AVATAR – Live Video Clip Posted


AVATAR will release first concept album “Feathers & Flesh” on Friday, May 13th, 2016 via Entertainment One (eOne) in North America and Canada and Another Century overseas. The new release will be the band’s follow-up to “Hail The Apocalypse” released in 2014, which cracked the Billboard Top 200 for the first time in the band’s career.

The album contains a story too extensive for any booklet, so Avatar made a book; a fully illustrated 60 page, 109 verse poem hardcover book.

Taking a break from releasing clips from the new album, today Avatar drops a live video shot at last year’s Wacken Open Air festival. Check out “Smells Like A Freakshow” HERE.

COUGH – Premiere New Song


Richmond doom quartet, COUGH, has shared a second new song from their forthcoming offering, Still The Pray, their first new full-length in five years. The crushing eleven-minute-long “Dead Among The Roses” has just premiered via Stereogum, who issues: “Still They Pray…makes a strong case for them as the best straight-ahead stoner sludge band in the game today.
