Avenged Sevenfold has premiered their new song recently. You can check out the stream for their song “Dose” below. The song is from the band’s evolving concept album The Stage which they released last year.
Vocalist M. Shadows has the following to say about the song:
“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.”
