AVENGED SEVENFOLD Released Cover Of The Rolling Stones’ “As Tears Go By”

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.
