You may have seen that Avenged Sevenfold’s Deathbat logo has been popping up in various places recently but there could be no warning as to the reasoning why. Today Avenged Sevenfold may have answered that by dropping a brand new music video for their song The Stage.

The Stage, which is a haunting representation of history, shows people watching a puppet show of conflicts through the past. It’s ending is worth sticking around for and the song as a whole holds promise for what is next to come for this Californian quartet.

You can expect to hear The Stage when Avenged Sevenfold hit UK shores in January 2017, dates are as follows:

Saturday 7th – Dublin, 3Arena
Tuesday 10th – Glasgow The SSE Hydro
Thursday 12th – Newcastle Metro Radio Arena
