Avenged Sevenfold announces 15th Dec as release date for deluxe version of 'The Stage'
Avenged Sevenfold have announced a December 15th release date for the deluxe version of their critically acclaimed album, The Stage (Capitol). This new edition features 7 additional studio songs + 4 unreleased live tracks recorded during the band’s recent shows at The O2 arena in London. Among the 7 bonus tracks is the band’s stunning cover of the Pink Floyd classic, “Wish You Were Here,” which was released today and can be heard HERE. Both the digital and physical deluxe versions of The Stage can be pre-ordered HERE (note: the CD and vinyl versions of the album will include a special lenticular cover).
“Wish You Were Here” is the latest in a series of new songs released by the band over the course of the past few months, but until now have been unavailable for purchase. Those tracks include Mexican folk song “Malagueña Salerosa,” a re-imagining of Mr. Bungle’s “Retrovertigo,” original track “Dose,” a cover of Del Shannon’s 1961 No. 1 hit, “Runaway” (featuring a guest appearance by Vandals’ guitarist Warren Fitzgerald and lead vocals by Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Zacky Vengeance), the band’s version of The Beach Boys’ 1966 hit, “God Only Knows” and most recently, their rendition of the Rolling Stones’ “As Tears Go By.” The four concert recordings are all live versions of fan favourites from The Stage, including the title track, “Paradigm,” “Sunny Disposition” and “God Damn.”
