Avatar has announced a North American headlining tour for this summer.

The run will kick off July 6 in Toronto, and will wrap up July 31 in Tuscon, Arizona. Light the Torch and Otep will also be on the bill.

“For all the tours we’ve done in North America, we have spent very little time there in the summer,” Avatar says. “Surely this must have led to a lot of unnecessary suffering that we are adamant on setting straight by applying necessary suffering.”

“We know people crave some light-hearted tunes for their make out sessions on the beach, and some sweet melodies as they watch the sun set over the lake,” the band adds. “We are here to destroy every single moment of summer time serenity. The sun will be the second hottest thing you’ll see in July.”

Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 29, at 10 a.m. local time. For the full list of dates and all ticket info, visit AvatarMetal.com.

Meanwhile, Avatar has been working on a new album. The group’s most recent record is 2020’s Hunter Gatherer, which has been followed by a number of one-off singles, including “Going Hunting.”
