Avatar have announced an extensive 2022 UK and European tour under the banner Going Hunting.

The 29-date tour is set to kick off on January 8 in Nottingham and will feature some of the biggest headline shows of the band's career to date in venues such as L’Olympia in Paris, O2 Forum in London and Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, before climaxing at Slagthuset in Malmö, Sweden on March 12.

The band say, “We have announced many tours over the years, and every time we say that we couldn’t be more excited. 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. 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!” 

The general on-sale for the tour begins at 10am BST on July 1 at AvatarMetal.com.
