Avenged Sevenfold’s video for the song “God Damn” has dropped today and can be seen below! The new music video comes from the band’s seventh studio album “The Stage.” “The Stage” was a surprise release this last October with very little promotion put into it. The album debuted at No.4 on The Billboard 200 album chart this last November. "God Damn" can be seen below! Also, a short video on the making of the video was posted to youtube!
Avenged Sevenfold will be touring with Metallica on the “WorldWired” tour. Live Nation will begin selling these tickets May 10th for the North American leg of the tour! The first show is set to kick fans in the teeth in Baltimore, Maryland!
"But the main idea was to get fans involved and make sure the kids knew this is a song full of energy first and foremost — 'hey, this is a record we can wrap our heads around. It's cool live stuff. It's a rockin' song' — but at the same time, we wanted the technological hint in there, so as the video progresses you start seeing things glitching out and all of a sudden the world turns digital. And by the end, there's a little nod to the lyrics; you see an eyeball kind of in there as an Easter egg, which is kind of big brother watching what we do the whole time as the humans turn into a digital world."- M. Shadows to Billboard
