Avatar live at Gramercy Theatre in 2018 by Lina Glasir

Swedish metallers Avatar have released a fresh transmission, confirming new North American tour dates as part of their ‘Avatar Country World Tour 2019.’

“As we’ve stated in the past, we are reaching the end of the road for the Avatar Country saga,” states vocalist Johannes Eckerström. “And if you want to see us in all our Royal Glory in tribute to the King, this might very well be your last chance. We will make sure to go out with a bang!”

The Revolver Magazine-presented pillage kicks off in Buffalo, NY at Town Ballroom on May 16 [TIX], and hits Sayreville, NJ at Starland Ballroom on May 18, before storming through PA, IL, Canada, and more through June. The band have also confirmed festival appearances at ‘Sonic Temple,’ ‘Rocklahoma,’ and more.

To sweeten the pot, the legendary Devin Townsend will provide direct support with an acoustic set, plus darkwave act Dance with the Dead and rockers 68’ will open every confirmed Avatar headlining show.

Johannes continues, “This tour is extra special to us and me personally as we’ve not only amazing hand-picked openers to showcase what we think deserves more eyes and ears in ’68 and Dance with the Dead, but we also have the extreme pleasure and privilege to share the stage with Devin Townsend at an exciting phase of his career.”

He closes out with, “I am a life long fan, and I genuinely feel that people who appreciate our willingness to experiment and walk that extra mile to be true to our vision and integrity have Mr. Townsend to thank for a lot. It will be a bucket list experience for me, and I hope we get to share it with as many people as possible.”
