It’s been about a month since Avenged Sevenfold dropped a new cover track in correlation with their latest studio album The Stage, and this one’s a killer.

A7X’s latest cover takes on the Pink Floyd classic “Wish You Were Here” and is accompanied by a video that highlights the band’s summer tour playing stadium gigs with Metallica.  There are some incredible crowd shots, and for all you wrestling marks out there, your eyes don’t deceive you.  That really is “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman at the 4:48 mark of the video.

“Wish You Were Here” is the sixth cover A7X has release over the past few months.  Other cover track included the band’s take on Del Shannon’s “Runaway,” The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows” and The Rolling Stones’ “As Tears Go By.”
