TWR Radio Favorites AVATAR Release New Song, Tour Dates

(NEW YORK, NY) – Swedish visual masterminds AVATAR unveiled their latest video for Smells Like A Freakshow today. Click HERE or the image above to watch.

Frontman Johannes Eckerström adds his own words about the new video:

“The video illustrates inner conflict in an explicit manner, using abuse of unjust power in different contexts. The lyrical themes of downfall, embracing of decadence and failed attempts to escape are pointed out by the fact that ultimately the bad guys win.”

The band kicks off their very first U.S. tour supporting LACUNA COIL and SEVENDUST with an intimate performance at The Studio at Webster Hall in New York City on Wednesday, January 30.
