AVENGED SEVENFOLD Frontman Will Not Need Vocal Cord Surgery

After they cancelled all their tours this summer due to M. Shadows' inflamed vocal cords.

After they cancelled all their tours this summer due to M. Shadows' inflamed vocal cords.

Avenged Sevenfold were supposed to tour with Prophets Of Rage this summer and headline Heavy Montreal. None of that came to fruition after vocalist M. Shadows revealed he was ordered by a doctor to rest his voice after being diagnosed with inflamed vocal cords. Fortunately he tells Loudwire that he doesn't need vocal cord surgery, but he did need to shut the hell up for two months and take acid reflux pills for a little bit.

So while the situation definitely sucks, it could've been a lot worse.

I know you were looking forward to the summer tour with Prophets of Rage and Three Days Grace this summer, as well as getting a chance to promote The Stage album even further. How are you coming along with your recovery?

“I got word today that my [vocal] cords are good to go and that I can start the recovery process. I did two months of no talking or singing and now I need to build it all back up. No damage was done so I’m grateful for that.”

Did you have to follow a specific diet or routine to help in your vocal recovery and do you know when you’ll be back and able to play or record again?

“I’m always on a diet for singing, also acid reflux pills and lots of water. I could probably start singing very soon but I’m going to take this recovery slow just to make sure everything is as strong as it can be. I’ll be ready to roll for the next record.”

On a less shitty Avenged Sevenfold note, the band recently released their new song "Mad Hatter." The song is a part of the Call Of Duty video games series, and will be released on a new EP called Black Reign that compiles the band's previous Call Of Duty releases.
