According to The Pulse Of Radio, AVENGED SEVENFOLD is taking the rest of 2014 off and will spend some of that time working on a brand new DVD. Singer M. Shadows said that the band is dealing at the moment with mixes and editing and artwork for the disc, which should come out sometime early next year. He told The Pulse Of Radio that the documentary uses the 2009 death of drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan as a starting point. "The DVD will take place right before we lose Jimmy, and then it's gonna basically take you all the way through to now," he said. "So it'll be mixed in with some live performances, but there will also be a very strong story arc to what our story is and what's going on with us."
Shadows told Loudwire about the DVD: "It’s basically tracking the whole thing through our own eyes and words, because no one has really heard our side of the story. Other people have just talked about it themselves. We’ve always been pretty private about it. So now people are going to get to see visually what we went through."
The singer added that the DVD will contain performances from the band's sets at key events like the Download festival, Rock In Rio, Rock On The Range and others.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD will tour Southeast Asia and China in January and will tentatively start writing music for the follow-up to last year's "Hail To The King" next summer.
