Multi-platinum rock headliners Avenged Sevenfold released their highly anticipated eighth album, titled “Life Is But a Dream…,” released on June 2 via Warner Records.
Have a listen to the single “We Love You”, below:
The lyrics delivered by M. Shadows in “We Love You” speak to the insatiable pursuit of “more power, more pace, more money, more taste.”
These lyrics vividly portray the internal drives that serve as both motivators and destroyers of self and reality.
The song mirrors the forced pressures of our society, compelling us to constantly consume, strive, stretch, and exhaust everything within our grasp, potentially leading to our own undoing if not restrained. Avenged Sevenfold’s skill in weaving dynamic transitions within a single song is prominently displayed in this track.
The music video for “We Love You” is equally ambitious.
Artist Ryan McKinnon, utilizing Unreal Engine, has crafted an enveloping and innovative visual experience for fans.
This visual journey commences in a tranquil natural setting before succumbing to the frantic pace imposed by society, resulting in a rapid world-building process.
To date, A7X’s album sales have exceeded 10 million globally, with consecutive No. 1 albums on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart: “Nightmare” in 2010 and “Hail To The King” in 2013. Their digital footprint boasts over a billion video views, a billion-plus cumulative streams, and multiple No. 1 singles on rock radio.
