Avalanche is a band from the Sydney area and is a typical Australian group in as much as it specialise in down and dirty, truly gritty rock and roll that kicks you in the balls and then drinks your beer! I guess that if you distilled every Aussie rock band then what you would have is something like the glorified in your face pub rock that we have here. It’s sweaty, hard working, loud and has a ‘who gives a fuck’ attitude.

This is a band that plays what it wants and how it wants, you can come along for the ride if you wish but, if not, then they are still going n the journey anyway. Formed in 2018, this is the bands second EP on which the band continues its unsophisticated but very much essential mission to bring rock and roll to the great unwashed and they do this will a great deal of vim and vigour and a take it or leave it attitude best seen in the young. The band is tight and compact with Steven Campbell excelling on gritty vocals and bass with real riffing fireworks form Veronica Taleski on lead and Arthur Divis on rhythm Guitar with Ryan Roma on drums.

There is nothing pretentious here, just honest to goodness hard rock with that typical Australian swagger and a great deal of slightly sleazy fun.
