Avenged Sevenfold have announced an arena tour of the UK, with Disturbed and In Flames sharing the bill.

They’ll play eight dates together in January 2017, with tickets going on sale on July 29 (Friday) at 9am via Live Nation.

Avenged Sevenfold’s last release was 2013’s Hail To The King. The band have since been working on what will be their seventh album with new drummer Brooks Wackerman.

They said in January: “We expect to go into the studio very soon, and look forward to releasing our new album later this year.”

They’ll commence a North American tour with Volbeat, Killswitch Engage and Avatar in September.

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.
