Avenged Sevenfold To Headline Summer Slaughter Tour 2011

California modern metal act Avenged Sevenfold has announced that it will be the featured headline act of this year's forthcoming Summer Slaughter touring festival. The band commented on the joining the annual extreme music tour by saying:

"Avenged Sevenfold are more than thrilled to be a part of the upcoming Summer Slaughter tour. To be headlining such an extreme and aggressive event is an honor for us and we will surely need to bring our A-game to survive this one. Death metal and grind have always been very close to our hearts and death metal has been especially significant in the crafting of our sound over the years to where we are today. We are really looking forward to be joining this diverse tour and to be performing in front of a whole new audience that we haven't been able to reach before. We have no doubts that the death metal fans will embrace us with open arms and we look forward to dominating that genre of metal as well, we are just slightly worried the Summer Slaughter fanbase won't be able to keep up with our unique metal style. See you on tour!"

I'd pay double the going rate to actually see this happen. Saw Necro perform after Amon Amarth on Sounds of the Underground and I'm sure you can guess how the crowd reacted.

This is an april fools. Avenged Sevenfold has different plans in July/August + all the bands are already announced on the official Facebook of Summer Slaughter.

And last but not least, Avenged Sevenfold would never post this: "We have no doubts that the death metal fans will embrace us with open arms and we look forward to dominating that genre of metal as well, we are just slightly worried the Summer Slaughter fanbase won't be able to keep up with our unique metal style. See you on tour!"

Try harder next year!

Yep, the bands certainly appear to be out, and I think it's legitimate. If not someone put some SERIOUS time into photoshopping a flyer for it. This story's not as far from the truth as I might like it to be.

Dude...I can understand hating WC but TBDM? Who DOESN'T like TBDM? My favorite bands include Opeth and Decrepit Birth and Suffocation and such, and I even like TBDM. They aren't brutal or anything, but they are one of like, well, one good deathcore band. Trevor is a God? Seriously, look at his lyrics for Christ Deformed and I Will Return, not to mention most of his lyrics are written in iambic tetrameter, which is not an easy thing to do...anyway, yeah, f*** A7X, fags lol. Not that this year's lineup for SS is particularly good overall anyway, but still haha. Personally, I liked the Nightwish article the best
