As previously stated, the band has created songs for the game before. Last fall, they rereleased song “Mad Hatter” for the game after receiving backlash.
After hearing the track on streaming services and the radio, fans began complaining about the new track’s clarity and how some parts were hard to hear.
Frontman M. Shadows agreed with fans, stating the first time he heard it on the radio he too had an “Oh shit!” moment.
“Hey guys and gals – I hope you are all doing well,” he wrote on the band’s reddit page. “I just wanted to update you on a situation with ‘Mad Hatter.’ We saw some complaints about the mix and we totally agree with you! We were pushing the limits in a lot of different ways and once the compression of streaming services and radio got a hold of it the clarity become muddied. I heard it on the radio and was like ‘Oh shit!’
The good news is we live in a world were you can quickly fix your mistakes and we have done just that. On Monday all streaming services and radio will switch to this new version with more clarity but we wanted you to get it here first. Check out this link. We hope you enjoy and have a great weekend.”
