"The King Wants You" is taken from the band’s forthcoming album, Avatar Country, which is set to be released January 12.

Watch the video in full below:

Avatar Country is the Swedish metal band's seventh studio effort, following their 2016 full-length Feathers & Flesh. From the looks of it, it seems like Avatar Countrywill take us further inside the band's conceptual parallel universe.

"We have, as a country, decided to finally open up our borders to Avatar Country and reveal the truth behind the band, our existence and our king. Therefore, this is the story, and a way of telling the story, that's never been done before," Johannes Michael Gustaf Eckerström previously told AP.

"Avatar as a group, and Avatar Country as a nation always strive to move forward, find new challenges and new angles on what we are creating, meaning there are never any real kickbacks to anything done in the past. The king looks forward, not backward."

Plus, the band have a pretty extensive touring schedule to kick off 2018 on the right note. Check out their full list of tour dates below!
