“Nobody” is the first offering off of Avenged Sevenfold’s forthcoming eighth studio album, Life Is But a Dream..., slated for release on June 2, their first collection of new music since 2016’s The Stage. Check out the new video below from the mind of award-winning director Chris Hopewell. Album pre-orders are available HERE.

Written and recorded over the last four years, according to a press release Life Is But a Dream... was inspired by the writing and philosophy of Albert Camus, with lyrics rooted in existentialism and absurdism. The band has also partnered with Berify for this release to include an NFC tag with bonus content on all CDs, vinyl, cassettes, and other official merch sold on A7XWorld.com.

On top of the new single and upcoming album news, A7X have announced they will be supporting the release with two huge shows on the East and West coasts this summer on top of their previously announced, totally not canceled festival appearances; one at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles on June 9 and the other at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on June 23.

Both headlining shows will also feature special guests Falling In Reverse and Pussy Riot as openers. Tickets will be available beginning Friday, March 17. Avenged Sevenfold has also been confirmed for Aftershock 2023.
