This should be of interest to Avenged Sevenfold fans: "Welcome to the Family," the new single from the band's gold album Nightmare, has climbed to No. 1 at BDS Active Rock format in the U.S. this week.
This is the band's second No. 1 at the format from Nightmare, which earned A7X its highest-ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it bowed at No. 1. Nightmare also topped Billboard's Rock, Hard Rock, and Digital charts.
"Nightmare" was one of the most played current songs at Media Base Active Rock for 2010. The band continues to sell out arenas around the world.
Produced by Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Eminem) and mixed by notedengineer Andy Wallace, Nightmare was in the works when the band's beloved drummer, Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, passed away.
Avenged Sevenfold are currently on the road for their "Nightmare After Christmas" Tour, which wraps up on February 13th.
