It's been a little while, but Avenged Sevenfold are about to ramp up their activity. The band has scattered festival dates this summer, but they've just announced a full-scale 2013 European trek.

As if that wasn't enticing enough, the band will be trekking through Europe with Five Finger Death Punch and Device as part of the tour package. The late-year run begins Nov. 8 in Stockholm, Sweden and runs through a Dec. 5 finale in Birmingham, England. The full itinerary can be seen below and ticket options are available here.

Avenged Sevenfold have been working on a new album which is due out later this year. Guitarist Zacky Vengeance recently told Seattle-based station KISW on the 'BJ Shea Morning Experience,' "We are in the studio everyday from morning to night and we are almost done … We're finishing up and we've got a couple of more weeks before we head in to start mixing the album. [M.] Shadows has a handful of songs left to sing, less than that actually, and [Synyster] Gates has a few more solos to lay down. It's been going amazing."

As for Avenged Sevenfold's summer plans, they'll be performing a pair of July shows in Wisconsin and Michigan, while also taking part in Montreal's Heavy MTL festival and Bethlehem, Pa.'s Musikfest in August and appearing at KISW's Pain in the Grass festival in September before heading overseas. Their current North American and overseas itinerary can be seen here.
