Avenged Sevenfold has a lot of plans in store for the rest of 2014, but first on the band's to-do list is the long-awaited arrival of its mobile video game, Hail To The King: Deathbat. The game has been two years in the making and singer M. Shadows told us where things are at: "It's gonna be a big game. It's really pushing the boundaries of mobile in a lot of technical ways. Right now we're just working out the bugs. You know, there's some people sitting in a dark room somewhere just playing the game over and over and sending us notes on it. So that's kind of where it stands." playing some old shows at The Henry Fonda Theater in L.A., and the Ventura Theater. We’ll put together a cool DVD and some demo tracks and re-release Waking The Fallenfor newer fans of the band that haven’t gotten that or don’t know about the history of the band."
- Also in the works is a brand new DVD that will feature footage shot during the past five years' world tours as well as some upcoming shows.
- Avenged Sevenfold will head out next month on a spring North American headlining trek dubbed the Shepherd Of Fire Tour in honor of the band's current single.
- The dates will kick off on April 12th in British Columbia, hitting arenas in the United States and Canada as well as several major festivals before winding down on May 17th at Columbus, Ohio's Rock On The Range blowout. Support on the headlining dates will come from Hellyeah.
- The song "Shepherd Of Fire" is taken from Avenged Sevenfold's 2013 album, Hail To The King. The single is the band's second consecutive chart-topper on the Active Rock radio chart, following the album's title track.
