Avatar release music video for "Chimp Moshpit"
Official press release:
The heavy metal 'n' roll, dark, madcap visionaries collectively known as Avatar released their magnum opus and ninth album, Dance Devil Dance, this past winter via Black Waltz Records, distributed by Thirty Tigers. Get it here.
Today, they have shared the animated hybrid video for "Chimp Mosh Pit."
Vocalist Joannes Eckerström shared the following:
Choosing what songs to make videos out of from Dance Devil Dance was harder than ever, with some very strong candidates," says Eckerström. "Having battle tested 'Chimp Mosh Pit' on stage over and over makes me feel we made a very good choice. It's a fun ride. I like how it leans into the good rock 'n' roll times we like to mix with the destructive energy of the metal stuff. It feels like we are the only band who could've made this video.
Avatar will also return to the road this week on a headline tour that kicks off April 28 in Omaha and runs through May 28 in Pittsburgh. Veil of Maya and Orbit Culture will support. The rest of Avatar's summer and fall is filling up! With UK and European festivals and their first-ever Australian headline shows this summer, and back to the U.S. in the fall, Avatar are making the world theirs.
