Listen to Avenged Sevenfold on iHeartRadio

Avenged Sevenfold will be back this summer with a new album.  The rockers have announced plans to release their sixth studio effort, dubbed Hail to the King, on August 27th.  And on the night before the big release, they'll celebrate with a free show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. 

Hail to the King will be Avenged Sevenfold's follow-up to "Nightmare," which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 back in 2010.  In the interim, the guys have spent a lot of time on the road, including a USO tour for troops in Kuwait and Iraq.
