Avenged Sevenfold- The Stage!
I was checking out the band’s website and the first thing you see when you go to it is this video. I love what they did here. It’s just a great video with a really good song. Anyway, the band is supposed to announce details about their new album and tour on October 27. Rumor has it that the name of the album is Voltaic Oceans and is supposed to drop December 9. Either way enjoy the song and the video.
Last week’s Rockucation question: This band’s founding members dissolved the band called Wicked Lester. Who is the band?
Who is the band? Answer: KISS.
Winner/s: Mick Michaels, Philadelphia, PA, Kamran Khan, Seekonk, MA, Ron Lariviere, North Providence, RI
This week’s Rockucation question is: What band changed its name to The High Numbers, based on their manager’s influence? The manager wanted to the band to take advantage of the Mod Scene. The change failed and the band went back to their original name. Who was the band?
