Avenged Sevenfold recently announced the release date for their forthcoming album, Hail To The King, to be August 27th. It also appears the band is gearing up for a very busy rest of 2013, which includes a tour, a mobile game, AND a six-episode animated series to accompany the game.
This letter found on the band's website explains more:
I wanted to start off by thanking those of you who came out to the 3 shows we did this weekend. We had a great time getting out of the studio and preparing for our “Hail to the King” album release. We are excited about the 27th and we hope you all are as well.
The reason I’m writing this is to shed some light on a few things we will be doing this fall besides touring and promoting “Hail to the King. First I would like to let you all know that for the past 18 months we have been writing and developing an IOS / Android based mobile Avenged Sevenfold game.
Without revealing too much I will just say that it is an action adventure game. It has been written and developed by the band and with our friends in Subscience Studios. It’s turning out awesome. We can’t wait to show you more when it’s ready.
What we can show you though is a trailer for the new “Hail to the King” animated series that we and our friends at Machinima have been working on. The game and the series will go hand in hand with each other. We hope you enjoy them both because I know we have had a great time developing them.
