Could New A7X U.K. Dates Mean U.S. Tour Announcement Soon?

Avenged Sevenfold has been very low-key since the end of the tour cycle for 2013’s Hail To The King and have only scheduled sporadic shows, until today.

The band unveiled a series of U.K. tour dates (with Disturbed and In Flames, no less) slated for January 2017, and they’ve really been the first real sign of something major for A7X.  Fingers crossed we’ll hear about a more-extensive U.S. tour in the very near future.

Of course, A7X have been hard at work on their follow-up to Hail To The King, especially since bringing drummer Brooks Wackerman into the fold after the departure of Arin Ilejay. In late March, they posted the video below from their recording studio.
