Hopeless Records, MTV, Active Rock Radio and everyone else who helped me and supported me over the years.

Regarding the website: You will be able to access it using DeathbatNews.com for the foreseeable future. If that’s to change, you can use deathbatnews.wordpress.com. If needed, I can still be contacted at deathbatnews@gmail.com.

UPDATE: Avenged Sevenfold on Deathbat News’ closing:

After 7 years of being the number one source for Avenged Sevenfold news we are sad to let you know that the owner of Deathbatnews.com has decided to move on and no longer update the website. The person responsible for the website has never revealed her identity so we won’t do that here, but we truly want to thank her for her dedication and hard work over the years. In a world where websites and media make a living off of “click bait”, stirring the pot and misleading headlines, Deathbatnews was always run with facts and integrity. In the end, this played a big role in her deciding to close the site down. This website will be sorely missed as it was the number one source for band members and crew to become aware of news that we didn’t know about. “Deathbat Lady”, we will miss you and thank you for your years of dedication.

Love,
A7X

Avenged Sevenfold Live In Lafayette, LA – Photo Round-Up & Recap.

Filed under: Deathbat News, Live, Pictures, Shepherd Of Fire Tour

I attended the Lafayette, La stop of Avenged Sevenfold’s Shepherd Of Fire Tour (set list found here) and am still riding a post-concert high. If there is a date on this tour in your area you do not want to miss it. It is a spectacular show. I had such a wonderful night and owe a special THANK YOU to Avenged Sevenfold for giving Deathbat News a shout-out (and for everything else!), to all the fans that screamed when asked if they read this website and to all the fans who are new visitors. What a surreal moment. With that said, here are a few shots I took at the show. Please DO NOT REMOVE/CROP COPYRIGHT TAG, ALTER IMAGES or REPOST in any way. Thank you.
