The other day, Avenged Sevenfold uploaded a teaser onto YouTube that featured some cryptic visuals, text, and a countdown clock. Well, that countdown clock has finally come to an end and we now know what the band was teasing.

As of today, the band is excited to share details pertaining to their upcoming eighth studio album, titled Life Is But a Dream. The band has also released the first single off the album, which is titled “Nobody.”

In regard to their new single and the upcoming album, Avenged Sevenfold share the following comments:

“We’re thrilled to announce our new album, Life Is But A Dream… available June 2, 2023.

“Watch our official stop-motion video for ‘Nobody’ – directed by Chris Hopewell. Stop motion is a handmade labor of love, often taking 90 minutes just to capture only 2 seconds of footage.

“‘Nobody’ is streaming everywhere now. The new album was written and recorded over the span of four years, and inspired by the writing and philosophy of Albert Camus.

“Our good friend and brilliant artist, Wes Lang, encapsulated our theme of existentialism through visual art for the album packaging.”

The stop-motion music video is super cool looking. If you want to check out the music video for Avenged Sevenfold’s new song “Nobody,” you can check it out on the band’s Facebook page, or you can check it out via the YouTube player below.
