Swedish band Avatar has launched Kickstarter campaign for the creation of “Legend of Avatar Country,” a musical featurette to the album with the same name.
”We are not a normal band, and ‘Avatar Country’ is not a normal album,” said vocalist Johannes Eckerström. “The whole idea was always to take our audience on a crazy journey into the stranger parts of our minds and the heart of our love for metal music. As a very visual group, this is the natural conclusion of the ‘Avatar Country’ saga, and we hope people will be as excited to see it as we are. It will be a great document of a very special time in our career and in the life of our fans. We have some very special rewards lined up to make it worth people’s while.”
Avatar has teamed up with Kerrang! magazine to bring this film to life.
The Kickstarter campaign will launch Monday, Oct. 29. Visit the band’s official website for more information.
Avatar is on tour in the United States with Trivium on the “The Sin and the Sentence World Tour.”
