Avenged Sevenfold pays tribute to 'The Rev' in new video!
'So Far Away' is the new single from the A7X album Nightmare. The video debuted today. It's a tribute to their fallen band member Rev. Let me know what you think!
From the press release...
"The video is a raw and emotional tribute to the bandâs late drummer Jimmy âThe Revâ Sullivan and celebrates the long-time friendship the band members have shared since forming Avenged Sevenfold in Huntington Beach, CA, in 1999. The video was directed by Wayne Isham, who has directed videos for such artists as Metallica, MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e, Megadeth, and Def Leppard, among many others.Â
Â The heartfelt quality of the video is in keeping with the emotional resonance of the song, a very personal goodbye to Sullivan that appears on the bandâs gold album Nightmare."
