Avenged Sevenfold's M.Shadows talks about new album and tour

M.Shadows talked with Full Metal Jackie about 'Hail To The King: Deathbat' video game and more. Below you can read an excerpt:


Now that the video game is coming out, when will the band collectively turn its attention to new music and the next album and touring cycle?
We have a couple of places that we never hit on the ‘Hail to the King’ world tour and we’re going to take care of those places first. Right now we’re really in a recalibration mode where we’re throwing around ideas and getting excited again, but there’s really no point of trying to write a record just to write a record. There’s no point of starting too soon, because you just burn out quickly again.
For us, what we want to do is, get ourselves to the point where we can’t stand it any longer and we have to write a record just to get it out. We just started hanging out with our families and being home, doing things we’ve been wanting to do. The next record and the future of what’s going to happen is so much in the infant stage, I really have no clue. But I do know that when the fire is burning again, which I know it will, because it’s already starting. We like to wait to a point where we have to get in there and write a record because we’re just so built up.
