Avenged Sevenfold's new album available for pre-order

An exclusive digital edition of Avenged Sevenfold's upcoming album Nightmare will be available for pre-order beginning on Tuesday, June 29th, on the iTunes Store. The Southern California band's fifth studio album, produced by Mike Elizondo, is due from Warner Bros. Records on July 27th.

In addition to the full Nightmare digital album, this very special iTunes edition is jam-packed with features including a non album exclusive bonus track ("Lost It All"), 20 exclusive photos, the "Nightmare" music video plus its written treatment, behind the scenes footage from the video shoot, the "Nightmare" lyric video, an audio interview with album producer Mike Elizondo, type-set lyrics with hand-written notes for "Lost It All," and sketches of the album art concept.

Avenged Sevenfold are riding high on the success of Nightmare's first single and title track, which has enjoyed airplay at Active Rock, Mainstream, and Modern Rock radio stations across the country and was the No. 1 Rock Song on iTunes in the U.S. and the U.K. in its debut week. A lyric video of "Nightmare" that premiered via YouTube on the band's website received more than 275,000 plays in 24 hours and has since racked up more than two million views.

In August, Avenged Sevenfold will set out co-headlining the first annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival with Disturbed. Also on the bill are Stone Sour, Halestorm, and Hell Yeah. The UPROAR tour, which will hit amphitheatres and arenas, marks the band's first tour since the passing of beloved friend and drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan. Mike Portnoy from Dream Theatre plays drums on Nightmare and will also tour with the band for UPROAR. Please visit
