Back in August we told you about Hail to the King, a new web series from Avenged Sevenfold, Metalocalypse producer Jon Schnepp, and Machinima; and beginning December 15th you can binge view it in its entirety!
From the Press Release:
Avenged Sevenfold’s Hail to the King is well on its way to living up to its name. The album, released by Warner Bros. Records, earned the band its second No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart, selling upwards of 159,400 units, making it the biggest first-week sales debut for a rock album this year.
Hail to the King also went to No. 1 in the UK, handing the band its first chart-topping album in Britain, as well as in Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Ireland, and Finland. Avenged Sevenfold has just wrapped up sold-out tour dates in the U.S. and Europe, including a sold-out show at Wembley in the UK.
With all of this momentum, Machinima, the number one global video entertainment network for young males, has announced that the Hail to the King animated series will be released on December 15th for binge viewing on Machinima’s HappyHour YouTube channel.
From the creative minds of Avenged Sevenfold, one of rock music’s global heavyweights and a trailblazing force in fusing the worlds of music and video games, Hail to the King is a six-episode animated series directed by Metalocalypse producer Jon Schnepp. The unique and innovative series tells the fictional story of the Deathbat – the band’s longtime trademark – and serves as the prologue to their highly anticipated mobile video game, “Hail to the King: Deathbat.” Accompanying the launch of the series will be a trailer for the game, which will be available early 2014.
With the series launching in just days, Machinima has released an all-new trailer, which you can watch below. And don’t forget to mark your calendars for next Sunday, December 15th!
