AVATAR Signs North American Deal With eOne Music

Swedish metallers AVATAR have inked a North American deal with eOne Music. The band’s fourth full-length album, “Black Waltz”, which will include songs from a limited-edition EP that was released in Sweden at the end of October 2011, will be made available in the U.S. on February 14.

AVATAR‘s “Black Waltz” video can be seen below. The clip, which was directed by Johan Carlén and shot in Sweden’s largest amusement park, features an appearance by the world-famous American circus sideshow Hellzapoppin.

The limited-edition “Black Waltz” EP included the tracks “Torn Apart”, “One Touch” and “Black Waltz”, all of which will also appear on AVATAR‘s upcoming album, produced by Tobias Lindell (EUROPE, MUSTASCH, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR).

AVATAR‘s third, self-titled album was released in 2010.
