“Hail To The King” will be released on August 27. The long-awaited follow-up to 2010’s “Nightmare” was once again produced by Mike Elizondo and is the first to be wholly written without drummer and key songwriter James “The Rev” Sullivan, who died in December 2009. Sullivan has since been replaced by Arin Ilejay, a former member of CONFIDE.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s new album, “Hail To The King”, is available for streaming in its entirety via iTunes.

Says AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows: “We have been waiting to show you all our brand new album, ‘Hail To The King’, for far too long. It took us nine months of writing, recording and preparation so that we could put out an album we are all proud of from start to finish.

“Well, I’m excited to announce that the wait is over. We have teamed up with our friends at iTunes to start streaming the full album right now until it’s released. The stream is high quality and you can listen to the whole album as many times as you’d like.

“So plug in your best set of headphones and turn it up to 10. Head over there now to listen and preorder. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. See you all on the road!”

“Hail To The King” lyrics:

Watch your tongue or have it cut from your head
Save your life by keeping whispers unsaid
Children roam the streets now orphans of war
Bodies hanging in the streets to adore
Royal flames will carve a path in chaos, bringing daylight to the night
Death is riding into town with armor, they’ve come to take all your rights

Hail to the King
Hail to the One
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun
Hail to the King
Hail, Hail, Hail the King

Blood is spilt while holding keys to the throne.
Born again but it’s too late to atone.
No mercy — from the edge of the blade
Dare escape and learn the price to be paid
Let the water flow with shades of red now, Arrows black out all the light
Death is riding into town with armor, they’ve come to grant you your rights

Hail to the King
Hail to the One
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun
Hail to the King
Hail, Hail, Hail the King

There’s a taste of fear
When the henchmen call
Iron fist to tame the land
Iron fist to claim it all

Hail to the King
Hail to the One
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun
Hail to the King
Hail, Hail, Hail the King
