Avatar Announce Summer North American Tour With Light The Torch & Otep


Swedish metal band Avatar have announced a summer North American headlining tour. That trek will see Light The Torch (ex-Killswitch Engage) in the direct support slot, while Otep will open. Pre-sale tickets launched today, April 26th, while the public on-sale will commence this Friday, April 29th at 10:00am local time. At the moment Avatar are working on their ninth studio album with producer Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour).

The group had the following to say of their 2022 plans:

“They don’t let us out much while we make our albums, so this summer will most likely turn out very dangerous for everyone involved. For all the tours we’ve done in North America, we have spent very little time there in the summer. Surely this must have led to a lot of unnecessary suffering that we are adamant on setting straight by applying necessary suffering.

We know people crave some light-hearted tunes for their make out sessions on the beach, and some sweet melodies as they watch the sun set over the lake. We are here to destroy every single moment of summer time serenity. The sun will be the second hottest thing you’ll see in July. To finally do something with Otep feels great, and to once again hit the road with Light The Torch will be awesome, as well.”
