Avenged Sevenfold’s Asia & Southeast Asia Tour Dates Announced.

Avenged Sevenfold have now posted Asia & Southeast Asia tour dates to their website with an extra date in Hawaii. As stated by M. Shadows, this is the only touring Avenged Sevenfold have planned for 2015 before possibly starting the writing process this Summer.

As most of you know we have decided to take some time off after a year straight of touring. We finished up Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and after a brief stint in Japan we wanted to shut it down for a while. There was only one problem, some of our most passionate fans in the world reside in South East Asia and we never made it over to them on this tour. In fact Indonesia hasn’t seen A7X in action in about 5 years. So we owe it to all of our friends in that part of the world to come by and say hi before we start work on other Avenged Sevenfold projects. So without further adieu, Avenged Sevenfold invades South East Asia. Hope to see you all there!

Z-98’s Shroom chatted with M. Shadows about Hail To The King: Deathbat and also found out about Avenged Sevenfold’s future writing plans.

Shroom: Have [Avenged Sevenfold] been writing?
MS: “I think the most important thing for us is to get that spark and that fire to start… to wanna start writing. We never just write on the road, we always try to get a very clear idea of of what we wanna accomplish and then we attack it and right now that idea is really coming in to place. We’ve talked a lot about it and I think after this tour we do in China coming up we will be back in the saddle and by the Summer we should be writing.
