Frontman M. Shadows tells Loudwire that: “We’re going to put something together for the 10-year anniversary of Waking The Fallen, which is about 11 or 12 years now. We’ve been trying to think of something we could put together and we found some old demos that we did with Teppei [Teranishi] from Thrice before we even did that record. We also found some old footage with Jimmy [Sullivan] (late Avenged Sevenfold drummer) 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 Fallen for newer fans of the band that haven’t gotten that or don’t know about the history of the band.”
In addition to the reissue, Avenged Sevenfold is also planning to release a new DVD. Shadows continues: “It is going to encompass the whole world that we’ve been filming for the last five years being in all these different countries with our camera guy. That’ll be a fun thing. I think we’re going to film some big shows. I think we’re filming Mexico City coming up and we have some other shows we’re going to film and kind of intertwine the live performance with this huge DVD we want to do. That will probably come out before Christmas.”
A release date is not certain for the reissue, but you can expect an official drop date in the upcoming months. Until then, check out the official music video from Waking the Fallen’s “Unholy Confessions” below.
