Swedish metal misfits Avatar have unleashed today an official clip for their latest single “New Land,” which comes off their 2016 release via eOne Music, Feathers & Flesh. The new vid was directed by Johan Carlén (Pop Evil, Smashing Satellites) and can be streamed below.
In more news, the band will soon set out on spring tour dates beside In This Moment, Motionless in White and Gemini Syndrome as part of the “Half God Half Devil Tour,” with a stop in Albany, NY at Palace Theatre set for April 19 [tix]. The band have also booked a one-off headlining show at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus for the following evening, April 20 [tix tba].
Regarding the upcoming run, Avatar vocalist Johannes Eckerström had the following to say:
We’ve got many friends in the United States nowadays and we feel like making some new ones. We are grateful for this opportunity to hit the road. I believe this will not only be a chance to meet all our faithful Avatar Country-citizens once again, but I think there will be a busy day on our embassy following this.
It’s funny that the one I look forward to the most to perform in front of this time is YOU, who won’t be reading this as you don’t know who we are yet. Boy, oh boy are you in for a treat… It’s on.
Confirmed tour dates are posted below.
Speaking of Gemini Syndrome, the California-based alt-metal bunch have booked a headlining show at Long Island’s Amityville Music Hall for April 24, with support courtesy of Brand of Julez, In Dead Silence and Prey Upon [tix].
