19 Jul AVENGED SEVENFOLD TEAM WITH GAMELOFT
TO PREMIERE “DOSE”
Paris, July 13 2017 – “Dungeon Hunter 5,” the latest episode of Gameloft’s successful hack and slash series, is very proud to announce a partnership with Universal Music Group and multi-platinum-selling rock band Avenged Sevenfold. The game will offer its players an exciting experience around the universe of the band, with a special bat-themed dungeon and featured in-game assets. The collaboration will also grant fans an exclusive access to “Dose,” a brand-new song from Avenged Sevenfold.
Trespass on the bat kingdom with Avenged Sevenfold’s special dungeon!
For two weeks, players will be able to enter a thematic dungeon where they will have to part with hordes of undead minions and bewitched demons before the final confrontation against a terrific new boss, inspired by the band’s visual identity and the branding of their critically acclaimed new album, The Stage.
In addition, the soundtrack of this special level will be a new song from the band, exclusively broadcasted in “Dungeon Hunter 5” before its worldwide streaming release on July 14.
Terrific time-limited rewards!
First displayed on the boss of the dungeon, the bat-themed equipment will also be available for a limited time: an incredible skeleton armor, a guitar-shaped giant sword, and a back shield adorned with Avenged Sevenfold’s logo.

About Avenged Sevenfold
When talking about Avenged Sevenfold, the media always mentions the impressive stats, which include a string of best-selling albums, among them two consecutive No. 1’s on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart along with Diamond, Platinum and Gold awards for album sales in nearly a dozen countries and a series of No. 1 radio singles. But Avenged Sevenfold is a group whose career can’t be summed up by simple number-crunching. More than fifteen years after the release of their debut album, Avenged Sevenfold has become a band whose sound and vision has broken through obstacles of language, distance and culture. UK newspaper The Guardian recently described the group as the one metal band of their generation with genuine stadium-filling ability on both sides of the Atlantic. They’ve definitely proved themselves to be a monolithic concert draw, routinely selling out arenas worldwide, including the UK’s legendary Wembley Arena, and headlining some of the biggest and most prestigious music festivals around the globe including Download (UK), Soundwave (Australia), Summer Sonic (Japan), Graspop (Belgium) and Rock On The Range (USA). Their newest album is THE STAGE, which Guitar World called “the most surprising and ambitious album of their career.” Clocking in at 73 electrifying minutes, THE STAGE hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative, Rock and Hard Rock Album Charts and No. 1 on iTunes in 13 countries. Co-produced by the band and Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool), the critically acclaimed album is a work of immense scope and ambition, featuring 11 panoramic tracks tied together by an Artificial Intelligence theme. Inspired by the writings of Carl Sagan and Elon Musk, the album is the band’s first thematic release. Rolling Stone called it “the most aggressively bonkers music of the quintet’s career” and NME hailed the album as “their best yet.” The record’s epic 15-minute-plus closing track, “Exist,” features a guest appearance by award-winning astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson giving a spoken word performance he penned specifically for the album. All of which explains why The Guardian listened to the album and wrote, “the only reasonable response is to stand and applaud.”
