Avenged Sevenfold have just released the sixth song in their evolving tracklist of their album “The Stage.” This time it is a cover of the Rolling Stones’ song “As Tears Go By.” The cover is a more upbeat version of the song, with lead guitarist, Synyster Gates, accompanying singer, M. Shadows, with harmonizing vocals.
Speaking on the cover M. Shadows said: “We really got into some of the deeper Rolling Stones tracks during the writing process for ‘Hail To The King.'” He continued with: “This song always stood out because of the melody and fragile state of Mick Jagger’s vocal and the interesting string section in the bridge. We took a more uptempo rock ‘n’ roll approach and added the sitar as a little nod to the experimentation of the ’60s.”

M. Shadows confirmed that the band will embark on a North American headlining tour throughout January and February. The tour is set to be announced later this month supposedly.
