M.Shadows reveals upcoming Avenged Sevenfold project

M.Shadows spoke with Loudwire about the new Avenged Sevenfold DVD Live, below you can read an excerpt:


Avenged Sevenfold had a great run on Mayhem over the summer, but a glance at the current tour schedule looks like there’s some well deserved time off. What’s on the horizon for the band?
We’re going to do Southeast Asia and China in January. I think we’re going to do Hawaii through all of that, so there’s one U.S. date. We wanted to end it after Mayhem and then we said, “You know what, we owe it to Southeast Asia because those happen to be some of our best fans in the world, hands down insane. We never came there on this album cycle. We missed Jakarta on the ‘Nightmare’ album cycle because of a stage issue. So we just owe it to them. Then we said, “While we’re there, why don’t we hit up China?” We don’t know how that’s going to go, but we’re excited about it.
Then we have the DVD we’re working on right now. It’s the next project and we’re dealing with mixes and edits and artwork. Then that should come back early next year and then we’ll take some time off, maybe start writing a record in the summer or September, who knows? We’re starting to get that fire back to where you feel like you have something to prove and that’s where we want to me. We want to go up there and be in the mix and put out some killer music.
