Avenged Sevenfold to Tour with Prophets of Rage

  • Axl Rosenberg

In what seems like one of the odder potential pairings for a big summer tour, Avenged Sevenfold have announced that they’ll hit the road with Prophets of Rage starting in late July. I have to assume that no one in Prophets of Rage — which features members of leftist acts like Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy, and Cypress Hill — is that familiar with A7X, or is at least unaware that they wrote a song in support of the war in Iraq.

Either that or no one in Prophets of Rage actually believes their own message. I sincerely believe they just don’t know who they’ve aligned themselves with, though.

Dates are below, courtesy of Lambgoat. Additional support will come from Three Days Grace, who I had no idea were still a thing.
