"The Stage" is a song by Avenged Sevenfold and the first single from their seventh studio album of the same name, which was released on October 28, 2016.
The official music video, directed by Chris Hopewell, was released to YouTube on October 13, 2016. The video shows a puppet show, depicting humans throughout history killing each other, until the present day, which shows politicians as puppets pulling strings of the crowd. At the end of the video, a reaper-like creature is shown pulling the strings of politicians, and it presses a "reset button", going back to the beginning of mankind. File Hashes
