So granted, this could be the band just fucking with us, but Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows has uploaded a video that features band guitarist Synyster Gates beatboxing, and we have to wonder – could this be hinting at something on the new A7X record?
Alongside the upload of this video, Shadows wrote in his tweet: “To troll or not to troll? . Guess we’ll find out”
So while there is a chance he and the band are just messing with us, there is technically a possibility that the band may in fact have some beatboxing on the new Avenged Sevenfold album. You can watch that video of Synyster Gates beatboxing below:

This past February, Shadows shared that the upcoming new Avenged Sevenfold album was “90% done.” In a past Instagram post of his, band drummer Brooks Wackerman also shared news of the orchestral work, sharing a photo on Instagram that includes the following caption:
“Well… this Happened on Tuesday. We-Avenged Sevenfold- started writing this record 4 years ago and I can’t believe we are 90% done…One of the perks-in the creative process- is that we are able to track a 78 piece orchestra on our records. The fact that we are able to bring incredible musicians together to enhance our art still gives me chills.. I can’t wait for the the world to hear this.. all I can say it’s unlike Anything we’ve ever released.. ALRIGHT and good night!”
