According to Avenged Sevenfold, M Shadows, the band doesn’t have the control over their forthcoming DVD, “This Is Bat Country”, for which he says that doesn’t meet the band’s standards of quality. Talking to Loudwire he said: “The reality is the DVD just never got there. I know some fans don’t want to hear this, but for us when we’re looking at something and deciding on whether to put it out or not, it’s gotta go through some sort of process or, ‘Is this good enough to come out? Υou get asked a question a million times of ‘You got a DVD?’ It starts leaking out that there’s a DVD and you go ‘Okay yeah, we have a DVD.’ Then when it doesn’t get there, there’s no reason for us to put it out – and the DVD was never quite good enough to come out in our opinion. So, I don’t know what’s happening with it right now. I know it’s still on the cutting floor. We’re still trying to make tweaks to it, but then there’s also the Warner Bros thing. We’re not with Warner Bros anymore and they own the rights to that footage. So, I don’t know what’s going to happen with that DVD. The real answer is just that it wasn’t up to par with what we wanted to be releasing.” In the meantime, Avenged Sevenfold are on a legal battle with Warner as they tried to break their contract earlier this year.
