Avenged Sevenfold Taking A Long Break In 2012

Between the loss of their drummer Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan and the success of the album ‘Nightmare’, Avenged Sevenfold has had a loaded couple of years . Now that their touring schedule is winding down, the band is looking forward to some time apart in 2012.

Much like the comments recently made by 30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto, A7X vocalist M. Shadows told Pulse of Radio:

“I think bands burn themselves out. I mean, look what happened to Disturbed. You get caught up in the ‘do a record, tour for two years, do a record, tour for two years.’ We just need to make sure everybody’s mentally in the right spot before we start writing and doing a new record. [We’ll] take six, seven months and just sit around. If we decide to write, we will, if we decide not to, we won’t”

Shadows is referring to the looming (and potentially permanent) hiatus that Disturbed is preparing to take after their tour obligations have been fulfilled. Avenged Sevenfold is currently headlining the Rockstar Uproar festival, click here for tour dates.
