Avenged Sevenfold is planning to release a new album by the summer of 2022.

During a recent stream on the DWPresents Twitch channel, frontman M. Shadows revealed, “We’re booking shows for next summer, and the record will be out before then.”

As for what the upcoming effort will sound like, well, you’ll just have to wait until it’s released to find out.

“There’s no way to describe music,” Shadows asserts. “It’s like, ‘Oh, it’s heavy, it’s fast.’ Like, what are we gonna say about it? It’s a work of art that we’ve worked on for a long time.”

Avenged Sevenfold’s most recent album is 2016’s conceptually driven The Stage.
