Avenged Sevenfold must have ants in their pants, as the Orange County band just wrapped their Nightmare After Christmas Tour with Stone Sour and are now prepping to hit the road again for the Welcome to the Family Tour this spring. The tour supports the band's brand new single of the same name; the song is no. 1 on the rock radio charts and is the band's second numero uno score.

So congrats to A7X for enjoying new feats and accolades this deep into their career. The familial trek will begin April 22 and run for a month, closing out on May 21.

Three Days Grace are the tour's special guests and will take the stage for the entire run. Atlanta soul stirrers Sevendust will appear from April 22 through May 1, with Welsh metallions Bullet for My Valentine will hop on from May 3 through May 20.
