Avatar have announced a lengthy U.S. headlining tour that will keep the Swedish metallers on the road for nearly two months. The band unleashed its latest album, Hunter Gatherer, last year, and now the theatrical act will finally be able to perform the songs in front of a live audience.

The tour, dubbed “Going Hunting”, will kick off September 1st in Albany, New York, and close out with an October 18th show in Seattle.

“We have announced many tours over the years, and every time we say that we couldn’t be more excited,” Avatar said in a collective statement. “Well, this is the tour that was supposed to be announced a year-and-a-half ago. A year and a half which has felt more like a lifetime.”

The band added, “Saying we couldn’t be more excited is an understatement. Never before have we ever been this hungry and passionate to create a show for you and for ourselves. We are not leaving anything behind. This show will be the most beautiful, angry, entertaining and honest production we have ever done. We are sparing nothing. We live and die for this. We are ‘Going Hunting!’”

Avatar will bring Magic Sword and Tallah along for the ride. Tickets for the newly announced dates go on sale this Friday (June 11th) at 10 a.m. local venue time via Ticketmaster, with pre-sales beginning as early as Tuesday (June 8th).
