Avenged Sevenfold have announced they’ll perform a live show on October 27, which will be streamed live across the world.

In a brief statement the band say the performance will take place “on a very grand stage for the entire world to enjoy.” It begins at 8.30pm PDT (seven hours behind GMT) and it’ll available via the band’s website. View a trailer video below.

Rumours suggest their seventh album will be entitled Voltaic Oceans and it’ll be released on December 9.

Avenged Sevenfold last week released The Stage, the first track from the record, and the first to feature new drummer Brooks Wackerman. The album will arrive via Capitol Records after the band took legal action to end their deal with Warner Bros.

They also launched a website, Deathbot.net, where an animated skull answers questions typed into a text box. Reponses to “new album” include: “The answer to that question will be given at a special live event on October 27th” and “Like I said before, there will be a live event where we can all sip tea and discuss current events.”

When asked about “Voltaic Oceans” the skull replies: “I bet you feel like the smartest ape.” It describes Wackerman as “the Chef with a Bad Religion behind the kit cooking up beats.”

Avenged Sevenfold complete a US tour this weekend then return to the UK and Europe from January to March.
