AVENGED SEVENFOLD Releases Video For Cover Of Spanish-Language Song ‘Malagueña Salerosa’

Friday, 09 June 2017
AVENGED SEVENFOLD has released its cover version of "Malagueña Salerosa" — also known as "La Malagueña" — a well-known son huasteco or huapango song from Mexico, which has been covered more than two hundred times by various recording artists. The song's lyrics were written about a man telling a woman (from Málaga, Spain) how beautiful she is, and how he would love to be her man, but that he understands her rejecting him for being too poor. The official video for AVENGED SEVENFOLD's version of "Malagueña Salerosa" can be seen below. The clip was directed by Rafa Alcantara and produced by TWENTYFOURCORE. "Malagueña Salerosa" is the first new AVENGED SEVENFOLD recording to arrive since the release of the band's seventh album, "The Stage", which was released at the end of October with almost no promotion beforehand. The surprise release of the disc, which was announced the night it went on sale, earned the lowest sales of an AVENGED album in 11 years. It sold 76,000 copies in its first week, 73,000 of which were physical. AVENGED SEVENFOLD frontman M. Shadows recently confirmed to Kaytie of the Razor 94.7 radio station that the band will embark on a full North American headlining tour in January and February 2018. The trek, which will be announced after the completion of AVENGED's current stadium run as the support act for METALLICA, was originally "supposed to happen this summer until we got that call from METALLICA, so we decided to put it on hold," the singer explained.
