Avatar Release New Song “Construction of Souls”

0

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:

The heavy metal ‘n’ roll dark madcap visionaries collectively known as Avatar— vocalist Johannes Eckerström (vocals), guitarists Jonas Jarlsby and Tim Öhrström, bassist Henrik Sandelin, and drummer John Alfredsson — have shared another new song. Today, the band has dropped “Construction of Souls.” Listen below.

It’s Avatar’s version of a holiday song!

“This song will be to Christmas songs what Die Hard is to Christmas movies,” the band says. “It wasn’t intended to be that, but ultimately, it makes a lot of sense. It’s about us — meaning the robots taking over the great human project of our ancestors, building our way out of the planet on sandy soils, saturated with the withering bones of our ancestors.”

The track is being released together with a children’s book portraying the “not-very child-friendly everyday life” in Santa’s workshop in the parallel universe of Avatar. The book will be available on Sunday, November 28. Get it here.

Avatar will return to the road in early 2022. Dates for the band’s rescheduled U.S. tour run and full European trek are below.
