(TeamRock Radio) Avenged Sevenfold's Johnny Christ says working on the reissue of the band's second album Waking The Fallen has made him take stock of their success.
The bassist recalls handing out free demos around the time they recorded the 2003 record, set for relaunch in the form of Waking The Fallen: Resurrected. Christ tells Loudwire: "There was a time when we were in a van and handing out CDs at Warped Tour. We had a two-song EP that we were handing out for free, just to promote ourselves. That's a very different thing than where we are at now."
The reissue includes a DVD which features footage of the band with drummer The Rev, who died in 2009. Although seeing his late friend in film still hurts, Christ says the pain is easing with time.
"Any time we see stuff with Jimmy it's bittersweet," the bassist reports. more.
