AVENGED SEVENFOLD Preparing To Hit Stage In Brighton (Video)

January 5, 2011

NME TV has uploaded video footage of AVENGED SEVENFOLD preparing to hit the stage on November 7, 2010 at the Brighton Centre in Brighton, England. You can now watch the four-minute clip below.

December 28, 2010 marked the one-year anniversary of the death of AVENGED SEVENFOLD drummer James "The Rev" Sullivan, who was found dead in his Huntington Beach, California home at the age of 28.

Sullivan's death was attributed to a lethal combination of several prescription drugs, including OxyContin and Valium, with alcohol.

The drummer died just before AVENGED SEVENFOLD was to begin recording its fifth album.

The band recruited Sullivan's favorite drummer, DREAM THEATER's Mike Portnoy, to record the album with them and be their touring drummer throughout 2010.

The disc, titled "Nightmare", came out last summer and was AVENGED SEVENFOLD's first No. 1 record.

Portnoy was dismissed from the group last month. A new, yet-to-be-named drummer will join AVENGED SEVENFOLD on tour later in January when the band hits the road with STONE SOUR.
