AVENGED SEVENFOLD Bassist Interviewed By Germany’s METAL HAMMER (Video)

AVENGED SEVENFOLD bassist Johnny Christ spoke to the German edition of Metal Hammer magazine at the Rock am Ring festival, which took place June 3-5, 2011 in Nürburgring, Germany. You can now watch the chat below.

AVENGED recently premiered a music video for its latest single, “So Far Away”, which is a tribute to the band’s late drummer James “Rev” Sullivan, who died from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.

Following Sullivan‘s death, the band recruited his favorite drummer, ex-DREAM THEATER member Mike Portnoy, to record the drum tracks for its latest album, “Nightmare”, and tour with the band through 2010.

The group recently recruited new drummer Arin Ilejay, who has also recorded a new song with the band called “Not Ready To Die” for the Call Of Duty: Black Ops video game.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD will be on tour in Europe and Australia throughout June, July and early August before coming home to headline the Rockstar Uproar Festival tour, which will kick off on August 26.
