Avenged Sevenfold Arrest Story
In the early hours of Tuesday 10th February, Avenged Sevenfold drummer The Rev was also arrested following a fight outside the Crowbar. An official press release states that the band stepped in to protect their tour manager, Val, who had become involved in a scuffle outside the popular London night spot.
“We are having a blast in England making a lot of great new friends. This was just one of those of those things. We never go looking for a fight, but we take care of our own, always,” said A7X frontman M Shadows.
However, the band told Punk Review.co.uk that they were “attacked by a gang of Samurai warriors whilst helping an old lady to cross the road”.
“Basically what happened was we were walking this old lady across the street and this group of hooligans showed up on motor cycles and they had guns and knives and a samurai sword,” explained guitarist Zacky Vengeance. “And one of them had a dragon with him which was blowing fire!
“We were just trying to help this old lady and they were like ‘Give us your purse!’, so we said ‘We’re not going to let you take this old ladies’ purse’, so we put on our suits of armour and away we went.”
“We went into full battle mode, which we are known to do,” added guitarist Synyster Gates. “It was like medieval times it was fucking crazy! Ok, all of that was all true… Apart from the old lady. There was no fucking old lady. But we did kill the dragon, and after we did that everyone else ran off and the police showed up.”
Avenged Sevenfold are reportedly taking offers for the film right for the incident. Samuel. L Jackson has already confirmed to play The Rev!
