2024 will be quite a year for AVATAR. With headline tours in Europe and Latin America announced, and festival dates in the US, the band is set to have a monumental start to their year. Europe already has 9 sold out shows with many others on their way to selling out. Avatar‘s first headline tour in Latin America is a milestone in and of itself. The band will headline a Sonic Temple stage this May. Their first headline set at a DWP Festival.
AVATAR achieved their first #1 single The Dirt I’m Buried In, and were recently immortalised as a fossil from Southern Sweden; discovered by Dr. Ben Thuy, a paleontologist at the Luxembourg Natural History Museum. This fossil is now known as Ophiocoma avatar. The name Ophiocoma avatar, is valid for eternity. AVATAR are now a part of the Earth’s history, of the palaeontological heritage of Sweden, and has gained a small piece of immortality.
