The Americanrock band will be performing their ‘Stage World Tour’ at Live Park, Rishon LeZion on June 26th 2022.
Singer M. Shadows and guitarist Zacky Vengeance were still in high school when they formed Avenged Sevenfold in 1999 in Huntington Beach, California. Later adding guitarist Synyster Gates, bassist Johnny Christ and drummer The Rev, aka The Reverend Tholomew Plague, the band released its first album, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet (2001) on the Belgian indie label Good Life Recordings. The following year, A7X signed with L.A.-based punk indie Hopeless Records, which re-released the debut and followed it with 2003’s Waking the Fallen, which reached Number 12 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums chart. Warner Bros.’ signed the band and released City of Evil (Number 30, 2005), which spawned successful rock singles “Bat Country” (Number Two Mainstream Rock, Number 6 Modern Rock, 2005) and “Beast and the Harlot” (Number 19 Mainstream Rock, Number 40 Modern Rock, 2006).
A7X’s popularity soared with the release of its 2007 self-titled album, which went to Number Four on the Billboard 200 pop albums chart. The album, which found the band flirting with genres far outside its comfort zone including pedal steel-fueled country (“Dear God”) and a Queen-style show tune (“A Little Piece of Heaven”), spawned the popular single “Almost Easy” (Number Three Mainstream Rock, Number Six Modern Rock, 2007).
Now, two decades, seven albums, numerous awards, painful tragedy, and multiple musical evolutions, the members of Avenged Sevenfold earned their first GRAMMY nomination for ‘Best Rock Song’ for ‘The Stage’.
‘This was definitely a really crazy record to write’, says guitarist Synyster Gates. ‘The Stage’ in particular is a super-long, thematic, building, progressive opening track that excites you as an artist and it excites you to introduce it to your fans, but you don’t think GRAMMYs or radio’.A7X bring you their ‘Stage World Tour’ at Live Park, Rishon LeZion on June 26th 2022.
