Avatar Announce North American Tour with Light The Torch and Otep


It’s been a hot second since Swedish clown metallers Avatar hit the road, because according to their press release, they’re “sequestered deep in a Swedish forest, working on their ninth studio album.” But now the band have given their Juggalos (pronounced with a soft ‘J,’ because they’re Swedish, so ‘yuggalos’) something to look forward to, as they’ve announced a tour with Light the Torch and Otep, to kick off this fall.

Said the band in a statement:

“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,” the band says. “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.”
