Avenged Sevenfold Tops All Rock Album Charts With The Stage

Avenged Sevenfold

Avenged Sevenfold enjoyed a big first week with their surprise album release "The Stage", which has topped all three of Billboard Magazine's rock album charts.

The album hit stores on October 28th without a prior announcement from the band and has now claimed the no. 1 spot on the Top Rock Albums, Alternative Albums and Hard Rock Albums charts, and came in at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 Chart (overall sales and streaming).

Guitarist Zacky Vengeance was featured a recent installment of the Whiplash podcast and had the following to say about the surprise album release, "We wanted to do something very, very special for our fans this day of age, and we put a lot of thought, care and consideration into not trying to drop breadcrumbs for them for months and bore them, and give them an event that they deserve. So we're really excited about it."

He also said, "The old world order of putting out four singles before you release an album is so boring to us. We certainly don't know if this is the right way to go about it, but our fans seem to be enjoying it thus far." Listen to the full interview here.
