Avenged Sevenfold just released an unexpectedly awesome cover of Del Shannon’s classic “Runaway”. The song features Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals on guitar, and it’s completely different from anything else I’ve heard from the band. Give the track a listen below.
Here’s what Warren to say about getting the opportunity to record with A7X:
“I’ve known the Avenged Sevenfold guys for years and obviously Brooks played with The Vandals, and our bands are both from Huntington Beach, so the ties run deep. But I was still surprised and honored that they asked me to play on the track. I think it’s a really cool choice for a cover and the guys were very generous in the studio. They’re all incredible musicians and to have them say, ‘Do what you do,’ was really flattering. So I did, and we had a blast, and I’m tickled to death with how it all turned out.”
Avenged Sevenfold released their latest album The Stage in 2016. It was their first release to feature Brooks Wackerman (formerly of Bad Religion) on drums.
