Today sees the release of Avenged Sevenfold Live At The Grammy Museum® (Capitol), a special acoustic album recorded during the band’s recent sold-out event at the famed GRAMMY Museum® in downtown Los Angeles. Listen to the full set here and watch below to see the band’s GRAMMY Museum® performance of Roman Sky.

Produced by Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, Nine Inch Nails) and the band, the digital-only release features unique renditions of new songs and classic tracks captured during the first-ever acoustic performance by GRAMMY® nominees Avenged Sevenfold. A portion of the album’s proceeds will benefit the education initiatives of the GRAMMY Museum®, which seek to inspire youth to the enduring qualities and cultural significance of music.

Presented as An Evening with Avenged Sevenfold, the October 19th event was held at the Museum’s Clive Davis Theater and featured an intimate conversation about the band’s career and new music, moderated by Los Angeles Times Pop Music Critic Mikael Wood. The interview followed a stunning acoustic performance from the band (backed by a string section) and saw the quintet (vocalist M. Shadows, guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, bassist Johnny Christ and drummer Brooks Wackerman) discussing their latest release, The Stage. Last week, Avenged Sevenfold received a GRAMMY® nomination (their first ever) for “Best Rock Song” for that album’s title track, The Stage.
