Faster than my prediction. The new video just arrived to watch. “So Far Away” is the third single and the video is the second official from their latest album “Nightmare”. The video premiered on MTV on Tuesday, May 11 2011. The video had a problem when its release due to fans attempting to watch it. They’re waiting minute by minute shown by the countdown on the official website. Now, read the full explanation from the band i’ve catched from the official website.
This video is a raw and emotional tribute to Avenged Sevenfold’s late drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan and celebrates the long-time friendship the band members have shared since forming A7X in Huntington Beach, CA, in 1999. The video was directed by Wayne Isham, who has directed videos for such artists as Metallica, Mötley Crüe, Megadeth, and Def Leppard, among many others. The heartfelt quality of the video is in keeping with the emotional resonance of the song, a very personal goodbye to Sullivan that appears on the band’s album Nightmare. – A7x official
