Avenged Sevenfold's 'Voltaic Oceans' Made Up By Chris Jericho

Avenged Sevenfold

(Metal Hammer) Chris Jericho has revealed how he and M Shadows plotted to keep the release of Avenged Sevenfold's new album a secret. The Fozzy frontman and WWE wrestler appeared to accidentally leak the title and release date of the seventh Avenged Sevenfold album.

His Instagram post led to speculation that the record would be called Voltaic Oceans and that it would launch on December 9. In fact, the album is titled The Stage and it was 'sneak released' last week.

Jericho admits that his Instagram post was a deliberate attempt to throw people off the scent of the album's actual release details. On his Talk Is Jericho podcast, he says: "It worked so perfectly, we fooled everybody. We were the masters of puppets pulling the strings for all of the media and throwing everybody off the scent of The Stage.

"I just posted this Deathbat with December 09, 2016, and then I put a hashtag of 'voltaicoceans' which people were then deciding that would be the name of the record - 'Voltaic Oceans is out December 9, 2016.'

"And then I pulled it a couple hours later after posting it and suddenly it went viral. I made up the whole thing. Voltaic Oceans, I just made it up." Read more here.
