(RockAAA) Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Synyster Gates says the band did consider calling time on the band when drummer Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan died two-years ago only to be encouraged to continue by their fans and by Sullivan's family.

Gates admits there was a two-week spell immediately following The Rev's sudden passing when they pondered walking away from the band only be pulled back from the brink with messages of support.

In an interview with Dave Kim of the Grand Rapids, Michigan radio station WGRD 97.9 FM Gates revealed: "Yeah, for two weeks we had pretty much thrown in the towel but our fans are the best and they said 'hey you can do it, we want to hear the music and Jimmy's spirit,' and it was likewise with his family who basically said we had no choice and had to do it for them."
