Avenged Sevenfold will release their sixth studio disc titled Hail To The King on August 27th via Warner Bros. Records. All the details were uncovered via an online scavenger hunt that led fans to different websites that were hosting various puzzle pieces. The final artwork was revealed on Wednesday (June 26th).
The band is playing a free show at the Hollywood Palladium on August 26th to celebrate the album’s release. No ticket information has been released at this time.
The rockers tapped Mike Elizondo to produce the disc which follows 2010’s Nightmare. The album earned the band their first #1 album on Billboard’s 200 charts.
Hail To The King is rumored to be more blues-rock influenced sounding more like classic rock and classic metal like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin.
Snippets of the new album have been streaming on the band’s new radio app since May.
