Avenged Sevenfold haven't played a single show since 2018, but that's all about to change soon. In May, the O.C. metal titans will headline major festivals, and in June, they'll hit the stage for two release shows for their new album, Life Is but a Dream, one in L.A. on the 9th and another in NYC on the 23rd. Then in July, they'll kick off their first North American tour in five years, leg one primarily in Canada, leg two across the U.S.

Alexisonfire and Falling in Reverse, respectively, are set to play in the direct support slot on each of those two legs, but that's not all. Today (April 27th), A7X announced the opening acts for the tour and it's a fittingly eclectic bunch for a band that's as hard to pin down as Avenged. NOFX frontman Fat Mike's new band Codefendants will open the Life Is but a Dream record release show in L.A., while funk-metal pioneers Living Color will open the show in NYC. As for the North American tour dates, Revolver favorite Kim Dracula will open on both legs.

Check out A7X's announcement below, and watch Kim Dracula's wild "Seventy Thorns" video, featuring Korn's Jonathan Davis. For Avenged's full upcoming itinerary and more info, visit the band's site.
