Hard-rockers Avenged Sevenfold will undertake a fall headlining tour with dates beginning on September 6 in Huntington, WV, and after five concerts, kick off a co-headlining trek with Buckcherry starting September 16 in Moline, IL. Avenged Sevenfold and Buckcherry will alternate as headliners with Shinedown and Saving Abel filling out the bill. So far nine concerts have been announced with more to come.

On September 9, Avenged Sevenfold will release a DVD/CD package, entitled “Live in the LBC & Diamonds in the Rough.” The live DVD features the band’s April 10 hometown show at the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, CA, headlining the Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour while the CD contains previously unreleased b-sides that were recorded during the making of “Avenged Sevenfold” plus various covers and other never-before-heard material. The DVD was directed by Core Entertainment’s Rafa Alcantara, who also worked on the band’s critically acclaimed 2007 road documentary “All Excess.”

Avenged Sevenfold have raised hell on the fourth annual Rockstar Taste of Chaos massively successful arena tour and are currently in the middle of a European tour with Iron Maiden. The band is touring behind the their latest self-produced, self-titled album, which topped the Billboard Alternative, Hard, and Rock charts the week after its release. The follow-up to 2005’s million-selling “City of Evil”, “Avenged Sevenfold” also debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200, marking the biggest sales week ever for the quintet. The album’s first single, “Almost Easy,” was a Top 10 hit at Active Rock, went Top 20 at Alternative and was the Number One Most Played Video on Fuse.
