AVENGED SEVENFOLD guitarist Zacky Vengeance has issued the following update:

"It's kind of funny to wake up and see the words AVENGED SEVENFOLD at the No. 4 spot on the Billboard top 200. Right next to THE EAGLES and a BRITNEY/CARRIE UNDERWOOD threesome. I don't know about you, but it puts a smirk on my face just knowing that our fans tattooed it right on the foreheads of everyone who would quickly disregard the name AVENGED SEVENFOLD (like we aren't a fucking force to be reckoned with, Haha). So once again thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

"MTV has decided to debut our video for 'Almost Easy' on 'TRL', which makes me believe that someone over at MTV is screaming for something real.

"I'll be honest with you: When I roll out of bed every morning my goal in life isn't to be alongside pop stars or actors and actresses or on the cover of the national Enquirer. It sure does feel good, though, to surprise all those people that don't even know what 'an A7X' is by putting them right behind us on the countdown or going home with their moonman.

"With that said, if you wanna vote and bury whatever else they're playing at the moment you can do that here. If not, we're still coming to your city to kick ass and have a great fucking time with all of you.

"Thank you all again for every ounce of support love and respect!"

AVENGED SEVENFOLD's new self-titled album sold 94,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The disc was released as both a standard CD and an interactive MVI featuring a documentary, an animated short, a tour of the recording studio, a fan contest segment, MP3s of all tracks on the album, ringtone software and more.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD hails from Orange County, California.
