ICYMI: Avatar drop NSFW video for “Dance Devil Dance;” New album arriving in February

Posted by on November 3, 2022


Avatar recently released a NSFW, Johan Carlèn-directed video for their brand new song “Dance Devil Dance.” The single is the title track for their forthcoming album, out February 17th via Thirty Tigers. 


Vocalist Johannes Eckerström comments:

“I woke up to the truth one day. With my heart pounding, and a heavy breath, I knew for sure. I am Satan. The snake and forbidden fruit with a longing for knowledge, freedom and agency. My feet were moving. I thought I was running, but I was dancing. A celebration. Yes, I am the Devil, and I believe that one day you can be the Devil too. It is my hope and ambition that this song will help you find your way there. As such, it’s a celebration of love, lust and democracy.”
