Avatarium have entered the studio to begin work on their second album, it’s been reported.
It’ll be Candlemass bassist Leif Edling’s second album with his side-project following their self-titled 2013 release. They issued the All I Want EP last year.
Edling, vocalist Jennie-Ann Smith, guitarist Marcus Jidell, drummer Lars Skold and keyboardist Carl Westholm have also announced a run of European dates in November, including a show at London’s Underworld on November 22.
Jidell says: “The last six months we have been writing, rehearsing, demoing and now we finally started the recordings for our next album.
“We’re all super excited about the new songs and since the album will be released in October, what could be a better way to celebrate than to go on tour?”
Avatarium will be joined on the trip by The Vintage Caravan and Spiders.
Further details of the album which will be issued via Nuclear Blast will be revealed in due course.
