Synyster Gates chatted with Loudwire Nights and talked about Avenged Sevenfold being in the early stages of working on their next album.
“We’re definitely working on stuff and I’m really excited about the stuff that we’re working on,” revealed Gates. “We’re not full, in the throes, shoulder to shoulder writing music yet but we’re exchanging ideas and hanging and we’re very much interested … in the brainstorming aspect, the meeting of the minds kind of thing that we do before we write a record.”
The guitarist continued, “We all come together and philosophize and pontificate to each other and just kind of say, ‘Hey, I want it to sound like this. What do you want it to sound like?’ The coolest thing is, we are such on the same page like never before. Our best records and my favorites and certainly the most successful have been where we’re all on the same page. So I’m excited about it. We don’t have much to show for it yet. It’s still early on, but we’re working on a bunch of stuff.”
