MUSIC NEWS: A7X “Resurrects” album for re-issue

Avenged Sevenfold will reissue its breakthrough second album, Waking The Fallen, in a new special edition on August 26th. Waking The Fallen: Resurrected will include a total of 23 tracks, including 11 never-before-heard songs, new artwork, the original first cut of the music video for “Unholy Confessions” and a 30-minute film featuring the present-day band.

Among the nearly dozen previously unheard tunes are two new songs, including the long-lost full version of the title track, which was edited down to an instrumental intro on the album. Also featured are four never-before-heard demos — containing alternate lyrics, melodies and arrangements — and five rare live cuts recorded in 2004.

The documentary will feature brand new interviews with the band, looking back on the creation of the Waking The Fallen album and its subsequent tour. The film includes personal behind-the-scenes home movies and photos from the band’s earliest days.
