AVATARIUM: New Album Due In September

Friday, 12th June 2015

AVATARIUM, the Swedish 70s-inspired doom band led by CANDLEMASS bass Leif Edling has entered the studio to begin recording its sophomore album for an October release via Nuclear Blast.

To celebrate the as-yet-untitled CD’s arrival, AVATARIUM will embark on a European headlining tour with support from their Islandic labelmates THE VINTAGE CARAVAN. Opening the trek will be SPIDERS.

Comments AVATARIUM guitarist Marcus Jidell: “The last six months we have been writing, rehearsing, demoing and now we finally started the recordings for our next album.

“We’re all super excited about the new songs and since the album will be released in October, what could be a better way to celebrate then to go on tour right after!

“AVATARIUM loves to play live. We always try to make every evening special and to blend the vibe of the ’70s with the heavy sound of today. Also, we are very happy to be touring with two great bands, THE VINTAGE CARAVAN and SPIDERS.”

The band’s self-titled debut was released in 2013.
