REVIEWS

“Avalanche have been making a name for themselves as purveyors of blistering Aussie hard-rock in much the same vein as those who came before them, with clear influences being taken from the likes of AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, and The Angels… they’re one band you need to watch”.
-
Rolling Stone Australia

“They’re fucking awesome”
- Joel O’Keeffe, Airbourne

"Raw rock n' roll from Sydney, Australia... definitely love their AC/DC style... Avalanche, look em up! Love it!" - Johnny Doom, Kerrang! UK

“I’d never heard of Avalanche before, and I’m extremely glad I have. If there’s one thing I know about these guys, it’s that they know how to rock.”
- Douglas Gorman,
Monster Children

“If you’re in the mood for some “heart-racing, gut-busting, roof crashing, piss-off rock n ‘roll”, then it’s hard to look past Aussie band Avalanche”
-
Tone Deaf

“‘Second Hand Band’ is a thrashing single that layers swirling guitars with frontman Steven Campbell’s emphatic vocals. The pub-rock single is a lot of fun and is bound to go off live.”
-
Music Feeds

“(Avalanche) are helping to rejuvenate Aussie rock, and in doing so are bringing together two generations of rock ’n’ roll fans.”
- Jamie Apps,
Inner West Independent

“An explosion of rock brilliance... a release that stays true to the rock n’ roll genre, with rolling drums, heavy electric guitars and infectious melodies. It will get anyone head-banging in no time”
-
Happy Mag

“Anyone that has ever said they don’t make good Rock bands anymore needs to download their latest EP… If ever there was a new band that was a perfect fit to tour with the greats such as Airbourne, Rose Tattoo, Baby Animals, The Angels, The Screaming Jets, The Living End, well let’s face it - even AC/DC, then its Avalanche.”
- Francis Populin,
Bumping Into Podcast

“At one point, a girl took her bra off and threw it onto the stage!… (they put) on an absolutely electrifying set, Avalanche is definitely a band you should check out”
- Alex Simpson,
Soniq Sounds

“Very catchy strong guitar riff’s that would make Angus Young jealous… With hard rock roots and their own flavour, Avalanche is to today’s generation what AC/DC was to the 70’s. They haven’t been around for long but have made a big splash in the industry and with fans”
-
Metal Roos

“If felt like I was watching a cross between Airborne and AC/DC. The energy was insane... Veronica played her blistering guitar solos from the front of the barriers and rocked out with the fans in the middle of the mosh pit. Avalanche always give 110% at their shows and it’s not something you want to miss!”
- Amelia and Liz Thompson,
Twinmusix

“Avalanche just shoulder charge you with energy and authenticity, there is nothing false about them. They are raw, gritty, and extremely talented musicians... Check out this EP its literally classic! And go to a show, you could not regret it.”
- Jade Guida,
Rawing in the Pit Media

“This is nothing but fun. That’s it. This is the band that went to school with the patches on their denim jackets, just like we did, but unlike us had the skill – and the will – to emulate their heroes. Avalanche is four people playing the music they love. And doing it superbly.”
- Andy Thorley,
Maximum Volume Music

“Wildfire guitarist Veronica Campbell regularly traipses into the crowd while pulling off some epic soloing... Plus, they rock like fuck.”
- Brian Giffin,
Loud Mag

EXTENDED BAND BIO

Avalanche are a 4 piece hard rock/pub rock band from Western Sydney in their 20s, playing heart-racing, gut busting, roof crashing, no bullshit Aussie rock 'n roll for a new generation.

They first started playing and rehearsing together in a steel factory in 2018, and after only 4 short years together they’ve made a name for themselves in the sticky floors of the national underground scene with their tenacious work ethic, non-stop touring schedule, and a signature sound & live show, which routinely leaves the audience covered in blood, sweat and beers.

Their latest single and music video ‘Second Hand Band’, the title track of their sophomore EP, was premiered in Rolling Stone Magazine, and on 1700; Melbourne’s only live youth-produced music TV show, along with features, interviews & reviews in a multitude of local & international publications including Tone Deaf, Fireworks Magazine, Music Feeds, The Music, Monster Children, Heavy Mag, Happy Mag, The Music, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Innerwest Independent, Something You Said, VENTS Magazine & more.

In the last 2 years, while in a pandemic no less, the band headlined Melbourne rock giant’s Kingswood’s ‘Juveniles’ album launch, played over a dozen sold-out shows at The Factory Theatre, Paddo RSL, Crowbar, UOW Unibar, and festivals, including Aussie Made and Home Brewed Festival. They've supported the likes of The Poor, Kingswood, Bad Moon Born, Barbariön, C.O.F.F.I.N. and more. They've became mainstays at Sydney’s most loved heavy music venue; Frankie’s Pizza By The Slice, even playing the infamous birthday bash on the venue’s 8th birthday, and they maintain a hectic touring schedule, bringing their raucous live show to packed audiences up and down the East Coast with rave reviews.

Their music videos for 'Second Hand Band' and 'Permanent Ink' (shot by HAUS Party [The Amity Affliction, Peking Duk, Guy Sebastion, North Lane]) have amassed almost 50k views on YouTube and over 120k views on Facebook. The EP has tens of thousands of streams across Spotify, Apple Music and more, and has sold thousands of physical copies worldwide. Their first EP ‘Sent From Hell’, released in 2019, has also sold over 1300 CD's worldwide.

No less than 3 tracks off ‘Second Hand Band’ ('Second Hand Band', ‘Permanent Ink’ & ‘Spit In My Mouth’) have debuted on the Top 10 in the independent Australian Charts. With ‘Get Back (To Fuckwit City)’ also debuting in the Top 3 on the Triple J Unearthed Rock Charts, and #6 on the overall Triple J charts, as well as landing the band the front cover of Heavy Mag’s Aus Artists Digi-Mag's 5th Issue.

The band have hosted the Metal Express Radio Guest DJ hour, who’s previous hosts included Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Y&T, Exodus and more. Their music has been played repeatedly on several commercial radio stations in Australia including on ABC Illawarra’s ‘Drive’ with Lindsay Mcdougall [Frenzal Rhomb], and on i98FM Illawarra's 1# radio station. They have become community radio favourites, enjoying repeated airplay across Australia and internationally on hundreds of rock radio shows, podcasts and playlists including; Homegrown, 3RRR, Valley FM, VOX FM, Rock Bottom, The Annex Radio Show, Hard Rock Hell and more.

In April 2022, Avalanche have released their new single ‘Bottle Of Sin’ now out everywhere! And already played on Triple M Hard N Heavy in AUS and Kerrang! Radio, Planet Rock and Total Rock in the UK. It's the ultimate post-lockdown party track and the perfect soundtrack for your next night of bad decisions! The track was written during lockdown, and recorded at A Sharp Recording Studio with Grammy nominated and ARIA Award winning producer Steve James, who’s credits include Sex Pistols, Airbourne, The Screaming Jets, The Angels, Cold Chisel, Hawkwind, The Superjesus, Mental As Anything, and even ‘Always Look On The Bright Side of Life’ from Monty Python’s Life Of Brian! In May/June the band will be embarking on a limited run of tour dates across the East Coast of Australia for the single launch, with more new music coming from the band with Steve beyond that.

Avalanche is made up of the husband-and-wife duo of lead vocalist & bassist Steven Campbell; a charismatic frontman and sheer force of nature, incessantly sweating, running, jumping and screaming all over the stage whilst stripped to the waist, and Veronica ‘V’ Campbell; a tall, dark and aggressively powerful lead guitarist; a mass of shaggy black hair in a bra and ripped jeans, with a Gibson SG constantly by her side. She is bound by neither space nor convention, often playing her blistering guitar solos on the floor, in the crowd, out on the street and even in the toilets.

Then, the incredibly skilled and tightest drummer you'll ever hear, and youngest member of the band; Ryan Roma aka ‘ADHD’ on drums, and rhythm machine and absolute life of the party (seriously, be prepared) Arthur Divis aka 'the new guy' (not really) on rhythm guitar.

Their unique sound is tinged by the influences of their dad’s record collection and the dirty pub rock of Australia’s past, but played through the interpretation of their own generation. Avalanche are waving the flag for Aussie Rock, giving no fucks and winning over new fans every time they play.
