Update – January 14th 12:28pm:
Avenged Sevenfold‘s publicist has since clarified that word of the band entering the studio next month was erroneous and that no timeframe has been established for the effort as of yet. Alas, you’ll just have to refer to the band’s new statement that addressed their legalities with their label Warner Bros., of the new album it offered:
“…We are in the middle of writing a record we cannot wait for you to hear. We expect to go into the studio very soon, and look forward to releasing our new album later this year.”
Avenged Sevenfold will be hitting the studio next month to begin tracking their new album. The news comes as part of a press release issued on the new signature models of the band’s guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, which you can find more details of here and here. According to the press release, both the SYNSTER CUSTOM-S and the Zacky Vengeance ZV-6661 will be used on the new record. The album will mark their first with drummer Brooks Wackerman, formerly of Bad Religion. Expect to hear more about it soon.
