AVATAR have released another song off their forthcoming LP today exclusively via LOUDWIRE.
“Tooth, Beak & Claw is epic, massive death metal designed to make you want to dance,”says frontman Johannes Eckerström. “It’s the Beach Boys reporting in from Valhalla. It’s a gang of zombie surfers riding the waves of Hades.”
AVATAR will release their very first concept album titled Feathers & Flesh to be released on Friday, May 13, 2016 via Entertainment One (eOne) in North America and Canada and Another Century overseas.
The new release will be the band’s highly anticipated followup to Hail The Apocalypse released in 2014, which cracked the Billboard Top 200 for the first time in the band’s career.

Feathers & Flesh was recorded in Germany, Finland and Sweden in December 2015.The music is as always, rooted in the extreme, with plenty of melodic sensibility and a lust for experimentation. There is a love for intense double bass drumming, riffing and shredding of timeless dimensions alongside rough edges, slow grooves and epic storytelling for the ages.
AVATAR have developed quite the reputation for touring the US harder than even some of their American counterparts.AVATAR will return to Rock on the Range, Welcome to Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Rocklahoma and River City Rockfest in 2016. They will also be performing at Download UK and Download Paris this summer.
