Yesterday, Chris Jericho "accidentally" leaking the name and release date of the new Avenged Sevenfold album. Whether or not the "leak" was an intentional marketing ploy to keep everyone's eyes peeled for a new song will probably never be public knowledge, but it sure seems like it.
Regardless, we're still not 100% sure that the album is called Voltaic Oceans and will be out December 9. What we are sure of is the first single off that album, "The Stage" sounds like City Of Evil-era Avenged Sevenfold, and that's fucking awesome. "The Stage" is a thrashy, shreddy track that legitimately has me stoked on a new Avenged Sevenfold album. Check it out!
The band is expected to hold a huge press conference officially announcing their new album on October 27th. We'll keep you posted.
