Avenged Sevenfold have released an official music video for "Mad Hatter," the track they contributed to the soundtrack for upcoming video game Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The clip is comprised entirely of previews the Zombies IX game play, which promises potential players it will "deliver the largest Zombies offering ever on disc." This is the fourth song Avenged Sevenfold have contributed a song to the massively popular Black Ops franchise, all of which will appear on an EP dropping later this week titled Black Reign.
The down-tempo post-grunge ballad is quite a departure from the usual fast-paced arena rock that's turned Avenged Sevenfold a multi-platinum selling mainstream. Singe M. Shadows told Kerrang! magazine, "Black Ops 4 looks insane and is something completely new for fans, so we felt that we should take a similar leap with the music and go for something bigger, darker and more cerebral." Black Reign will be avaialable on all platforms Friday, September 21st, and you can pre-save the album on Spotify here.
