(Warner) Avenged Sevenfold (comprising M. Shadows, Synyster Gates, Zacky Vengeance, Brooks Wackerman and Johnny Christ) release their new song "We Love You" - an ode to decrying the rat race.

A frenetic dynamic rollercoaster riddled with hooks, peaks and valleys; A7X's latest comes with an innovative 360 VR music video. The band's highly anticipated eighth album, Life Is But a Dream..., drops June 2 via Warner Records.

"More power, more pace, more money, more taste," M. Shadows delivers the unforgettable lyrics portraying the tune inside our heads that keep us pushing and being the motivators and destroyers of our self and reality. The song depicts the forced feeling our society pushes us to consume, push, stretch and empty everything we can, resulting in possibly our own downfall if not halted. Avenged Sevenfold are masters at dynamic transitions over the course of one song, and this is no exception.

The music video for "We Love You" is no less ambitious. Artist Ryan McKinnon, using Unreal Engine, has crafted an enveloping, innovative visual experience for fans, which has been optimized for Oculus in VR and 360 on YouTube. The visualizer begins in peaceful nature before the pressure of society takes over and the world starts building at a crazy pace.

Avenged Sevenfold will support the upcoming Life Is But a Dream... album with multiple massive live shows this year which include headlining the Welcome To Rockville festival on May 19th in Daytona, FL followed by another headlining set at Sonic Temple in Columbus, Ohio on May 26th. The band will bring it back home to California with an arena show at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles on June 9th for their first time playing Los Angeles county since 2008, before taking over Madison Square Garden on June 23, for their first New York City appearance since 2007. But that's just the beginning. This summer, the band is taking off on a North American tour with Alexisonfire, Falling In Reverse and Kim Dracula.
