Avenged Sevenfold have released an audio visualizer for a new track titled “Dose”. Frontman M. Shadows said of it:
“Musically, ‘Dose’ was supposed to be a Part 2 to ‘Roman Sky’ and had a very cinematic feel, but we turned it into more of a tripped-out metal song. The lyrics were inspired by an unsolved mystery that dates back to the 1950s about an airline traveler who, if you believe the story, supposedly fell into our dimension from another.
According to reports, he showed up in a Tokyo airport with a passport from a country that didn’t exist anywhere on a map. He was detained for questioning, but mysteriously vanished from a room guarded by immigration officials, taking with him all evidence of his existence. It ties into the theory that there are infinite possibilities of our lives being played out across space and time. Don’t know if the story is true, but I’m fascinated by that kind of stuff and thought it’d be a fun idea for a song.”
The song is part of the band’s “evolving” new album The Stage (Capital Records). Download the new track here.
