The split EP hits stores on January 8, 2013 and will include two songs from each artist. This album serves as the first release of any solo work by PHILIP ANSELMO during the span of his nearly 30-year legacy.

AVATAR holds their place as one of  top requested artists of 2012 on The Welding Room.

The smash hit single, Ready For The Ride, powered itself into the top played songs on program. So it comes as no surprise that The Welding Room alliance is very familiar with AVATAR.

If you’re not – familiar with the band or song, we apologize for your ignorance. It’s never too late!

However, for TWR Alliance loyalists, AVATAR playing in the States is a welcome surprise.


(NEW YORK, NY) – AVATAR, the band that brought you the gut wrenching side show video for Black Waltz and the visually dazzling video for Torn Apart will support SEVENDUST and LACUNA COIL this winter. This is the very first time the band will play the US, dates will stretch up and down the east coast.


Drummer John Alfredsson adds his own words:

“It feels truly amazing to get the opportunity to make our first strike in the US with Sevendust and Lacuna Coil. 2013 will be the year of Avatar in the states and we are excited to bring the madness to you!”

The band released their newest record, Black Waltz earlier this year to much critical acclaim

“No song sounds the same from start to end, each one is a stylistic roller coaster ride!”Metal Hammer
