AVENGED SEVENFOLD have revealed to Kerrang! magazine that their days of shit-talking about other bands are over. The California-based group, who had a run-in with ATREYU last year, put their new attitude down to being more mature. "We don’t slag off any bands anymore because we’re more mature and we're over it now," confessed frontman M. Shadows. "Some of the things we said looked worse than we meant them," added guitarist Zacky Vengeance. They're also determined not to rise to public fall-outs when other bands bait them. "Ninety percent of the bands who have talked shit about us in magazines have asked to be on tour with us," laughed Shadows. "One band who we talked shit about was told by their record company to talk shit back about us just so they could make a story and get some press out of it. It's all politics and bullshit and we're not going to mention other bands' names anymore because we don't want them to get the free publicity."
AVENGED SEVENFOLD's Warner Bros. debut, "City of Evil", was certified gold in January by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for shipments in excess of 500,000 copies. The group's third album, "City Of Evil" is the follow-up to 2003's "Waking the Fallen", which was issued through Hopeless Records.
