A trailer for the "Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4" video game, featuring a new AVENGED SEVENFOLD song, has been leaked online.
The trailer was originally played at a Gamestop managers convention but was filmed by a member of the audience and uploaded to Reddit.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD bassist Johnny Christ told HardDrive Radio about the band's new track: "It's a fun song — it's a little bit of a departure from I think what our fans would expect, but I guess that also makes sense because they expect crazy from us now."
"Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4" is scheduled to come to PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 12.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD contributed music to the previous three installments of the game series, and even appears (virtually) in the second chapter, when they can be seen performing the song "Carry On" in an epilogue after the closing credits.
The "Call Of Duty" song will be the first original material AVENGED SEVENFOLD has released since last year's "Dose", which originally surfaced in the Gameloft mobile game "Dungeon Hunter 5". It later appeared on the "deluxe edition" 2017 reissue of the group's 2016 studio album, "The Stage".
AVENGED SEVENFOLD will probably start working on its eighth studio LP this fall for a 2019 release.
The band recently canceled its summer tour with PROPHETS OF RAGE and THREE DAYS GRACE after singer M. Shadows was struck by a viral infection that left him "voiceless."
