Rock Candy

Avenged Sevenfold have gifted fans yet again with another new song.

Following “Malagueña Salerosa”and “Retrovertigo” comes “Dose,” which, according to M. Shadows, was meant to be a part two to “Roman Sky” off of the band’s latest LP The Stage.

As for the song itself, Shadows said in a press release for the track,

“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.”

“Dose” can be downloaded/streamed from multiple outlets here, and you can check out the lyric video below.
