(Gibson) Avenged Sevenfold's new music video for their latest single, "So Far Away," is a tribute to late drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, who died in December of 2009 from an unintentional overdose of prescription drugs.

The song, which appears on the band's current full-length Nightmare, is a "very personal goodbye" to Sullivan, states a press release from the group.

"This video is a raw and emotional tribute to Avenged Sevenfold's late drummer Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan and celebrates the long-time friendship the band members have shared since forming A7X in Huntington Beach, CA, in 1999," the release reads. "The video was directed by Wayne Isham, who has directed videos for such artists as Metallica, Megadeth, and Def Leppard, among many others. The heartfelt quality of the video is in keeping with the emotional resonance of the song, a very personal goodbye to Sullivan that appears on the band's album Nightmare." Check it out here
