Avenged Sevenfold have begun writing the follow up to their 'Nightmare' album, which was as a tribute to late drummer Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan and released in July 2012. This will be their sixth studio album.
Singer M. Shadows told The Pulse of Radio: "I try not to say too much about the album because you know how the Internet world is, so I'll just say this: We have a direction, we're sticking to that direction and we feel really very happy writing in these terms that we've laid out for ourselves."

He went on to add: "The album is coming along very nicely. We're excited to get in the studio. We have about six songs that I'm really happy with right now, and we're continuing to write every single day."
The band showed signs of their continuance recently with the release of the new track 'Carry On,' which was tied to the Call of Duty: Black Ops II video game.
As for the new disc, the current estimate is to expect a new Avenged Sevenfold release by June or July of next year.
