The band took to social media today to announce they're making a check-in page where fans can upload selfies from home when prompted by their Instagram stories at random times to ensure they're following social distancing practices.
Fans who successfully upload a selfie with a phrase of the day written on a piece of paper within 30 minutes of the post going up are receiving a free T-shirt, hoodie or accessory if they can complete the challenge for seven days straight.
They're also letting fans know they don't have to worry about being absolutely perfect with their self-isolation. as they can restart the seven day challenge at any point if they miss a post.
Check out the announcement from Avenged Sevenfold below.
