The Stage just got a little wider. That’s right, Avenged Sevenfold has released a new track to the ever-growing album! The band has also provided fans with a visualizer for the track that displays clips of the rockers recording and performing live.
The newest addition is the perfect way to end the summer. It is a cover of the Beach Boys’ classic “God Only Knows.” This track is the fourth cover released after “Retrovertigo,” “Dose” and “Runaway.”
Avenged Sevenfold’s take on “God Only Knows” stays fairly true to the original song. It maintains a mellow vibe throughout its duration, giving us that summertime, laid back feel that the Beach Boys are known for, but with a bit more edge. Avenged even nailed the Beach Boy’s style of multilayered vocals!
Avenged has just completed all stops on the Metallica WorldWired tour, which lasted for over three months. A7X’s only 2017 show left will be at Houston Open Air on October 15. After all the hard work of touring these guys have put in, it's no wonder they’re dreaming of chill vibes at the beach!
