“This is honest to God, old fashioned, razor sharp Garage rock made to steal your girlfriend, snap your neck and leave you begging for more.” Evolution Emerging
Avalanche Party is garage-punk 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 Pistols, The Clash, The Stooges, The Damned; They’re all there but twisted into a much leaner, much fiercer beast. This is punk at its most feral, garage at its most primal, this is rock’n’roll in its most fearsome form, with its teeth bared spitting like a cornered pit-bull.
