AVATAR Announce 2019 Europe Headline Tour
WORLD TOUR CONTINUES
“AVATAR COUNTRY” OUT NOW
From: The Royal Department of Government Approved Freedom of Press
To: Whomever it may concern
03 October in the year of the King (2018): Citizens! It is yet another great day for Avatar Country and therefore the world. As the King’s Harvest is growing richer, the coming year of the King is bound to be the greatest on record!
The Department of Informing the Citizens of the Kingdom (D.I.C.K.) is thrilled and intimately tickled as they get to be bearer of the good news that AVATAR ARE HITTING EUROPE FOR A HEADLINE TOUR IN 2019!
Directly from the Royal Mouth of the Horse Spreading Gossip, we have the following tidbit:
”The King is eternal. Avatar Country is endless. But album cycles come and go. Even though legends never die, sagas sometimes must end. We are not there quite yet, but we’re closer than ever. As dark forces slowly cloud our minds, we urge you to join us in the celebration of Avatar Country before the door closes to the kingdom and we wander on to new unexplored territories. Join us and let’s make this one for the ages!”
AVATAR will return to Europe in continued support of their newest LP, “Avatar Country”. This will be the band’s second full scale European run for this album cycle, which also has taken them on multiple trips to North America during the spring of 2018 and across all of Europe for extremely successful festival dates over the summer.
Tickets will be on sale 05 October.

“Avatar Country is the culmination of the group’s evolution into a singular powerhouse, a trip into the heart of what makes metal so distinctively powerful.” NEW NOISE MAGAZINE
“If Avatar Country isn’t recognized as a multi-faceted metallic gem, forget government: Your current hard-rock tastes might need to be overthrown.” ALTPRESS
“This royalty-themed release features plenty of the usual theatrics and bombast from the Gothenburg quintet, but with stronger songwriting to shore up their conceptual side.”ROCK SOUND
“‘Avatar Country’ is a wonderful ride.” METAL INJECTION
“The Swedish oddballs have risen to the challenge of creating a follow-up that’s just as barmy.” METAL HAMMER
“Avatar has only gotten weirder, wackier and more ambitious, not only pushing the over-the-top, operatic boundaries of their sound but also creating a whole imaginary ‘country’ in the process.” REVOLVER
“Avatar’s music and their stage performance is ‘Metal Theater,’ and they not only fall into this category – this album defines it.” TATTOO.COM
“The opening track ‘Glory to Our King’ sounds like it could’ve come straight off of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club, a warm and over the top introduction to the rest of the album.” LOUDWIRE
