Celebrating nearly two decades of commercial success doesn't come easy for most metal bands these days, but Avenged Sevenfold hold that rare honor. The band, which found massive success with the release of their seventh studio album, The Stage, will discuss their career and new music in an intimate event at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles next month.
The SoCal-based quintet recently wrapped a summer tour with metal icons Metallica and have plans for a U.S. headlining tour early next year. They'll discuss their run with James Hetfield and Co., the creation of The Stage and its surprise release as well as plans for new music in the near future at the Grammy Museum on Oct. 19. Following the conversation, which will be led by Grammy Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman, the band will perform an intimate acoustic set. Tickets for the event go on sale this Thursday, Sept. 28 at 12 p.m. PDT.
The Stage peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 upon its release in October 2016. The band's first concept album, it is driven by the ideas of artificial intelligence, societal destruction, religion and NASA exploration. The album was co-produced by Joe Barresi, whose credits include Queens of the Stone Age and Tool.
