Photo Gallery: AVATAR First Ever U.S. Show!

The Swedish blitzkrieg known as AVATAR began their first ever North American tour at The Studio at Webster Hall in New York City.

At the end of 2012, the band had established themselves as one of the top bands of the year on The Welding Room with their debut album, Black Waltz. The single Ready For The Ride was among the most requested, even though it was not a priority track by industry standards, yet you love it!

Look for AVATAR to rip up North America with SEVENDUST & LACUNA COIL.
