Avatar will be returning to North America this year on the Avatar Country World Tour. Frontman Johannes Eckerström said of the trek:

“As we’ve stated in the past, we are reaching the end of the road for the Avatar Country saga. 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!”

Direct support on the tour will be provided by Devin Townsend, who will be performing a full acoustic set. Additional support will be provided by Dance With The Dead and ’68. Eckerström continued:

“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.

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.”

Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 8th. A special pre-sale will kick off on Thursday, February 7th, via Blabbermouth, using the the password BBM2019; and Revolver using the password Revolver2019.
