A7X confirm Deathbat launch

Avenged Sevenfold have confirmed the launch date for their Deathbat game – it appears on October 16 via Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

It’s based on the band’s sixth album Hail To The King, released last year, and features late drummer Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan as an unlockable character.

Frontman M Shadows revealed the band’s plans in June, explaining that each of them had been deeply involved in the development of their in-game roles. He said: “With the blessing of his parents we put The Rev in the game. Once you unlock his character you can use him as your comrade to help you through the levels.”

Deathbat also includes eight A7X tracks recorded for the soundtrack plus a number of classics from their catalogue.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
