2021 continues to be a banner year for Avenged Sevenfold when it comes to sales/streaming awards. This past March the RIAA certified their 2003 sophomore album “Waking The Fallen” platinum and its lone single “Unholy Confessions” gold. Last month came word that the group’s 2010 album “Nightmare” and its 2013 follow-up “Hail To The King” had both gone platinum as well.

That leads us up to now, where the group have just scored several more certifications in the United States as of May 04th, 2021. Here’s what’s newly been awarded:
