SONG PREMIERE: Avenged Sevenfold – “Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd Cover)”

Avenged Sevenfold has premiered their cover of Pink Floyd‘s “Wish You Were Here” recently. You can check that out below. The song is from the band’s ever evolving album The Stage.

Frontman M Shadows has the following to say about the cover:

“This is the song that started us down the rabbit hole with our recent cover recordings. I’ve always loved this song and though I felt it would be impossible to capture the somberness of the original, we approached it with another purpose.

There’s a poignancy to the song that seems appropriate with everything going on in the world today. We put a bit of a modern twist on it to reintroduce it at a time when it might help capture what some of us are feeling.”
