“The most exciting rock & roll band in the UK right now” - BBC Radio 1
Avalanche Party is feral garage rock & roll from the wild North Yorkshire Moors, hopped up on adrenalin and amphetamines. Their sound is intense and immediate, so new yet so familiar and brimming with an urgency that explodes off the stage like the front lines of a war you didn’t even realise was being fought. Every note played through white knuckles, every word spat through gritted teeth. The beats blast like cannons while the guitars stampede like spooked stallions surging ever onward, snorting, snarling and tearing apart everything in their path.
The past year has seen Avalanche Party tear away from the moors, raising venues all around the UK and Europe to the ground with intense live performances, including Reading & Leeds Festival and a headline performance at Isle of Wight Festival. Hotly tipped by many for big success the band has had heavy radio support, being championed by BBC Introducing, BBC Radio1, BBC 6Music, Radio X etc as well as KCRW and KEXP in the USA.
