Theatrical Swedish metal troupe Avatar are currently hard at work on their upcoming ninth album, the follow-up to 2020's Hunter Gatherer. But they've already got a summer break lined up. The band just announced a big North American headlining tour that will see them joined by the Howard Jones-led Light the Torch and nu-metal veterans Otep. See the itinerary below. Pre-sale tickets are available today (April 26th), with the regular on-sale set for Friday, April 29th at 10 a.m. local time. Visit Avatarmetal.com for tickets.

"They don't let us out much while we make our albums, so this summer will most likely turn out very dangerous for everyone involved," the band commented in a joint statement. "For all the tours we've done in North America, we have spent very little time there in the summer. Surely this must have led to a lot of unnecessary suffering that we are adamant on setting straight by applying necessary suffering. We know people crave some light-hearted tunes for their make out sessions on the beach, and some sweet melodies as they watch the sun set over the lake. We are here to destroy every single moment of summer time serenity. The sun will be the second hottest thing you'll see in July. To finally do something with Otep feels great, and to once again hit the road with Light the Torch will be awesome, as well."
