Avenged Sevenfold have announced that they’ll release a deluxe edition of their seventh studio album The Stage next month.
It’ll launch on December 15 and feature their covers of Mr Bungle’s Retrovertigo, Del Shannon’s Runaway, Mexican folk song Malagueña Salerosa, Beach Boys’ 1966 hit God Only Knows, Rolling Stones song As Tears Go By and Pink Floyd classic Wish You Were Here.
Also included is their new track Dose along with four live songs recorded at their recent show at The O2 Arena in London: The Stage, Paradigm, Sunny Disposition and God Damn.
Earlier this year, the band’s M Shadows explained why they had decided to record new material and add covers to The Stage.
He said: “We’ve said all along that we want The Stage to be a different and exciting listening experience. For us, the idea of turning an album into a living piece of art and adding new installations is really intriguing. It expands the journey.”
The Stage Deluxe Edition will launch on 2CD, vinyl and on digital services and is now available for pre-order (opens in new tab).
