Swedish theatrical metal band Avatar have just released two new songs, “Going Hunting,” and “Barren Cloth Mother.” Both tracks are available to see below.
Avatar will return to the U.S., this September, and is one of the first European metal bands to return to the US after Covid 19 travel restrictions have kept so many other out. Joining Avatar on the “Going Hunting” tour will be Magic Sword and Tallah. September 1, marks day one of the tour starting in Albany NY. Also on the schedule are Hellfest, Aftershock, Louder Than Life and Blue Ridge Rockfest, to name a few.
Avatar has signed with a new label, Thirty Tigers. The band talks about this and the double release,
‘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.”
Avatar went on to say,
“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.”
