AVENGED SEVENFOLD guitarist Zacky Vengeance has issued the following update: "It's kind of funny to wake up and see the words AVENGED SEVENFOLD at the No. 4 spot on the Billboard top 200. Right next to THE EAGLES and a BRITNEY/CARRIE UNDERWOOD threesome. I don't know about you, but it puts a smirk on my face just knowing that our fans tattooed it right on the foreheads of everyone who would quickly disregard the name AVENGED SEVENFOLD (like we aren't a fucking force to be reckoned with, Haha). So once again thank you from the bottom of our hearts. "MTV has decided to debut our video for 'Almost Easy' on 'TRL', which makes me believe that someone over at MTV is screaming for something real. "I'll be honest with you: When I roll out of bed every morning my goal in life isn't to be alongside pop stars or actors and actresses or on the cover of the national Enquirer. It sure does feel good, though, to surprise all those people that don't even know what 'an A7X' is by putting them right behind us on the countdown or going home with their moonman. "With that said, if you wanna vote and bury whatever else they're playing at the moment you can do that here. If not, we're still coming to your city to kick ass and have a great fucking time with all of you. "Thank you all again for every ounce of support love and respect!"
The official version of Avenged Sevenfold's music video for their first single, "Almost Easy" is now available below. Avenged Sevenfold's self titled follow-up to City of Evil will be released October 30th. Catch Avenged Sevenfold on their fall tour with Operator, The Confession and Black Tide.
