We’ve teamed up with Yorkshire garage rock five-piece Avalanche Party to co-curate a huge line up, featuring grunge-pop trio Calva Louise, anthemic Stockport outfit Kashmere, the return of indie-noir band Lungs and a raucous headline set from Avalanche Party themselves.
Avalanche Party is feral garage-punk rock & roll from the North Yorkshire Moors. Their sound is intense and immediate, so new yet so familiar, 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 past few years have seen Avalanche Party tear away from the moors, greeting the UK, Europe and USA with intense live performances. Hotly tipped by many for big industry success, the band has had heavy radio support, being championed by BBC Introducing, Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson, Vic Galloway at BBC Scotland, John Kennedy at Radio X, Edith Bowman at Virgin Radio, Jim Gellatly at Amazing Radio and KEXP’s Kevin Cole & KCRW’s Jason Kramer in the USA.
The band have recorded two live sessions for BBC 6Music, and were invited to London by KEXP to perform a live session as part of International Clash Day. They were also named by NME as a part of their global Top 100 Bands for 2019.
The band has toured the UK & Europe constantly with numerous sell out shows, festival appearances and they’ve just returned from their first trip to the United States and Mexico, including performances at SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, New Colossus Festival in New York & headline shows in Los Angeles, California and Tijuana, Mexico.
“The most exciting rock & roll band in the UK right now” – BBC Radio 1
“A tsunami of mega riffs and eardrum-popping bass lines. Definitely don’t want to wear your Sunday best to one of their raucous gigs” – NME
This is a standing show.
