Avenged Sevenfold is looking to reward fans for social distancing with free band merch during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The band launched their #IncentivizedQuarantine contest on their Instagram saying, “Starting tomorrow we will be joining our friends @WarrenLotas in incentivizing people to stay home for a full 7 days and self-quarantine. We are developing a ‘Check-in’ webpage where you will upload a selfie at home when prompted by us via our IG STORY at a random time. Whoever successfully uploads a selfie with the PHRASE OF THE DAY written on a piece of paper within 30 MINUTES of that post, 7 days in a row, will receive a free t-shirt, hoodie or accessory from @A7XWorld. We have a chance to ‘flatten the curve’ and save countless lives.  We are all in this together. DON’T WORRY ABOUT BEING PERFECT: You can start your 7 days at any point so if you miss a check in just start again and you’ll be at 7 before you know it. In addition, we will be CLOSING @A7XWorld for now. We encourage you to support your favorite independent artists, brands, and businesses during this time of uncertainty. #IncentivizedQuarantine”

In other words, if you’re an A7X fan and aren’t currently following the band on Instagram, now is the perfect time to do so.
