AVATAR Share Update from The Road, Band Working Ninth Album + Confirm Dates with IRON MAIDEN

The visionaries of heavy metal ‘n’ roll, dark and crazy known collectively as AVATAR – singer Johannes Eckerstrom (vocals), guitarists Jonas Jarlsby and Tim Öhrströmbass player Henrik Sandelinand drummer John Alfredson – emerged from the depths of the Swedish forest in which they worked on their ninth album to go on tour. In addition, Avatar announced a handful of South American dates with Iron Maiden. See tour dates below.

The band is criss-crossing North America, heading to Europe, and offered the following road update and new album.

“I guess that’s what they mean by coming back with a vengeance. We’re tearing North America apart with a fury that just couldn’t have happened in the past two years. Then we’ll go straight from here to Europe and do the same there. So many places we haven’t seen in a long time will be ours again. We make up for lost time, going wild in the process.

“All of that would have been enough on its own, but there is more. Sweden is Iron Maiden country. They shaped us like few others, and that goes for Avatar as much as for the entire Swedish scene over the past four decades. That being said, we’ve always known another place where they’re just as crazy about our heroes as we are. There seems to be a Swedish law that every rehearsal room must have the Rock In Rio poster. Brazil has always been a dream destination. We always knew we would find brothers and sisters there. The fact that our first trip there is with Iron Maiden it’s almost too much to take.

“This is all happening as we’re in the final stages of mixing our next studio album, and it’s so powerful that we’re most likely cursing our souls forever. We’ll make you see the devil and we’ll make you dance.
