Yesterday M Shadows and Synyster Gates stopped by Hard Drive Radio where they spilled some details on their upcoming release (mixed by Andy Wallace) to be entitled “Nightmare.” We’ll post the interview once it’s uploaded to the Hard Drive website.
The new album, “Nightmare,” is dedicated to his memory and although it’s not exactly a concept album, it does center around The Rev. The eeriest thing about it is there is a song on the album called “Fiction” (a nickname The Rev gave himself) which started out with the title “Death.” And the song was the last song The Rev wrote for the album, and when he handed it in, he said, that’s it, that’s the last song for this record. And then 3 days later, he died. The guys have been in town mixing the album and are almost half completed with Andy Wallace. Meanwhile, watch for a video interview with Matt on our website, coming soon.
