About Avenged Sevenfold
To date, Avenged Sevenfold have sold over 10 million albums worldwide and earned two consecutive No. 1 albums on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart (2010’s Nightmare and 2013’s Hail To The King) to go along with over a billion video views and a billion-plus Spotify streams, as well as multiple No. 1 singles on rock radio. The band (comprising M. Shadows, Synyster Gates, Zacky Vengeance, Johnny Christ and Brooks Wackerman) are equally known for their spectacular live shows, selling out arenas and headlining the world’s most prestigious rock festivals as well as always being at the forefront of rapidly changing technology, cultural mile markers, and new ways for communities to engage.
Alexisonfire rose up out of the Southern Ontario underground in late 2001 to become one of the most successful indie bands to come out of Canada. The band has sold over one million records and released five hugely successful studio albums, with four achieving certification: Alexisonfire (2002), Watch Out (2004), Crisis (2006) and Old Crows / Young Cardinals (2009). Crisis debuted at No. 1 on the Top 200 Soundscan (Canada), and Old Crows / Young Cardinals debuted at No. 2, and charted at No. 9 on the U.S. Billboard Independent Album chart. Watch Out helped garner a “New Group of the Year” JUNO in 2004. The band has performed to hundreds of thousands of fans on iconic stages worldwide, and graced notable music magazine covers internationally. Their long-anticipated and first full-length album in over 13 years, Otherness, was released earlier this year to international acclaim and took home “Rock Album of The Year” at the 2023 JUNO Awards.
