BREAKING NEWS:AVENGED SEVENFOLD TO OPEN LONDON POP-UP STORE 12th January 2017
Avenged Sevenfold have announced a treat for their UK fans. From Friday 20th January until Monday 23rd the band will be setting up a pop-up shop – Vlauder Lauders General Store - in London's Camden Market to coincide with their two live dates at the 02 Arena.
The shop will be based at Camden Market, 215-216 Chalk Farm Road, London, NW1 8AB and will be open 10.00am until 6.00pm.
The shop will be hosting in-store raffles and giveaways of exclusive and signed merchandise every hour on the hour, so fans are advised to check in frequently. Every purchase made at the store also comes with enter-to-win surprise gifts.
In addition, world-renowned painter, sculptor and designer Cam Rackam, from Huntington Beach CA, who collaborated with the band on the 'Hail To The King' and 'Nightmare' album artwork, will be in-store creating art pieces in front of a live audience.
Avenged Sevenfold kicked off their ten date UK tour on 7th January in Dublin and as well as being MetalTalk's first 2017 Gig Of The Week, The Guardian commented that "the five-piece methodically discharge booming, arena-filling songs that are as hefty as they are heavy".
In October last year Avenged Sevenfold played a groundbreaking live 360 Virtual Reality gig on the roof of Capitol Records in LA after which they surprised fans with the announcement that their new album, 'The Stage' – their first for Capitol Records - would be available that night. Previously they had made headlines with the release of the title track, co-produced by the band and Joe Barresi (Queens Of The Stone Age, Tool) and a companion video directed by Chris Hopewell (Radiohead, The Killers), which has already amassed well over twelve million YouTube views.
