Avenged Sevenfold Gets Hacked on Trax

Avenged Sevenfold has been hacked.

The band appears to have been targeted by AI deepfake technology that was used to announce a pair of phony festival cancelations.

A one-minute clip tiled “Important Announcement” was uploaded to the band’s “Trax” podcast, and appeared to feature singer M. Shadows.

It was actually just his likeness via deepfake/AI/voice-changing technology.

Shadows later announced on Twitter that the news is not true writing, “Yikes! This is NOT TRUE. We are still playing. Getting to the bottom of this.  Literally walking in the streets of Mexico and listening to this. What the actual f**k… NOT ME!”
