Avatar To Release “The King Live In Paris” In May

Avatar will be releasing a new live album titled “The King Live In Paris” on May 17. The effort was recorded at the 2018 Download Festival in Paris, France and a stream of “Bloody Angel” from the set can be found below:

Frontman Johannes Eckerström commented:

“Looking back at all that’s happened and what’s still going on it feels more like a document from a pivotal battle than a live album.

In the past, I’ve found it hard to motivate making something like this, but as time goes on, I find it fortunate that we get to have our work captured like this. I realize now more than ever that we are in the process of constant change. This release is a version of Avatar that didn’t exist a year prior, and that already has morphed into something else. The show at Download Paris was a particular one for many reasons. We are very proud of the result.”

Avatar Announce North American Tour With Devin Townsend, Dance With The Dead, & ’68

Avatar have announced a headlining North American tour. Devin Townsend (acoustic), Dance With The Dead, and ’68 will serve as support.

Avatar’s Johannes Eckerström commented:

“As we’ve stated in the past, we are reaching the end of the road for the Avatar Country saga. And if you want to see us in all our Royal Glory in tribute to the King, this might very well be your last chance. We will make sure to go out with a bang!

This tour is extra special to us and me personally as we’ve not only amazing hand-picked openers to showcase what we think deserves more eyes and ears in ’68 and Dance With The Dead, but we also have the extreme pleasure and privilege to share the stage with Devin Townsend at an exciting phase of his career.

I am a life long fan, and I genuinely feel that people who appreciate our willingness to experiment and walk that extra mile to be true to our vision and integrity have Mr. Townsend to thank for a lot. It will be a bucket list experience for me, and I hope we get to share it with as many people as possible.”
