Avenged Sevenfold “Not Thinking About A New Album”
M. Shadows: "If we decide to write, we will, if we decide not to, we won't."
Any Avenged Sevenfold fans expecting a swift return to the studio for the Californian metallers after their current touring cycle should probably look away now. Frontman M. Shadows, has stated that they're not putting any pressure on themselves to start writing a follow-up to 2010's 'Nightmare' any time soon.
Speaking to The Pulse Of Radio, he said: "I think bands burn themselves out. I mean, look what happened to Disturbed. You get caught up in the 'do a record, tour for two years, do a record, tour for two years.' We just need to make sure everybody's mentally in the right spot before we start writing and doing a new record. Right now, I think we're gonna tour, go back to Europe in February, maybe finish up with a couple of things in Europe in the summer, and then take six, seven months and just sit around. If we decide to write, we will, if we decide not to, we won't.
And as we all know, nobody wants to end up like Disturbed. Take all the time you need, lads.
