M.Shadows on new EP, voice rehab, favorite new music and Vinnie Paul

Avenged Sevenfold had to cancel its headlining tour due to vocal damage that M.Shadows sustained from a viral infection. "A blood blister has formed on my vocal folds and is preventing them from vibrating properly," he revealed at the time. "Luckily, doctors feel that three months of no singing and voice rest should get my cords back on track."

The setback hasn't stopped the band from ringing in the fall in style, however: They have a massive new song, "Mad Hatter," written for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and an imminent new EP, Black Reign (available now here), featuring the four tracks they've contributed to the Call of Duty franchise over the years. M.Shadows is excited about it all and wants to talk about it — the only problem is that he's still in the period of doctor-mandated voice rest.

Fortunately, M.Shadows is allowed to respond to emails and Revolver Magazine sent him some questions. You can read some excerpts below.

Avenged Sevenfold to release a new EP soon

Avenged Sevenfold will be releasing a new EP in the near future. The release will compile all four songs they have written for the Call of Duty franchise, including a brand new track that they recently teased.

Fans on Reddit and Twitter dug up the information in the digital issue of Kerrang!, which contains an interview with frontman M.Shadows. Speaking on the new track, he said, "The song is dark and brooding. We wanted to capture a difference feeling than a straight-ahead 'zombie killer' track. These songs are good places for us to experiment with our sound. I would put this in the category of 'dark alternative.'"

A video will accompany the song as well. "We will be using game footage to present the song. Further down the line we are working on some cool things with Treyarch to enhance the Black Ops 4 experience".

Regarding the EP as a whole he described it as giving their Call of Duty songs "a place to live." "We will also be releasing 'Jade Helm,' which is the multiplayer score we did for Black Ops 3. Until now that has only been available on YouTube and in the game." You can check out tweets containing screenshots of the interview below.

An official release date has yet to be revealed, but fans are expecting it to drop any day in the near future. You can listen to the roughly 16-second teaser here. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be released on Oct. 12, 2018.
