Avatar Postpone Remaining U.S. Dates After Johannes Eckerström Tests Positive For COVID-19

Avatar’s Johannes Eckerström has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the band’s remaining U.S. dates have been postponed.

The group issued the following statement:

“We are very sorry to announce that the remaining dates of the Going Hunting tour are postponed. Johannes has tested positive for COVID-19. He is fully vaccinated, feels fine under the circumstances, and expects a full recovery shortly. Sadly, this will not be in time to make the remaining shows happen. We are already working on solutions to make the dates at a later time. We are looking into routing around our dates in January at Shiprocked, so please stay tuned for that!

We made a point to not see friends, fans, or anyone outside our bubble on this run in order to minimize the risks. We thank everyone who helped make this tour as safe as possible. It’s amazing that we made it this far and that was a team effort.

This is just a bump in the road and we WILL see you all very, very soon!

Be good to yourselves. Take care of each other. / Avatar”

This news comes after Tallah were previously removed from the trek due to positive COVID-19 tests.

Tallah Removed From Avatar Tour Due To COVID-19 Outbreak Within The Band

Tallah have revealed that members of the band have tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the group have been removed from their tour with Avatar and Magic Sword. You can help them out by donating via GoFundMe.

The band initially issued the following statement:

“Last night several members of Tallah tested positive for COVID. Unfortunately this means that we will be unable to carry on the tour with Avatar and will miss Louder Than Life Festival this weekend. It also means we are stranded in Nebraska and having to isolate for 10 days in an RV.

We need help from our fans to pay for hotel rooms so band members can rest up, isolate properly and then get home safe. For a new band like Tallah, every single date of the tour is very important to us. Not only to play to our fans in each city but also to make the tour work financially.

Because this tour is likely to come to an end now we are going to be down a huge amount of money as stuff has already been paid for. Anything you can afford to give would really help us out. We hope we can get back on the road soon and sorry to anyone who was looking forward to seeing us in the next few weeks.”

The later added:

“As you already know, some of your members caught COVID-19.

Due to some miscommunication about Avatar‘s COVID guidelines, their management has decided to remove us from the rest of the Going Hunting Tour.

We would have loved to continue the tour once we got better and tested negative, but that decision was not ours to make.

We appreciate everyone who came out to see us and wanted to see us on the rest of this tour, there is always next time.

If you’d like to continue your support, we have setup a GoFundMe to recoup some of our losses. See you soon.

Tallah“

Avatar Premiere New Songs “Going Hunting” And “Barren Cloth Mother”

Avatar have premiered two new songs, “Going Hunting” and “Barren Cloth Mother.” You can check out both of those below. With this news, the band have also announced that they have signed with Thirty Tigers under their own imprint Black Waltz Records.

The group commented:

“Since the early ’60s, Swedish children have grown up reading Lee Falk’s The Phantom. According to legend, The Phantom has the strength of 10 tigers. Thus, Avatar now has the strength of three Phantoms and are therefore finally unstoppable. Thirty Tigers are innovators and we are very excited to have signed with them. It’s good to work with such forward thinking people who truly understand what it means to be an artist in this millennium.”

“This calls for a celebration, so to commemorate this occasion, and the tour we’re just about to embark on, we’ve chosen to tear up some eardrums with ‘Going Hunting’ and ‘Barren Cloth Mother.’ Both songs tell about inner and outer darkness in their own ways. We keep sailing over dark oceans, staring down into the abyss. These songs, as great as they are, are just a taste of what’s yet to come.”

Hellfest organizers commented:

“Hellbangers,

What can we say except that we are proud (and excited) to finally unveil the long-awaited line up of our anniversary edition! Keeping such a line up as a secret for several weeks has been no easy task, especially in the last few days…

It’s been more than 16 months since our work rhythm was turned upside down by the arrival of this virus, since the live music industry was extinguished. Despite this, our confidence has never been affected and we have kept working with a positive mindset.

The frustration of two years without a festival has led us to dream even bigger about our reunion! In 2022, we are offering a new and unique format spread over 10 days! Never done before, this formula will, without a doubt, remain in the history of so-called “extreme” music! Twice as historic, because this formula is meant to exist only in 2022 and will not happen again in the years to come.

After a first weekend from 17 to 19th June 2022, we double the fun with an additional weekend from 23rd to 26th June! A real marathon that will see no less than 350 artists on 6 stages!

As usual, the festival does not deviate from its principles: you will see artists capable of performing in stadiums, with artists who are usually playing in smaller venues, and for some even in pub caves. Punk, Heavy, Black, Hardcore, Death, Stoner, Pagan, Power, we have done our best to put together what we believe to be the “edition of the century”.

No need to list the program in detail as you are not, and for the second year, headbanging at the festival right now. You can find out all this by yourself, at home or with your friends, enjoying our virtual edition “Hellfest From Home“! (More information over here : fromhome.hellfest.fr)

This exceptional edition is also an opportunity for us to thank the pass holders who have been waiting for more than 2 years. Your loyalty and trust have kept us going and we do not have enough words to thank you. It seemed fair to us that you should access the ticket sale 24 hours before the public sale in order for you to obtain your ticket for sure.

We are aware that some of you, for professional, family or simply financial reasons, will not be able to attend this XXL edition. By going through (and only through!) our partner TICKETSWAP (please stop Viagogo and others…), you will be able to resell your pass for the weekend you are the least interested in, and thus make one more happy fan!

For all the others who will have the chance to live these 10 days of anthology with us, we promise that you will remember our reunion! As a bonus, we might even make you a nice “FINISHER” t-shirt so that this moment will remain engraved forever in your memories. Once in a lifetime celebration!

Last but not least, we could not finish without thanking all those who have supported us during these last months. Volunteers, intermittents, sponsors, service providers, media partners, people from Clisson, we are all eager to see you again and to live with you this future adventure, which promises to be historic!

Stay Strong. Stay Safe.
