Avatar release two new songs "Going Hunting" + "Barren Cloth Mother".
The dark, crazy visionaries of heavy metal 'n' roll who, under the name of AVATAR are ambitious, Swedish rock sorcerers of the highest order. They smash the boundaries between band, theater troupe, and cinematic masterminds with a series of celebrated albums and videos, and the immersive world of Avatar Country, a fantastical land where metal rules supreme.
In keeping with their customary larger-than-life-ness, the band is back with not one but TWO brand new songs.
The black and white, animated visual for "Going Hunting" features a giant insect as its protagonist, faceless men in suits, the band performing, and much more in its storyline. It's a glorious and cinematic visual, which is expected from the band.
The band has also announced its signing with a new label. They are now part of the Thirty Tigers roster and have launched their own Black Waltz Records imprint.
"Since the early 1960s, Swedish children have grown up reading Lee Falk's The Phantom"the band says. "Legend has it that the Phantom has the power of 10 tigers. So now Avatar has the power of three phantoms and is finally unstoppable. Thirty Tigers are innovators and we are very happy to have signed with them. It's good to work with such forward-thinking people who really understand what it means to be an artist in this millennium."
Avatar continue, "This needs to be celebrated, and to mark the occasion and our upcoming tour, we decided to bust some eardrums with 'Going Hunting' and 'Barren Cloth Mother'. Both songs are in their own way about inner and outer darkness. We keep sailing over dark oceans and staring into the abyss. These songs, as great as they are, are just a taste of what's to come."
Avatar will return to the road in the U.S. this September, as one of the first European metal bands to return to the United States tour circuit after the COVID-19 lockdown, with Magic Sword and Tallah in tow. The trek kicks off today, September 1, in Albany and runs through October 18 in Seattle. Going Hunting continues in Europe Jan 2022 in the UK and wraps in Sweden in March. The band will make a few Main Stage festival appearances this year and next. Hellfest, Aftershock, Louder Than Life and Blue Ridge Rockfest to name a few. All dates are below. Tickets are available here .
