Avenged Sevenfold have unleashed their brand new studio album, The Stage.

Following months of speculation and rumours, the band have shared the album with absolutely no prior notice whatsoever. The 11-track LP, which features the previously released title track, is now available to stream and buy the world over.

The album will be supported by a huge world tour, which is set to hit European soil next year alongside special guests Chevelle and Disturbed. Listen to The Stage in its entirety below.
