Zacky Vengeance talks to the Daily Star about believing that Post Malone could lead the way for a new wave of rappers to play Download Festival and Avenged Sevenfold lending a voice to what’s shaping the world.
AVENGED Sevenfold believe a new wave of rap stars will hit Download Festival thanks to Post Malone.
Guitarist Zacky Vengeance told me: “There’s this underground swell of hip hop artists who are taking on the role of the new punk rockers. I think Post Malone is awesome because he’s an unlikely rock star. It’s not often you see a Jewish dude who grew up in the metal scene dominating the hip hop charts across the world. It’d be fun to see where his head is at.”
It’s been less than two years since A7X’s last album The Stage but Zacky confirmed the Cali five-piece are already talking new tunes: “I think it’s important for us to lend our voice to what’s shaping the world socially and politically.”
