Oh my freaking god, you guys! Avenged Sevenfold is reportedly back with a surprise new album coming out on Friday. Multiple news outlets say The Stage, the follow-up to August 2013's Hail to the King, will drop tomorrow. Musik Universe has pictures of the physical copy.

Earlier this month, the band shared the video for the album's first single, also titled "The Stage," in which they act out a violent puppet show. Very Halloween! At the time the single dropped, their album was rumored to be called Voltaic Oceans.

Avenged was tossed from Warner Bros. last year after the label smacked them with a breach-of-contract lawsuit. They have since made their way over to Capitol Records.

The reported tracklist for The Stage goes as follows:

1. "The Stage" (8:32)
2. "Paradigm" (4:19)
3. "Sunny Disposition" (6:41)
4. "God Damn" (3:42)
5. "Creating God" (5:35)
6. "Angels" (5:41)
7. "Simulation" (5:31)
8. "Higher" (6:29)
9. "Roman Sky" (5:00)
10. "Fermi Paradox" (6:31)
11. "Exist" (15:39)

Avenged Sevenfold will host a livestream event tonight on Facebook, and it looks like you won't want to miss it. Till then, check out a Fuse interview with the band:
