AVATAR – "The Eagle Has Landed (Live In Paris 2018)" out now

“Looking back at all that’s happened and what’s still going on it feels more like a document from a pivotal battle than a live album,” says frontman Johannes Eckerström. “In the past, I’ve found it hard to motivate making something like this, but as time goes on, I find it fortunate that we get to have our work captured like this. I realize now more than ever that we are in the process of constant change. This release is a version of AVATAR that didn’t exist a year prior, and that already has morphed into something else. The show at Download Paris was a particular one for many reasons. We are very proud of the result.” AVATAR will release “The King Live In Paris” digitally on May 17, 2019, via Century Media Records outside of the USA, Canada and Mexico. You can preorder the album under the following link. Track List: 1. Intro 2. Statue Of The King 3. Let It Burn 4. Paint Me Red 5. Bloody Angel 6. For The Swarm 7. Tower 8. The Eagle Has Landed 9.
