Avenged Sevenfold To Release New Album 'Hail To The King' On August 27; Album Artwork Revealed

Avenged Sevenfold will release its sixth studio album titled "Hail To The King" on August 27. The album title and artwork (seen above) were revealed on Wednesday following an online scavenger hunt that led fans to various websites in search of "puzzle pieces."

The band will celebrate the launch of Hail To The King by playing a free show at the Hollywood Palladium on August 26.

Hail To The King will mark Avenged Sevenfold's first album to feature drummer Arin Ilejay, formerly of Confide. Ilejay will serve as a full-time replacement for the band's original drummer, Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, who passed away in 2009. 

The band's last full-length release came in 2010 with Nightmare, which featured Dream Theater founder Mike Portnoy on drums and has since sold over 500,000 copies.
