The Swedish horde continue their charge in support of their 2023 full length, 'Dance Devil Dance'.

Sourcing one of the standout singles from their ninth studio album that landed earlier this year as the spectacular title, Swedish metal showmen Avatar have announced plans for their fall run across North America with the 'Chimp Mosh Pit' Tour.

The announcement lands as the band recently completed their spring stretch of 24-dates across several U.S. cities on the Dance Devil Dance tour with Veil of Maya and Orbit Culture.


For the fall installment of the tour, Avatar have sourced support from previous tourmates ad fellow Swedes, Orbit Culture as well as The Native Howl for the 21-date jaunt. The tour will include a succession of Canadian tour dates and will see Avatar make festival appearances starting at Blue Ridge Rock Festival in Alton, VA on September 10th, a play at Louder Than Life in Louisville, KY on September 22nd and closes out the tour with a play at Aftershock in Sacramento on October 7th.


The band shared of the recent announcement, "USA and Canada! Time to go APE SHIT! The Chimp Mosh Pit Tour 2023 is coming for YOU! With Orbit Culture and The Native Howl. The hottest show in metal today is a MUST SEE! SO COME AND SEE IT!"
