It's rare that bands formed in high school stick around, much less make it to the bigtime, but hardcore metal group Avenged Sevenfold has been an exception to the rule.

Formed in 1999, the band was catapulted to stardom with the release of its third album, City of Evil (2005, Warner Brothers), which broke into the Billboard Top 200—a feat repeated in 2007 with a self-titled release that also scored chart-topping hits in Europe. Firmly established as an international name, the five-piece California-based band is known for intense guitar riffs, high-energy sound and stadium-rocking live performances.

Now on tour to promote The Stage (2016, Capitol Records), Avenged Sevenfold will make a stop in Nampa for an outdoor concert that will bring all of its fans (who call themselves the Deathbat Nation) out of the Treasure Valley woodwork.
