Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Synyster Gates talked on an interview with Loudwire and explained what it feels like spending time with Metallica on their recent tour. He said:

“We just want to tour. We spent a lot of time in the studio. I mean, we’ve spent a lot of time on tour too.

Metallica was absolutely fucking fantastic but we’ve spent a lot of time in and around that recording. So now that it’s all done, and we have new artwork to show and new songs to show the kids, it’s just important to get out on the road and play and see familiar faces.

That’s ultimately what I love doing the most. The studio is fun and post fact, you learn so much shit, but it’s really about getting on tour and seeing the reason why you’re there.”

He also talked about Breaking Benjamin and said:

“Breaking Benjamin, talk about songwriting, I mean, some of the greatest songwriters of the modern era. And, obviously it’s a little heavier. So to bring a pretty unique package you got super heavy, then there’s us and whatever the fuck that is and then really super strong songwriting through that hard rock filter.”
