Avatar is a Swedish melodic death and groove metal outfit hailing from Göteborg. Formed in 2001, the band consists of frontman Johannes Eckerström, guitarists Jonas Jarlsby and Tim Öhrström, bassist Henrik Sandelin, and drummer John Alfredsson.
Signed to Entertainment One Music, the band have released a string of five studio albums and become one of the most popular European metal groups, touring hardcore alongside names like Avenged Sevenfold, Five Finger Death Punch, In Flames, Lacuna Coil, and Dark Tranquility.
Avatar returned in 2016 with a new record titled 'Feathers & Flesh', which they toured throughout Europe, including dates in the UK and Ireland. Since, the band released a single, A Statue of The King, in 2017, teasing a new album.
Following the January 2018 release of new album 'Avatar Country', the band will touch down in the UK and Europe again from January 2019. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
