Sydney’s Avalanche share new single & video “Second Hand Band”

Avalanche

 

Sydney’s hardest-rocking four piece Avalanche have today announced their rollicking new single Second Hand Band, a powerful track that encapsulates what it’s like for a rock n roll band on their way to the top, out today – April 9.  The band have also released a potent video to accompany Second Hand Band, an ode to the band’s beginnings, rehearsing in an old steel factory in Sydney’s west.

Avalanche’s highly anticipated new EP of the same name is set for release on May 11, and the group will be heading out on a massive east coast tour to celebrate, kicking off at Crowbar in Sydney for Home Brewed Festival on April 9, then moving through Port Kembla, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Wollongong, Newcastle, back through Sydney, then wrapping up at The Basement in Canberra on August 14.

The new single, Second Hand Band, is evocative of the Aussie pub rock greats – AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, The Angels – but with a modern, unique Avalanche spin.  The listener can hear the years of practice, passion and grind that has gone into this project, and anyone who has ever dreamt of a life as a musician will relate to the subject matter behind this heavy, gritty romp.

Lead vocalist Steven Campbell says, “With Second Hand Band, we tried to capture our experiences as a young rock band in Australia and the way we kinda see ourselves and how others may see us in the industry; thoroughly used, gently bruised and in somewhat working order and trying to find our own voice, where all the music we play is influenced by what we grew up on, the music in our dad’s record collection and the dirty pub rock of Australia’s past, but played through our generation. Because when you’re first starting out as a band and you’re at the absolute bottom of the feeding chain, a good live show is the only thing you have, so you better make it fucking phenomenal.  That’s what we learned very early on and we always work our arses off at every show to do that, and then we kinda worked backwards from there to get that on tape and in our songwriting, and so the single and EP was born.”

The video for Second Hand Band captures exactly that – the exceptional live show that has been at the forefront of Avalanche’s practice since the very beginning. Dramatic, sweaty and exciting, the video demonstrates Avalanche’s commitment to true entertainment.

The EP is as dirty, hard-rocking and moshpit-filling as one might imagine after hearing the single Second Hand Band for the first time.  Recorded at DEF WOLF Studios with producer and engineer Mark Matula, the EP is as hectic and brash as you’d hope for from a rock n roll band like Avalanche.  It’s a full-body experience; guitars and drums right in your face from the get-go, with lead vocalist Steven Campbell’s voice punching through the noise. Speaking on the inspiration behind the EP, Steven reflects, “Well, this EP basically is about our experiences so far as a rock band and also just as people and where we’re at in our lives and jobs and all that.  We have songs like Down in The Gutter, Permanent Ink and Spit in My Mouth that are very fast, aggressive songs, about life and fuckwits getting you down, not taking what others try to shove down your throat and not caring about what other people think.  Then we have ‘Get Back (To Fuckwit City)’ which is basically just a fun, tongue in cheek ode to our home city of Sydney!”

 

 

The true Avalanche experience is to witness them live – and luckily for fans they will be heading out on an extensive Australian tour to celebrate the release of Second Hand Band in April through to August 2021. Giving audiences a taste of what to expect from their explosive live show, Steven says, “Our live shows are what we do all this stuff for and when people come they should expect a good time.  They should feel like they’re at the craziest, wildest party they’ve ever been too, you know the one that ends up on the local news.  The ones you can’t quite remember, but you’ll never forget.  They should expect blood, sweat, piss and hell even some tears sometimes – our live show is what we’ve come to be known for and something you gotta experience to understand, and our new material encapsulated it better than ever.”

Second Hand Band (single) is out April 9. Second Hand Band (EP) is out May 11 and is available to pre-save and pre-order now.

Avalanche drop new video for single ‘Get Back (To Fuckwit City)’

Avalanche

 

Avalanche are 4 misfits from Sydney’s west, playing electrifying, roof-crashing, piss-off rock n’ roll
for a new generation. Forming and rehearsing in an old steel factory in 2018, the band have firmly
cemented themselves into the sticky floors of the national underground scene in just 2 short years,
with major national & international airplay, 4 major releases, non-stop gigging and touring, and
their own music festival.

Now, the band are proud to present their follow up single to this year’s ‘Permanent Ink’, aptly titled
Get Back (To Fuckwit City)’, about living in none-other-than beautiful Sydney City. It’s a raw,
punchy, anthemic ode to our great city and the often-fascinating civilians which reside in it. The
track was recorded at DEF WOLF Studios with Producer and Engineer Mark Matula, and is to be
released on Nov 16 via X-RAY Records and Golden Robot Global Entertainment – with a music
video, release tour and upcoming EP also in the works. With ‘Get Back (To Fuckwit City)’, the band
worked hard to produce a warm, old-school feel, practically recording live in the studio, with a no
fills, no frills, guitar-in-amp, stripped-back approach.

This is because, Avalanche are hard rock. Real honest to God hard rock, as only 20-somethings
from Sydney’s West; famous for producing tradies, drongo’s and long-arse Centrelink queues; can
do. Tinged by the influence of their dad’s record collection and the dirty pub rock of Australia’s
past, but played through the interpretation of their own generation. Avalanche have moulded and
captured their signature sound & live show in ‘Get Back (To Fuckwit City)’, one which routinely leaves the audience covered in blood, sweat and spit – and walking away feeling like you’ve just been punched in the gut.

Earlier this year, Avalanche signed to Golden Robot Records, joining such acts as L.A. Guns, Vanilla Fudge, Rose Tattoo, Electric Mary, Palace Of The King, Hookers & Blow and more, and released ‘Permanent Ink’ with them in March. They held the single launch party at Frankie’s Pizza By The Slice on March 7 where they performed to a packed-out room, headlining Melbourne heavy rock giant’s Kingswood’s ‘Juveniles’ album launch.‘Get Back (To Fuckwit City)’ marks their second release with the label.

Avalanche release new single ‘Get Back (To F*ckwit City)’

Avalanche

 

Sydney hard rockers Avalanche are back with their new single Get Back (To F*ckwit City), out now via X-Ray Records. Get Back (To F*ckwit City) is the follow up to their recent single Permanent Ink.

Avalanche are 4 misfits from Sydney’s west, playing electrifying, roof-crashing, rock n’ roll for a new generation.

Get Back (To F*ckwit City) is a raw, punchy and anthemic ode to the band’s hometown and the often-fascinating civilians which reside in it. Recorded at DEF WOLF Studios with producer and engineer Mark Matula, the track utilises a warm, old-school feel, practically recorded live in the studio with a no fills, no frills, guitar-in-amp, stripped-back approach. This is the song you’ll be singing in your head whenever you’re stuck in traffic, when you miss your train, when your boss pi**es you off, when your folks kick you out, when you’re cut off at the bar… when you’re urinating on a city wall in front of a cop. This is your song.
