eOne Music signs Avatar

Official press release: Swedish metal band, Avatar have signed a record deal with eOne Music for North America. Their latest full-length "Black Waltz" will reach US shores on February 14th, 2012. The band has been making waves in Europe with multiple appearances on festivals like Sweden Rock Festival, Arvikafestivalen and Storsjöyran. Avatar has supported acts such as Dark Tranquillity, Evergrey and Helloween over the years as well. Avatar shot a video for the title track "Black Waltz" which can be seen below. Directed by Johan Carlén and shot in Sweden's largest amusement park along side the notorious American circus side-show act, Hellzapoppin the video no doubtably speaks for itself. Or, as FEARnet states, "It's the most fun you'll ever have with a condom and a power drill!"

I guess the copyright issues that forced Avatar to change their name to Savatage in 1983 have expired. hahaha.
