Avenged Sevenfold's M.Shadows responds to a fan about setlist, instrumental song, new album and more

M.Shadows replying to fans on Reddit.com, below a question and answer:


Fan: Hey Matt, huge Avenged fan here, and have been for a while. I have some questions that I've been dying to ask for the longest time. So, here it goes:
1.) Are there any songs that you have never played live that you would like to? I'd like to personally recommend Victim, Natural Born Killer, Sidewinder (Poor Arin), Heretic, Coming Home, and Lost. Also Carry On, I know you guys have played it before, but I think it would be awesome if you brought it back.
2.) Have you guys ever considered doing a purely instrumental song?
3.) Can we expect a 2015 album release?
4.) This is kind of a follow up to my last question. Do you think your next album will be similar to Hail to the King, or will it be more along the lines of your older material? Or is it top secret? Or do you just have no clue yet?
5.) I know you've said before that you will never feature someone from genres like hip hop or rap in one of your songs. But have you ever thought if doing one with a band like Korn, Slipknot, Tool, ect?
6.) My final question. Can I please request that on your next tour, whenever it may be, that you stop by Vancouver? The last time you were here was on the White Album tour as far as I know. But please correct me if I'm wrong.
That's it. Thanks for doing the AMA and keep up the awesome work.

M.Shadows: hey! lots of questions! excuse the quick responses...
1)Tons of songs we wanna get to. Those are all great choices... I'd add Acid Rain to that list.
2) Yes we have but then I get jealous and put my annoying vocals over them :) Maybe in the future.
3) No 2015 release
4) Album will be different than all the above. We always change it up. We have ideas but dont wanna get the rumors swirling just yet. But it wont sound like any of our records before.
5) Its never been an interest to us honestly.
6) Vancouver here we come
