Credit: Jeff ForneyNow's your chance to prove your Avenged Sevenfold fandom. The band is launching a free-to-join fan club, which will give you access to "all kinds of content, exclusive merchandise, special events and contests."

"We have spent a lot of time over the years trying to find ways to thank you, the fans, for your loyalty and support," Avenged Sevenfold writes in introducing the club. "It is completely FREE to join, and there are no 'tiers' separating fans based on how much money you spend."

You can sign up now via Fanclub.AvengedSevenfold.com. In addition to joining, you can suggest a name for the fan club. A7X will collect their favorite name submissions before opening up the decision to a fan vote.

Avenged Sevenfold currently is touring Europe in support of their new album, The Stage. They'll be spending their summer on the road through the U.S. opening for Metallica.
