From the Royal Court of Avatar Country on May 10 in the Year of the King (2019):

AVATAR has debuted another single from their live LP today called “The Eagle Has Landed (Live in Paris 2018)” just one week before the release of The King Live In Paris on May 17, 2019. This is the second track we’ve heard from the all-new album, the first being “Bloody Angel (Live in Paris 2018)” back in March.

The King Live In Paris was recorded 100% live at Download Festival 2018 in Paris, France. The new release underscores fan favorites such as "A Statue Of The King", "Let It Burn" and "Hail The Apocalypse".

"Looking back at all that's happened and what's still going on it feels more like a document from a pivotal battle than a live album," says frontman Johannes Eckerström.

"In the past, I've found it hard to motivate making something like this, but as time goes on, I find it fortunate that we get to have our work captured like this. I realize now more than ever that we are in the process of constant change. This release is a version of Avatar that didn't exist a year prior, and that already has morphed into something else. The show at Download Paris was a particular one for many reasons. We are very proud of the result."

AVATAR has also been confirmed to support BABYMETAL in the U.S. this fall. The tour which will bring together two international powerhouse acts will kick off in Orlando, FL on September 04, 2019. Dates will stretch across The States before wrapping up in San Francisco, CA on October 05, 2019.

"His Royal Majesty the King is delighted to announce this great new trade deal with BABYMETAL of the Land of the Rising Sun," says Johannes. "He looks forward to this unique opportunity that he assures will be of great benefit to everyone involved, especially all the soon to be Citizens of Avatar Country who are yet to hear His Highness' Royal orchestra."

Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, May 17 at 10 am local with VIP/Fan club presale beginning Monday, May 13 at 10 am local through Thursday, May 16 at 10 pm local. Click here for more info.

AVATAR will release The King Live In Paris on May 17, 2019, via Entertainment One (eOne). Pre-save and pre-orders are available now with “Bloody Angel (Live in Paris 2018)” and "The Eagle Has Landed (Live in Paris 2018)" serving as iTunes instant gratification tracks, meaning fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will receive both as immediate downloads.

The band will also release an exclusive "FYE Sonic Temple Edition" double picture disc vinyl only at Sonic Temple, the annual American rock festival held in Columbus, OH at MAPFRE Stadium. The one of a kind vinyl version has a wine spine jacket, two euro jackets inside on printed dust sleeves. AVATAR will sign the exclusive vinyl at the FYE tent at Sonic Temple on Friday, May 17, 2019.
