Sweden’s most creative and exciting export, AVATAR, debuted the official music video for their new track “Silence in the Age of Apes”, which serves as the lead single from their highly anticipated eighth full-length, Hunter Gatherer, due out August 7th, 2020 via Century Media Records.
Continuing to smash the boundaries between band, theater troupe, and cinematic masterminds, the band also has revealed their new wardrobes alongside the stunning visuals for “Silence in the Age of Apes”, a ready-made anthem for the modern age searching for a collective meaning amidst the savagery of technology.
From the very first riff of the explosive lead single, listeners will find a darker, futuristic, and entirely new version of AVATAR. Their bold manifesto, Hunter Gatherer, is an unflinchingly ruthless study of a clueless humankind’s ever-increasing velocity into an uncertain future, furthering the reach of the band’s always expanding dark roots. The forthcoming album is the darkest, most sinister version of the band yet, with deep studies of cruelty, technology, disdain, and deprivation.
