AVATAR’s Australian shows and the pace of the band’s ascendency has not abated since the tour was announced. As well as a sold out European arena tour with friends, Gojira and a tour of South America with the mighty Iron Maiden, the band have delivered stunning sets across Europe’s biggest festivals (DownloadGrasppop, etc) and to top it all off their new album, Dance Devil Dance has made the list of the Best Albums Of 2023 in both Loudwire and Metal Hammer where they appear at the very summit of the list!

AVATAR have long been your favourite metal band’s favourite metal band. From Iron Maiden inviting them on tour; to Vinnie Paul claiming Dimebag would have been jealous of their riffs; to mega star cameos on their albums, including Halestorm‘s Lzzy Hale on the new one, Avatar have never lacked for adoration from their peers. When Matt Heafy of Trivium had to skip a few shows on their tour for the birth of his twins his choice to fill in for him was Avatar’s Johannes Eckstrom. The side of stage at every one of their US and Euro festival appearances always features a packed gallery of the who is who of rock luminaries riveted by and gaping the pure joy and spectacle.

Avatar have amassed over 100 million plays on Spotify and an incredible 163 million views on their YouTube channel with the songs Bloody Angel, Hail The Apocalypse, Torn Apart, The Eagle Has Landed and many more. Recent single The Dirt I’m Buried In, currently on 3.2M views, reached 1M views in only 2 days.
With their stunning new album, Dance Devil Dance debuting on The Australian iTunes Charts at #1 in Metal, #1 in Rock and #6 for All Albums, Australia will no longer be denied!
