Avenged Sevenfold have shared a short clip of their upcoming video for God Damn.

The track features on the US outfit’s seventh album The Stage, which was sneak-released on October 28 last year and notched up 76,000 sales during its first seven days.

The full video for God Damn will arrive on April 26 – and it comes after guitarist Zacky Vengeance previously revealed the band were planning a “spectacular” promo for the track.

He told TeamRock: “We’ve been talking really seriously about doing something for God Damn. And I think we will take it in a completely different direction than The Stage. What direction I don’t quite know.

“But being the biggest cynic and critic of modern music videos, it’s going to have to be something really spectacular or else I don’t even file like there’s a point in doing the video.”

On how he develops the concepts behind the band’s videos, he added: “I start in my own head with the most fucked up scenarios in videos that I can think of that will blow people’s minds. And then I start working backwards from there and think how we can turn it into a video that people can watch.

“I try to think so far out of the box. I throw away 99% of my ideas because they start so far into left field, but every now and again something will catch, like The Stage. I’m so truly proud of that video, but I look forward to trying to top it.

“We’ll do something and I promise it’ll be worth watching.”
