M.Shadows: "‘This Means War’ is up there with ‘Hail to the King’ in terms of crowd reaction, especially in..."

Loudwire has interviewed M.Shadows, below an excerpt:

‘Hail to the King’ and ‘Shepherd of Fire’ have hit here in the U.S., but what other songs off the record are doing it live for you at the moment?


‘This Means War’ is up there with ‘Hail to the King’ in terms of crowd reaction and kids chanting for it. Especially over here in South America. It’s insane how big that song is especially without that song even being a single. ‘Doing Time’ is really big here. Those are the only four we’ve been playing, but it’s like, very surprising. You get a lot of the kids in America and sometimes in the U.K. where we’ve been bigger there for longer I think, or have been our way up there for longer. So a lot of those — you hear a lot of “oh just played ‘Waking the Fallen’ stuff, or ‘City of Evil’ stuff.”
You play those over in South America and it goes OK, but really it’s the new record, ‘Nightmare’ and the ‘White’ album that they just lose their s— over. So it’s fulfilling to use to know that, that’s like our bread and butter over here. It feels good to put out a new record and have it go over as well as or even better than the previous ones. So it’ll be one of those things, determining on the nation we’re in, we’ll have to make the setlist accordingly.
