Avenged Sevenfold would possibly go the singles route after dropping Life Is However A Dream, in keeping with bassist Johnny Christ. In an interview with Whiplash, Christ mentioned Avenged Sevenfold is extra excited by dropping single songs and making them large occasions slightly than go down the standard path anymore.
“We would like this to be a full expertise as an album,” mentioned Christ. “We do not know if we’re gonna do a full album once more, to be sincere. We would do singles and eventize these in a while in our profession. At this second, that is our physique of labor that we wish everybody to get type of on the similar time and expertise it from observe one to trace eleven. And I believe that that is what has all the time been essential to us, is the way in which we launch issues to the general public. And it is not as a result of we’re hoity-toity and assume we’re higher than different artists or something like that. It is simply we now have a sure manner that we talk with our followers and have [done] for the final 20-plus years.
“And we prefer to preserve that intact and all the time give you a brand new, enjoyable manner of releasing it. Similar to with our music — we’re all the time difficult ourselves and attempting to do new issues in our music. Why cease there? Let’s take into consideration how we will do one thing enjoyable within the releases and stuff like that. And I believe that is actually what got here again to the way in which we launched The Stage. We had this grandiose concept that we may do… It won’t be accepted immediately. However the cool factor was we did what we needed to do. We dropped a shock launch, which nobody had achieved in our style on the time, and we obtained to play on the highest of Capitol Data, the long-lasting rooftop there, and do the first-ever digital livestream in 2016.
“And on the time I did not even understand what that may imply. It wasn’t till 2020, as everyone knows, and all the things went loopy and everybody went to digital livestreams that it was capable of really present a bit of bit extra significance that it already had being on the highest of Capitol Data and taking part in a livestream.”
The entire “albums are a factor of the previous” thought is one which’s been floating round within the metallic world for a short time now. Most notably from Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan, who mentioned in a 2022 interview that Slipknot would possibly focus less on full-length albums now that they are out of their contract with Roadrunner.
