September 21, 2018 – AVENGED SEVENFOLD has released an action-packed companion video to new track “Mad Hatter” (Warner Bros. Records) featuring footage from the upcoming Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4 game

“Mad Hatter” is the fourth consecutive Call of Duty®: Black Ops collaboration between developer Treyarch and Avenged Sevenfold following “Not Ready To Die” (featured in Call Of Duty: Black Ops) “Carry On” (Call Of Duty®: Black Ops II) and “Jade Helm” (Call Of Duty®: Black Ops III exclusively). All four tracks are featured on Avenged Sevenfold’s new EP, Black Reign, which was released today and can be downloaded/streamed HERE.

Released earlier this week, “Mad Hatter” has been drawing rave reviews from fans and critics alike, with Consequence Of Sound declaring it a “heavy hitter” and Revolver lauding the track for “packing everything that fans love about A7X’s music in a tight package.” About the “Mad Hatter” creative process, singer M Shadows says, “Watching the initial trailers and looking at production sketches reminded me of the ‘S-Town’ podcast and its main protagonist, John B. McLemore, who was rumored to have suffered from mercury poisoning, or Mad Hatter disease. The idea of Mad Hatter and what it does to the brain is as frightening as the images we were shown. So I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore’s life. The result is a thick-grooved song that’s dynamic and has a weightiness to it.”

“Mad Hatter” was recorded in LA this past March and co-produced by the band and Joe Barresi, who produced Avenged Sevenfold’s critically acclaimed album, The Stage, and its Grammy nominated title track.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is published by Activision and developed by Treyarch with additional development support from Raven Software and PC development with Beenox. The title is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 12th.
