Avatar explores TRAPPIST-1 in “New Land” video

Posted by on March 6, 2017

We are one month away until Avatar hits the road with In This Moment, Motionless In White and Gemini Syndrome on the Half God Half Devil tour. To celebrate the upcoming journey, Avatar released the new music video for “New Land” taken from their latest album Feathers & Flesh. It seems Avatar was inspired by the recent scientific discovery of TRAPPIST-1, a dwarf star hosting its own solar system with a handful of earth-sized planets in orbit. Their new video shows the band traveling light years away to visit this “New Land.”

According to Revolver, guitarist Jonas “Kungen” Jarlsby” managed to contact planet earth just in time to describe their mission in space with the following message:

“The ‘New Land’ mission will focus primarily on finding life and sustainable living conditions. Secondly we will look for harvestable resources such as various types of metal, lead, copper, zinc, thrash, death… that sort of thing. How do I turn this off? I’m thirsty! Where is my mead? And where are your pants? Wait, is this thing still recording?! The mission will be aired LIVE on Avatar Country state television, KTV (Kungliga Television). For people abroad, unable to watch the event as it is happening, a summary can be seen above on AvatarVEVO today. Glory to Avatar Country! Glory to our King!”

Hopefully, they will return to Earth just in time for the tour.
