Share new single ‘Rebel Forever’ and announce US live dates
Debut album ’24 Carat Diamond Trephine’ released November 22nd via So Knee Records
Avalanche Party are the feral garage-punk quintet from the North Yorkshire Moors who’ve built a prominent reputation off the back of their intense and immediate performances across Europe and the US.
The band have now shared new single ‘Rebel Forever’, taken from their eagerly anticipated debut album to be release on November 22nd. ‘Rebel Forever’ is a gothic, pulsating album highlight that’s now accompanied by a suitably nightmarish video.
Playing out is a dark, paranoid hallucination taking place in a cabin in the lonely northern countryside, we’re invited to take a trip in more ways than one. They tell us that the new video was “filmed over the course of a few days in deep, dark Berkshire. It shows a trip through time and the great outdoors and has two main stars.Django is a scaly fiend of the reptile family Chamaeleonidae who spends his time eating rump steak and shedding his dark and succulent past. Ron is a horrible WMC toilet of a cat who would rather the world left him alone.This broadcast was made possible by Welsh wizard Kyle ‘Eagle Burger’ Howells and his unflinching vigour, boundless generosity and eye for a mood. Rebel Forever.”
Avalanche Party have had heavy radio support, being championed by BBC Introducing, Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson and many many more.
The band have recorded live sessions for BBC 6Music, and were invited to London by KEXP to perform a live session as part of International Clash Day alongside the likes of Idles, Ghostpoet, Goat Girl and more. They were also hotly tipped by NME as future “ones to watch”.
The band have toured the UK & Europe constantly with numerous sell out shows, festival appearances and they’ve just returned from their first trip to the States, including performances at SXSW, New Colossus Festival in New York & headline shows in Los Angeles and Tijuana in Mexico. Notable UK performances include Reading & Leeds Festival, Isle of Wight Festival, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Tramlines Festival, Live at Leeds, Y-Not Festival, Humber Street Sesh, Truck Festival, 2000 Trees Festival, Deershed Festival, Twisterella Festival, Hit The North & Stockton Calling. European Festivals such as London Calling (Amsterdam), Psycho Mind Festival (Tilberg), Mikser Festival (Serbia) and Olgas Rock (Germany). This all alongside multiple European tours taking them to Belgium, France, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Serbia.
’24 Carat Diamond Trephine’ is undoubtedly a fist-raising crowd pleaser, but like contemporaries Fat White Family, Viagra Boys or The Blinders, they’ve used it as an opportunity to enforce their own birds-eye view of the world. They tackle hefty themes of anger and fear, the capitalist machine that drives us ever closer to the great flaming End, cloak-and-dagger corporate greed, the environment, lyrics of love, death and an individual’s walk through a world they were spat into, laughing as they go.
