Hail To The King is the follow up to Avenged Sevenfoldâs 5th studio album, Nightmare, which earned the band its highest ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it took the number one spot. Throughout 2010 and 2011 Avenged Sevenfold toured the world nonstop. They have achieved Diamond, Platinum and Gold awards for album sales in nearly a dozen countries, sold out arenas the world over and headlined some of the worldâs biggest and most prestigious music festivals playing to over one million people.

Avenged Sevenfold made an unprecedented appearance as characters in the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 video game in November 2012.

On August 26th, one day before the release of Hail To The King, Avenged Sevenfold will play a free show for their fans at the Hollywood Palladium.
