Avenged Sevenfold have launched a self-quarantining #IncentivizedQuarantine contest, challenging fans to practice social-distancing during this coronavirus pandemic. Their reward is free merch including a free t-shirt, hoodie or accessory from @A7XWorld.
The challenge is for people to stay home for a full 7-days in self-quarantine, and checking in on a webpage where fans will upload a selfie at home when prompted to the band on their Instagram story at a random time throughout the day. Fans who successful upload a selfie everyday with the phrase of the day written on a piece of paper within 30-minutes of the post for 7-days will receive a free piece of merch the Avenged Sevenfold.
Can you do it? Let us know!

Read the band’s full statement below:
“Starting tomorrow we will be joining our friends @WarrenLotas in incentivizing people to stay home for a full 7 days and self quarantine. We are developing a ‘check-in’ webpage where you will upload a selfie at home when prompted by us via our Instagram Story at a random time. Whoever successfully uploads a selfie with the phrase of the day written on a piece of paper within 30 minutes of that post, seven days in a row, will receive a free T-shirt, hoodie or accessory from @A7XWorld. We have a chance to ‘flatten the curve’ and save countless lives. We are all in this together.
“Don’t worry about being perfect: you can start your seven days at any point so if you miss a check-in just start again and you’ll be at seven before you know it. In addition we will be closing @A7XWorld for now. We encourage you to support your favourite independent artists, brands, and businesses during this time of uncertainty.”
