Important Update about SynGates.com

Hello Synners,

We feel that it’s important Syn Gates School users get an update from us on a recent site security situation. We have an investigation underway and do not have the answer to every question.

Upon recent routine server maintenance, we’ learned that a hacker accessed SynGates.com in May 2018. As soon as we learned of the attack, we took down the site, shut down all access and launched an investigation as well as hiring a cybersecurity audit from a 3rd party. As of yet, we don’t know exactly what information and in what format the hacker could have taken.

We strongly recommend anyone who has an account on SynGates.com change their passwords on other sites. While common, it is bad practice to re-use the same password/email combo on multiple websites. Please change your passwords and please do not re-use the same password.

We also recommend that you check for your email address here. Lastly, we suggest using a password manager like 1 Password or LastPass.

Once we are satisfied that the SGS is secure again, we’ll bring the site back up to normal (should be very soon).

Until then, we apologize to all of you affected by this attack. We’’re disappointed that this happened and are committed to doing everything we can to make certain it never happens again.

NOTE: This notice is for www.SynGates.com, our guitar school. The SGS Store is unaffected and safe.

Avenged Sevenfold cancels all festivals and “End of the World” tour dates

Avenged Sevenfold have just confirmed they are cancelling all tourdates at the moment.

There is no good way to start out a note containing bad news but here it is.

After Europe I came down with a terrible viral infection that rendered me voiceless.

I tried my best to take care of the situation with voice rest, medication and doctor visits but my voice was only getting worse.

After a week of steroids the swelling went down enough to see the cause of the problem. A blood blister has formed on my vocal folds and is preventing them from vibrating properly. In short, I can’t sing anything at the moment and the more I attempt to the more damage is being done. Luckily, as of now the doctors feel that 3 months of no singing and voice rest should get my chords back on track.

Unfortunately, this means we will have to cancel all tour dates at the moment.

Decisions like this weigh on me very heavily. It’s a tour I was looking forward to very much. I want to apologize to the fans who have spent their time and money booking travel arrangements and accommodations. I also want to apologize to our crew and the other bands who were depending on this tour.

None of these things are lost on me.

Just know that I have exhausted every possible solution in trying to get out there and perform for you. It just simply can’t happen at the moment.

We have a few things coming down the pipe soon that should be fun so we hope you look out for those.

Again, I am deeply sorry and hope to see you all soon.

In silence,
M
