Avatar Announces Live Album ‘The King Live In Paris’

Jason Bullinger for Alternative Revolt

From the Royal Court of Avatar Country on March 8 in the Year of the King (2019).

Avatar has announced a new live LP today titled The King Live In Paris recorded live at Download Festival 2018 held in Paris, France. The new release underscores fan favorites such as “A Statue Of The King,” “Let It Burn,” and “Hail The Apocalypse.” Avatar will release The King Live In Paris on May 17, 2019, via Entertainment One (eOne).

“Looking back at all that’s happened and what’s still going on it feels more like a document from a pivotal battle than a live album,” says frontman Johannes Eckerström.

“In the past, I’ve found it hard to motivate making something like this, but as time goes on, I find it fortunate that we get to have our work captured like this. I realize now more than ever that we are in the process of constant change. This release is a version of Avatar that didn’t exist a year prior, and that already has morphed into something else. The show at Download Paris was a particular one for many reasons. We are very proud of the result.”
