A couple of weeks on from announcing their first Life Is But A Dream tour with Alexisonfire, Avenged Sevenfold have announced a second North American leg this year.

The Huntington Beach metal kings will be taking their long-awaited new album out on the road throughout North America in the autumn with Falling In Reverse, kicking off in Florida on September 16 and wrapping up in Texas just under a month later.

And as well as their Deathbats Club platform, A7X will be using their new TicketPass system in which they plan to reward fans in the long run.

“TicketPass will by no means cost anyone any money, you won't have to get involved in cryptocurrency, you won’t have to do any of these things that people feel uncomfortable with, and the token that we’re going to be using is on the Polygon network — an environmentally-friendly blockchain,” explains frontman M. Shadows. “We want to roll something out to the rest of our fanbase without them having to opt into a full fan club experience that is strictly for tickets and ensuring our fans get the best tickets they desire first.

“At the end of the day, we want to know your feedback on if this worked well for you, and we will take notes and mold this for you. Look at this as a frequent flier miles type of program – with Avenged Sevenfold, we will be breaking these passes into ‘tiers’ over time and rewarding the people who have been participating the most in our A7X ecosystem (with merchandise, listening habits, music consumption, live events, and other metrics).”
