Avenged Sevenfold will release a new EP containing all four songs the band has written and recorded for the Call Of Duty: Black Ops video game franchise, according to Kerrang!. Frontman M. Shadows told the U.K. magazine, "We just felt these songs needed a place to live, instead of being scattered all over streaming services. We will also be releasing 'Jade Helm', which is the multiplayer score we did for Black Ops 3. Until now, that has only been available on YouTube and in the game."
The EP will include a new Avenged Sevenfold song which was recently teased in a leaked trailer for the Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 video game. Shadows stated about the track, "The song is dark and brooding. We wanted to capture a difference feeling than a straight-ahead 'zombie killer' track. These songs are good places for us to experiment with our sound. I would put this in the category of 'dark alternative.'"
Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 is scheduled to come to PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 12th. Avenged Sevenfold has contributed music to the previous three installments of the game series, and even appears as avatars in the second chapter, when they can be seen performing the song "Carry On" in an epilogue after the closing credits.
The last new song Avenged Sevenfold released, called "Dose," appeared last year in both the mobile game Dungeon Hunter 5 and the deluxe edition of the band's 2016 album, The Stage. The Southern California band will probably start working on its eighth studio LP this fall for a 2019 release.
