AVATAR Unveil Two New Songs ‘Going Hunting’ And ‘Barren Cloth Mother’ Ahead of 2021 U.S. Tour

Avatar unleash two new songs and headline tour dates.

AVATAR have debuted two new songs — “Going Hunting” and “Barren Cloth Mother” — in advance of the launch of their headlining U.S. tour, which commences today (September 1).

AVATAR are also celebrating their signing with ‘Thirty Tigers’ and starting up their own imprint known as ‘Black Waltz Records’, which takes it’s moniker from the band’s 2012 album, ‘Black Waltz’.

Commenting on the goings on within the band, AVATAR states: “Since the early ’60s, Swedish children have grown up reading Lee Falk’s The Phantom. According to legend, The Phantom has the strength of 10 tigers. Thus, Avatar now has the strength of three Phantoms and are therefore finally unstoppable. Thirty Tigers are innovators and we are very excited to have signed with them. It’s good to work with such forward thinking people who truly understand what it means to be an artist in this millennium.”

They continued, “This calls for a celebration, so to commemorate this occasion, and the tour we’re just about to embark on, we’ve chosen to tear up some eardrums with ‘Going Hunting’ and ‘Barren Cloth Mother.’ Both songs tell about inner and outer darkness in their own ways. We keep sailing over dark oceans, staring down into the abyss. These songs, as great as they are, are just a taste of what’s yet to come.”
