Swedish visual masterminds AVATAR
have announced a new batch of U.S. tour dates starting this fall. The dates will serve as the last time the band sees American soil while supporting their most recent record, Hail The Apocalypse
. “We are heading towards the final curtain call of the apocalypse,”
says frontman Johannes Eckerström.
The band plans to begin work on a new album at the end of the year with an all new release planned for 2016. Eckerström continues, “The hymns will be played one more time before we close this chapter and you need to be there. Destruction and decay is best viewed from a front row seat and as always, we intend to mix things up bring the freaky in ways we haven’t before.”
Support will come from HUNTRESS, GEMINI SYNDROME and FIRST DECREE.
The new HUNTRESS
will be released on September 25, 2015 on Napalm Records. The highly-anticipated record was produced by Paul Fig (Grammy nominated engineer, Alice in Chains, Deftones, Trivium, Ghost BC) and Jim Rota (Fireball Ministry, Executive Producer Sonic Highways series, Producer Sound City Movie), Engineered and Mixed by Paul Fig. Pre-orders are available nowhere
